The town of Devizes in Wiltshire has a rich history as a notable market town. D.J. Bewley are proud to be the local independent Devizes funeral directors, caring for the bereaved and laying the town’s departed to rest with dignity, sympathy and sincerity.
We have a Devizes branch office for our funeral directors’ service at 64 New Park Street, SN10 1DP (on the A361 route through the town centre, diagonally opposite St Mary’s Church). Here we welcome bereaved families to advise and assist with funeral arrangements for their loved ones in Devizes during opening hours, 10am to 3pm Monday to Friday. Alternatively, you can call us on 01380 728008 to schedule an appointment for our representative to come to visit you at home at your convenience. We also operate a 24-hour telephone service for anyone who needs consolation or has queries about dealing with and coping with death in Devizes.
Our local D.J. Bewley office arranges cremations and burials in Devizes and the suburbs of Hartmoor, Jump Farm, Nursteed, Roundway, Southbroom and Wick. We also cater for the deceased and their families in the nearby villages in the Vale of Pewsey, such as All Cannings, Bratton, Bromham, Charlton, Cherhill, Edington, Enford, Erlestoke, Etchilhampton, Heddington, Poulshot, Stert and Yatesbury.
Devizes has nearly 500 listed buildings, so it is not surprising to learn that it has a very old cemetery, dating from 1878. The Devizes Town Council cemetery on the north side of the Kennet and Avon canal – with its entrance on the junction of Rotherstone and Couch Lane – is extensive and well-kept, set between groves of trees.
We can arrange for burials or the interment of cremated remains in the Devizes town cemetery, or in any burial ground in the area. We also arrange cremations at West Wiltshire Crematorium, or “green” natural and woodland interments if requested.

Many wise people – young and old – are realising that investing in a pre-paid funeral plan relieves the burden on those who are eventually left behind, and also gives allows them the freedom and peace of mind of being able to make advance arrangements for their own funeral, in accordance with their wishes.
D.J. Bewley offer a range of funeral plans backed by one of the UK’s largest and most trusted providers, Golden Charter. You can pay a one-off fee in advance for your future funeral, or make low-cost instalments – the choice is yours.
