With our vast knowledge and experience allied to our meticulous attention to detail, Lyndsay Ellis @ Vale Funeral Service endeavours to meet the needs of our clients and strive to provide excellence in all aspects of our service.
Well-known husband and wife team, Lyndsay & Nicola Ellis are holders of the Certificate in Funeral Practice accredited by The Independent Funeral Directors College and licensed members of The British Institute of Funeral Directors (BIFD). Which help equip them with the necessary knowledge and experience to be able to guide you through a distressing and difficult time.
An appointment can be arranged at our comfortable premises at 181 Court Road, Barry or in the convenience of your own home.
We know and understand how difficult it can be to arrange a funeral; we strive to offer a complete, individual, caring, and professional service to all families from the moment of the first contact. We'll endeavour to help you every step of the way providing guidance and support at a time when you need it most.
We consider it our privilege when a family entrusts their loved one into our care, and we guarantee that we will provide the highest possible level of care. We strive to listen to all our client’s wishes and deliver a personalised funeral as a lasting tribute to their loved one.
We passionately believe that bereaved families deserve a funeral for their loved one to be tailored to their personal wishes at an affordable cost and the best possible value. At times of bereavement, you need to know that your nearest and dearest are being looked after in a caring and personal way. We embrace all religions and are more than confident to advise on non-religious services.
We are committed to being open, honest, and trustworthy in caring for the families and loved ones we are privileged to serve. As an established local company, we treat each family we come into contact with as individuals. Our sole intention is to make a very difficult time as easy as is possible.
Being part of our community, working in the local area means we are in touch with the needs of the community. You are welcome to visit us at our office at 181 Court Road, where you will find a warm and professional approach or if you would find it more convenient, funeral arrangements can be made in the comfort of your own home.
Our aim is to offer a fully inclusive funeral service, liaising with all the necessary third parties on your behalf, taking into account your wishes and requirements when planning the perfect send-off for your loved one. Although we are based in Barry, we are more than happy to assist and give advice in the event of a death occurring away from home. We cannot make the pain of losing a loved one go away, but through our efforts, our hope is to make the journey of grief less lonely and perhaps a little easier. Being established together with our very high standards, we take special pride in meeting each and every need you may face during this difficult time.
Our mission is to serve you with respect and empathy and to treat you like our family, providing the most meaningful, compassionate, and memorable funeral service for your loved one.
