Independent Family Funeral Directors

Welcome to David Hendy and Sons Funeral Services

Our Cornish family-run funeral homes are located in Camborne and Hayle, Cornwall, and have been providing care for the community’s loved ones for almost 40 years.

We know how important family is—we’ve been family-owned since we began our funeral home and have supported our clients going through loss with our upmost support, empathy, and care. We know this can be an incredibly difficult time for any family, and so at David Hendy Funeral Services, we’re here to help make it as worry-free as possible. Let our family take care of everything, so you can focus on spending time with and looking after yours.

Independent Funeral Directors – Why We’re Different

We pride ourselves on our independence. While many originally family-owned businesses in Cornwall are now owned by much larger umbrella companies, we’ve kept ours independent. This means, you’re not dealing with group policies and businesses that might charge additional fees on top of your quote, but instead you’ll have a transparent service with clear quotes and no hidden extras. Additionally, when you choose David Hendy Funeral Services, you’re choosing a local Cornish family, who genuinely want to help their community and the people in it.

Your loved ones are in safe hands; David Hendy Funeral and Sons Services is a member of the National Federation of Funeral Directors, and SAIF – Independent Funeral Directors.

Prepaid Plans for your Funeral Arrangements

Some people want to plan ahead, to alleviate some of the stress and worry from their loved ones.

If you’re considering a pre-paid funeral plan, we offer a selection of options where you can decide the details so your family don’t have to. If you’d like to find out more, you can call and have a chat with one of our family team members, or visit one of our David Hendy Funeral Services offices in Camborne or Hayle.

If you’d like to talk to one of our team, please contact us here.

Peaceful Premises

Our founders, David and Jean, converted a former blacksmith’s workshop in Camborne themselves, to be the modern funeral home it is today. They chose every aspect of our design and worked tirelessly to create their vision, so our customers would feel welcome and accommodated when they needed to visit. We want to cater for everyone, so we’ve made sure we have accessibility for all. We also have a private chapel of rest, an arranging room, and office.

At the most difficult time for us as a family, David Hendy and Sons really helped us through it with compassion. Caleb from our first meeting was empathic and understanding and guided us through everything seamlessly. Our Thanksgiving Service was beautiful and nothing was too much trouble for Caleb. I did not have to worry about anything it took the pressure off us. We really did feel so supported. Our visits to the chapel of rest were so peaceful, always felt welcomed with warm compassion. I would definitely recommend David Hendy and Sons - a lovely family run business Thankyou

At a very dark time for my family, Hendy's were there with an unrivalled level of professionalism and compassion. We received a first class service every step of the way and perhaps the biggest compliment I can pay is that we will not be looking anywhere else in the future as there is no-one I would trust more to guide us through losing a loved one.

What a wonderful team they are at David Hendy. My dealings were with Caleb who is a credit to the business and profession. He was so kind, generous and thoughtful in all of my dealings with him, nothing was too much trouble. Messages or emails were always replied to quickly. Everything went as it should thanks to the work put in by Caleb and his team. Never having arranged a funeral before, I must have asked a multitude of questions but every one was answered with patience and compassion. Help was always offered, even with things they weren’t organising for us such as the flowers. They did organise the Orders of Service and Book of Condolence both of which I was very happy with and it made it so much easier and less stressful being able to do it through them. They couldn’t have done any more to ease the strain of what was inherently a very emotional and sad time. Thank you Caleb and David Hendy’s.

We will never be able to thank Caleb and everyone at David Hendy Funeral Services enough for the support given during the sad loss of Dorothy Fisher. The kindness, thoughtfulness, advice, before, during and following the funeral service was given with compassion,dignity, respect and professionalism. Thank you so much for looking after Dorothy, we will never forget your kindness.

Caleb organised my Mother's funeral impeccably. Our initial visit with him to make arrangements was as pleasure in the circumstances and he kept me up to date with the arrangements all the way through. The service itself was faultless and he went to great lengths to provide personal touches that we hadn't thought about. He made a very sad event one with very pleasant memories for all those who attended.

We couldn't have asked for better service. We were looked after by Caleb (who I believe is third generation in this family run business) all the way through, from the planning, to the funeral itself. His knowledge and advice were very gratefully received and he made all the arrangements and dealt with all the formalities which took a lot of stress away from us at a difficult time. He went above and beyond my expectations and even rang the night before the funeral to make sure we were ok. A very lovely young man who was very caring and professional. I highly recommend David Hendy Funeral Services for piece of mind when dealing with funeral arrangements of a loved one.

Caleb and his team handled the arrangements for my Dad's funeral with kindess, compassion and efficiency. We found Caleb to be extremely professional, with great emotional intelligence regarding how to approach each conversation and member of the family. No matter how busy he might have been, the level of service we received made it seem like we were his sole focus. Nothing was too much trouble and nothing felt rushed or stressful. The service itself was beautiful. I really cannot recommend them highly enough.

I cannot recommend Caleb and his team highly enough. From my initial enquiry to post service support everyone has been thoroughly attentive, empathetic and professional in their approach and helped my sister and myself immensely through our period of grief.

David Hendy looked after my father in 2005 and my mother in 2023. Our family was treated with the utmost care, respect and understanding during both occasions. They made difficult situations a lot easier to cope with because of their professionalism and humanity. We were treated not as customers, but as people. They really do care and are lovely people. Nothing was too much trouble and I would not hesitate to recommend them in your time of need.
