About Chris White Funeral Directors
At Chris White Funeral Directors, we have been helping local families at one of the most difficult times since 1880. The business that became Chris White Funeral Directors was founded by Mr Henry Ingram at Goldsworth Road.
Chris White Funeral Directors was established in 1982 by Chris White, a reputable local builder who, like many undertakers before him, started his career as a carpenter and progressed into the funeral service business. Starting out with one branch in Wilton, the business expanded in 2011 to open a second branch in Salisbury.
We bring empathy and experience to support you in planning your loved one’s funeral and fulfilling your wishes to the best of our ability.
Our experienced and caring staff will advise and support you at every stage of the funeral planning process, with a wide range of funeral options and transparent pricing.
Here at Chris White 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.
