Howard Chadwick Funeral Service was originally founded in 1991. Howard, his wife Sandra and nephew Alistair Cox had been working in various areas of the funeral profession and felt strongly that there should be an independent funeral service in the Wallingford Area. In the beginning funeral arrangements were made either by home visits or at Howard & Sandra’s home.
We took over the Wallingford Cemetery Chapel and it was dedicated and opened for use in July 1994 then in 2008 we moved to our new premises in Benson Lane which was formerly the site of the old French Gardens. It was purpose built and designed by ourselves.
In 2001 Neil (Alistair’s Father) joined the team at Clockhouse Cottage, with Lisa (Howard’s Daughter) in 2010, David (Howard’s Son) in 2011, Ryan joined in 2014 and Ashley (Alistair's twin Brother) in 2017.
