About Us

About T W Boorman Funeral Services

The team at our Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells funeral homes 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 Tonbridge funeral home has its own service venue.

Here at T W Boorman Funeral Services 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.

She says “I find my job very rewarding and it’s a real privilege to be able to help families at their most vulnerable fulfil their wishes for their loved ones. Being the community champion is also a great part of my job, being able to be involved with the community, local care homes and charitable events.”

I like to think I make a hard job that much easier for them and I always tell my families that nothing is a problem and I adopt the attitude that nothing is too much trouble, my care to families extends to after the service as well.”
