When someone you love dies, you can depend on us. We will take care of you and your loved one every step of the way.
S Smith & Sons Funeral Directors are long established in the Edenbridge, Kent community – from the moment you speak to us, you will feel reassured. We are proud of what we do because above all we are here to help you.
We take the time to listen to ensure the funeral service is as individual as the person we are entrusted to take care of. We are people like you and we are honoured to be able to help.

Edenbridge market was established by a Charter granted by Henry III in 1227. The site of a regular cattle market from the mid-1840s until 1928, the rings for tethering the cattle can still be found on the east wall. Today it is a car park (free) and a general market is held on Thursdays.
We are also extremely fortunate to have the Eden Valley Woodland Burial Ground very close by, operated and managed by the Natural Death Centre charity, which has been at the forefront of the green burial movement since the early 1990s. The NDC runs the Association of Natural Burial Grounds, the only organisation that monitors and audits the green burial movement in the UK.
EVBG is open to people of all faiths or none and offers an affordable, positive experience for bereaved families from any area, a place where one can sit & reflect, amidst nature.
It is a beautiful, truly natural site with no gravestones, but each grave is marked by planting a memorial tree which can be chosen from a selected list. There is also the option to plant the grave area with suitable wild flowers. These trees will develop into a managed twenty acre wood that will remain as a nature reserve and sanctuary, for wildlife & humans alike. There is an existing seven acre ancient bluebell woodland at the north end of the burial ground that is full of birdlife including nightingales that sing day & night in the springtime. Ceremonies can be held elsewhere or at the graveside and catering after the funeral can be held at the Kent & Surrey Golf Club which adjoins it. S. Smith & Sons work in partnership with EVBG and offer the highest standard, low impact & fully biodegradable traditionally styled woodland coffins, in addition to our Woodland Memorial Pack.
