Funeral directors in Manningtree

Geo Paskell is the oldest branch of The Hunnaball Family Funeral Group and has a special place in our hearts, as do the people of Manningtree, Wix and the surrounding areas. Our team, led by Saul Hunnaball, is always prepared to welcome the bereaved at their most distressing time, and guide them through the intricacies of arranging a funeral.

We help with all the practicalities as we are well used to working alongside celebrants, medical professionals and legal advisors. As bereavement can, sadly, occur at any time, our teams are always on the alert to help. We have a team of experienced funeral directors, as well as our first responders are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Frequently asked questions in Manningtree

  • Can you arrange a woodland burial?

    woodland burial, or green burial, is an increasingly popular alternative to a traditional funeral ceremony. There are a number of woodland, meadow, and green burial sites across Essex and Suffolk, all of which we have contact with and can arrange a funeral ceremony. Most of them also have a chapel or venue where a service or ceremony can take place prior to the burial. Please, talk to a funeral arranger to find out more, or look at our website where there is more information.

  • Can you recommend a minster or a funeral celebrant?

    The Hunnaball Family Funeral Group are happy to work with any minister of religion or funeral celebrant you choose. We also have a list of funeral celebrants and ministers of religion of all kinds who we know are very good. We will not recommend a person to officiate at a funeral ceremony if we have not observed them in action or are not completely confident of their high standards.

  • Are you part of the Hunnaball Family Funeral Group?

    Geo. Paskell and sons are a part of the Hunnaball Family Funeral Group and have been there since the very beginning when, in 1983, Trevor and Melanie Hunnaball purchased the business. In many ways, Geo. Paskell of Manningtree has helped set the very high standards of service, compassion and professionalism that are at the very heart of the entire Hunnaball Family Funeral Group.
