M. Lucking & Sons have served Chelmsford, Essex and the surrounding area as Funeral Directors for over 360 years. As an independent family owned business we are able to offer personal and sympathetic guidance through all the formalities of arranging the funeral for a loved one, either at our offices, or in the comfort of the family home. We Are Only A Phone Call Away Being freely available 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. The bereaved may contact us at any time for assistance and advice. As Chelmsford, Essex is where we live and work we have a long term commitment to our community and appreciate local customs, traditions and expectations. As members of the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors we choose to do business with people we know and trust, supporting local businesses, charities and organisations. We are the only Funeral Directors, now remaining in the area, who offer a large range of coffins and caskets made to exacting standards in our workshop, to our clients\' individual requirements, an important fact in these days of \'mass production\'. All funerals are carried out in a traditional and dignified manner by the use of modern Hearses and Limousines.
As a family we would like to thank Darren and everyone at Luckings for their support and assistance during our difficult time. Darren was patient and kind, answering any questions we had and guiding us through what was to us an unknown situation. He took all the stress away and ensured that the arrangements ran seamlessly which was such a comfort to us. it was a comfort to us to know that our loved one was being well looked after by Darren and the team at Luckings. Thank you.
Lucking and sons were wonderful, gave us all the information we needed and time to think and make decisions. Roy was always at the end of the phone or email to help with any questions we had.
Daren and Roy are masters of their trade. Having dealt with them over a two year period burying both my parents, I have to thank them for their help and understanding at such distressing times. Their effort in providing the services for the family and their honour and respect to the departed is something I have not experienced, seen or heard spoken about from any other funeral director in the area (and I am increasingly attending such events). As much as we think the funeral is about the dead, I felt that Daren and Roy gave support to me and my family removing a lot of stress to the living.
I would not hesitate to recommend M Luckings and Sons to anyone requiring a funeral director for a relative or friend.
It was fortunately my first experience visiting a Funeral Director, yet from the onset, Darren was incredibly quick to put me at ease and explain the process extremely calmly and compassionately with me. We had many encounters until the funeral and my family and I came to know Darren and his team to be sincerely respectful, incredibly knowledgable and, most importantly genuinely caring. Obviously, over their hundreds of years in the business, the family have grown into a truly amazing, and formidable team; and a true credit to the industry. I cannot possibly recommend M Luckings and Sons more highly.
We used M Lucking and sons for my brothers funeral and dealt with Roy from start to finish.
Roy made the process beautiful from the initial meet to introducing us to Guy who held the service for us which was also very good and touching.
The whole process was held in the most professional manner and we cannot thank the team enough for helping us through these tough times.
From our first contact with Roy Palmer - we knew we were in very safe hands. He guided and supported us very professionally throughout everything. He was easy to talk to and very efficient and he made what could have been a very difficult time much easier. Many Thanks Roy.
We lost my mum is July 2018. I knew that she and dad had wanted to use Lucking's but due to her earlier than expected death we had not had a chance to ask them. Roy contacted me as the hospice had contacted him and although this was not the best of circumstances and I had no experience of arranging a funeral he advised me, took charge where needed and made me feel supported. This continued all the way to the funeral. The day had respect, empathy and organisation. I could not have wished for more. Thank you to the whole team for making it the best it could have been.
Following my mother's death in February I chose M Lucking as the funeral directors, initially through the recommendation of a friend, but then I remembered that they had dealt with my father's funeral back in 2006. As an only child and, as it turned out, the only executor, I had to deal with everything and had never arranged a funeral myself before so it all seemed very daunting. I have to say that from the outset Roy at Luckings was extremely helpful and sympathetic. He guided me through the whole process and made it all very easy - from finding a priest to conduct the service to suggesting a florist for the flowers. Whether it was the printing of the service sheet or finding the right music for the funeral, help and support was there - which was really appreciated at a difficult time. The fact that they are in Chelmsford and I live in Eastbourne did not present a problem and we were able to deal with everything by phone and email. On the day itself Darren and his team played their part in the dignified way that you would expect. I liked the family feel that the firm has, they have centuries of experience, and I never once felt pushed into having something that I didn't want or steered towards the most expensive coffin, etc, as some funeral directors are prone to do. So I would certainly recommend them.
When Mum passed away 7 years ago we had M Lucking and Sons as our Funeral Directors and they were fantastic. So when my husband passed away in January we (myself and my children) had no hesitation in contacting them again. Darren was so understanding and patient and answered all my queries. The day of the Funeral was made easier as Darren had made sure that everything was sorted and we had nothing to worry over. Thank you Darren and The Team for all your care and attention.
My brother and I had planned to visit a couple of funeral directors to make an informed comparison but, following our initial meeting with Darren, it was a simple decision for us to use Luckings. His sympathetic and straightforward manner put us immediately at ease and we felt that we were in receipt of a very personal and efficient service at every subsequent stage, through to the funeral itself then afterwards with arrangements for our mother's gravestone. We cannot recommend this company highly enough. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
This is a family run business. They showed care, compassion and consideration to us and helped us through every step of the process. Making a difficult time with lots of decisions which need to be made quickly a lot more manageable. When we had any questions or queries they were at the end of the phone and extremely helpful.
I would completely recommend this company.
I would highly recommend M Lucking and Sons
It was the first time I ever had to arrange a cremation and it was for my mum.
I choose Lucking and Sons because they're a family business with great reviews, I was not disappointed, they were great, really helpful and talked me through everything.
On the actual day of the cremation everything went perfectly and they were so respectful.
My mum would have been very happy with her send off.
Thank you to all at Lucking and Sons
We had previously used M Lucking and Sons for my mother's funeral 10 years ago. This time, in June, we chose them again for my father's funeral. On both occasions, their service was excellent. The guidance and advice given in planning the funeral was just right; the attention to detail, knowledge and organisation superb. On the day, we felt well-informed, supported and cared for. Thank you.
I recently had to arrange my late Aunts funeral. She passed away at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford,not an area that I know as I live some 90 miles away in Buckinghamshire at least two hours round the M25/A12 !!!
I needed to make the funeral arrangements by telephone and by as few journeys as possible, from the minute I called M Lucking and Sons and spoke to Roy the was response was one of yes can do and nothing was to much trouble every thing was sorted with kindness and efficiency which made a very stressful time a lot easier.
On the day of the funeral Darren looked after us well with kindness and compassion. My wife and I felt that at all times we were their only clients.
I have no hesitation in recommending the services of M Luckin and Sons
This family run business more then held up to the standards, care and attention to detail in every aspect of the funeral arrangements process. It was all that we could hope for when i recently lost my husband, All staff worked as a team, from the first call to handling the horse drawn coffin, to the very last requirement. They were always ready to give guidance and support to all members of the family and friends alike, but not to intrude. A great family firm and would certainly recommend them without any hesatation. Prices were also fair.
