About Us

    About Okehampton & District Funeral Service (inc. Redstones)

    At Okehampton & District Funeral Service (inc. Redstones), we have been helping local families at one of the most difficult times for five generations.

    David Albery purchased the well established Redstones Funeral Service (of South Zeal) in 2015. A business that had been held in the same family for five generations. Keith Redstone pictured opposite.

    David is still involved in the day to day running of the business and still conducts all the funerals from Okehampton and District with the same high standards and attention to detail that the town has come to expect.

    The team at our Okehampton funeral home will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one.

    Here at Okehampton & District Funeral Service we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
