A total commitment to
At Daniel Robinson & Sons, we have a total commitment to the service of the bereaved and the care of the deceased. We understand that this is a difficult time and are available whenever you need us. We are a family run business, offering a personal, professional service, delivered by our friendly team with empathy and dedication. We treat every person and every funeral as unique, and our clients receive the utmost care and attention.
Our activities within the local community have raised over £800,000 for local hospices, including St Clare Hospice near Harlow, Farleigh Hospice in Chelmsford, St Helena Hospice in Colchester and Isabel Hospice in Welwyn Garden City. A number of our managers are members of local Rotary Clubs and Chambers of Commerce, and we support numerous other clubs and organisations, including church diaries and parish magazines.
We have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds through events such as our annual charity golf day, in recent years this money has been used to fund private, specialist physiotherapy, for six local disabled children who have cerebral palsy, helping them to gain greater mobility.
The business was first established in 1892 when Daniel Robinson bought a building company in Stansted, where he began to make coffins and to arrange funerals. In 1912 he purchased another in Bishop’s Stortford where he also arranged funerals and supplied memorials.
By the year 2000, the company had grown to include offices in Harlow, Great Dunmow, Sawbridgeworth, Braintree and Epping.
Today, we help people across Essex and Hertfordshire, with further funeral homes in Halstead, Loughton and Waltham Abbey. The business is owned mainly by the third generation of the family founder, Daniel Robinson. Gary Neill, MBIE, is the Managing Director of the Company and is based at the Head Office in Bishop’s Stortford.
