About W Hodges Funeral Directors
Born in 1841, William Hodges worked to establish a local reputation as a builder and stonemason. In the nineteenth century, it was common for builders and carpenters to be part-time undertakers too. With Victorian funerals and masonry becoming more lavish, records show that by 1882 as William reached his forties, funerals and masonry had become his main business.
The team at our Sevenoaks 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. Our Sevenoaks funeral home has its own service venue.
Here at W Hodges Funeral Directors 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.

Funeral Arranger / Trainee Funeral Director

Our business exists to help the bereaved to make fitting arrangements for their loved one’s last journey and to provide lasting memories for family and friends.
We do this with a positive, caring and understanding approach.

We value diversity and treat everyone with the same respect, courtesy and dignity.
We are a professional organisation and we strive to achieve the highest possible standards in everything we do and to improve upon these standards continuously.
