About Forsey and Son

Founded in 1946 by Wilfred Albert Forsey, we remain an independent family-run firm of funeral directors offering a personal, professional and sympathetic service with complete flexibility to accommodate the needs of our clients. Our success has meant that we now cover a wide area of Somerset, providing a caring 24 hour service.

Membership of the professional organisations regulating funeral directing provides reassurance that we observe strict codes of practice in all aspects of our work.

Owners Adrian Forsey and his son Samuel with their colleagues would be pleased to assist you with any matters in complete confidence.
