HAVEN Funeral Services

HAVEN Funeral Services is an independent funeral company owned by Christopher Wickenden. We operate funeral homes in West London and Hillingdon and an international repatriation business which provides services throughout the UK.

HAVEN is founded upon traditional values, We are committed providing support and dignity for bereaved families and their loved one, through our caring, modern approach and up-to-date facilities. We strive to give bereaved families – who may be unfamiliar with funeral procedures – all the choices needed to make the funeral experience a meaningful and positive one.

We hope that this website will act as a guide to some of the issues you need to consider, when arranging a funeral or repatriation, as well as some of the options that are available.

We would be happy to discuss any questions you may have at one of our funeral homes, on the phone, or in your home.


Bereaved families and friends often have a desire to mark the life of the deceased in a tangible way. After the funeral you might consider erecting a memorial on the grave or cremated remains plot. We have experts in our team who will be able to talk through the range of memorial options that are available.

New Branch Opening

HAVEN Funeral Services - HayesWe are pleased to announce the opening of our new Funeral Home in Kingshill Avenue, Hayes. We have fully refurbished the premises and are proud that we now provide the local community with tasteful modern premises with excellent facilities for our families and their loved ones.

In common with all our funeral homes the fully-equipped mortuary is on-site enabling us to keep the deceased on the premises rather than needing to transfer them to other locations.

We also have a designated wash facility for those customers requiring a religious wash prior to the funeral ceremony.

Our funeral arranger, Jacqui Hawkins, has 10 years’ experience working in funerals and with bereaved families.

Steve Thomas is the Director responsible for Hayes and also manages HAVEN’s Repatriation business.
