About Holmes & Daughters
Funeral Director in Teddington

Holmes & Daughters was first established in 1993 in Ashford, Middlesex, by brothers David and Andrew Holmes. Andrew had industry experience, having taken an apprenticeship with a well-known firm, whilst David managed the finances. The brothers’ interest in the funeral business stemmed from their stepfather being a coroner’s officer, and they were keen to establish their own family business.

Enlisting the help of family members including their other two brothers, sister, sister-in-law and some close family friends, the business thrived as it offered an alternative to the established funeral directors in the area. Due to a good reputation, Holmes & Daughters was soon able to expand, opening offices in Feltham in 1994, Teddington in 1995 and East Sheen in 1996.

However, due to unfortunate circumstances the Holmes family decided to sell their business to G M Luff & Partners in 2000. John Holmes stayed on with G M Luff & Partner as a Board member with responsibility for the day to day running of the area he was so familiar with.

As part of the Ford Mears group, Holmes & Daughters continues to provide a caring and professional service to the local community around Teddington, Twickenham, Hampton Hill and Kingston upon Thames.

Further investment in the business by Ford Mears has meant that Holmes & Daughters is now able to offer a wider range of services and vehicle options, whilst still providing a personalised service that honours the legacy of Holmes & Daughters’ independent, family-run business.
