A & A Walters are privileged to serve the people of the Dudley, Sandwell and Wolverhampton boroughs since being established in Tipton in 1850. With well-appointed premises also in Sedgley and Bilston we are frequently asked to care for families throughout the Black Country and beyond. After more than 167 years in the Walters family, we are proud of our long history and to this day remain true to our founding principles of ‘Respect, Integrity, Flexibility and Value’.
With so many funeral directors to choose from our longevity and reputation is your assurance of our commitment to you and your family; both now and into the future. We do not take for granted the faith placed in us by generation after generation and our number one priority is always to provide the highest possible level of service, care and support to those who entrust their loved one to us.
Whilst we continue to uphold the traditions and values of our forefathers, (our Great-Grandfather has recently been immortalised as a character at the Black Country Living Museum for his philanthropy and support of those without means in Victorian society,) today we adopt a modern and progressive approach to the needs of families in the 21st Century. This respect for both the old and new is reflected in the range of vehicles we offer – we are the only funeral director in the area with a highly distinctive vintage style hearse to compliment horse-drawn hearse funerals or our prestigious modern Jaguar XJ fleet.
We were awarded Golden Charter National Funeral Planner of the Year in 2012 and have received their Funeral Planner Award for the West Midlands and North Wales region no less than seven times. We are a long-term member of SAIF (Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors) and as such abide by its strict Code of Practice.
At A & A Walters we believe that everyone is unique and should be treated as such. Our highly experienced, dedicated and qualified team are here to support and guide you through all aspects of funeral arrangements from the moment you call. Whether you are looking for a traditional type of funeral service or something more contemporary, we believe that no detail is too small and we will do our utmost to ensure even the most individual of requirements are fulfilled. Above all you can rest assured that your loved one will be treated with the utmost dignity and respect.
We cater for the non-religious and people of all faiths and cultures and through our extensive contacts are able to ensure a dignified and smooth repatriation of your loved one abroad should this be required. Tailoring advice to suit individual tastes and budgets, we offer an extensive range of coffins and caskets, from the traditional to the bespoke to the environmentally friendly. Likewise, personalised details including floral tributes, orders of service, monumental masonry, keepsake jewellery and unique movie tributes can all be arranged.
To find out more about how we can support you through this difficult time then don’t hesitate to contact us. We would consider it an honour to look after your family as we would our own.
