About Hansfords Funeral Service
Hansfords Funeral Service is an independent family run business, originally established in Beer over fifty years ago.
Charlie Hansford was succeeded by his daughter, Trudy Rodgers, who along with her husband Dave and son Brendon, have been serving the community of Beer, Seaton and surrounding villages for the past twenty five years.
The business was acquired by Grassby & Sons in early 2012 but continues with involvement and consultation from Trudy and Dave.
Grassby & Sons are a long established family run business with their main branch, Grassby Funeral Service, in Dorchester.
Grassby & Sons have another branch in Sidmouth (Potburys Funeral Service), a memorial showroom in Axminster (Norton Memorials), as well as four branches in Dorset which are located in Weymouth, Wyke Regis, Blandford Forum and Sturminster Newton.
All branches are supported by the masonry works at Grassby Memorials located near Dorchester which has been operating since 1861.
In 2013, the business acquired premises in Trevelyan Rd, Seaton which were sensitively converted to incorporate the main offices and chapel of rest for Hansfords Funeral Service.
Colin Comber is the Funeral Director in Seaton, where he is ably assisted by Karen Cooper and Chris Claydon.
Colin, Karen and Chris are well known amongst the local community of Seaton and Beer.
Hansfords Funeral Service are members of NAFD (National Association of Funeral Directors) and SAIF (National Society of Allied Independent Funeral Directors).
