Our Services

Look to the services from C.L. Rescorla & Son during this difficult time. Arranging funerals and memorial services, we assist you with the administration of legal paperwork, liaising with doctors, and the organisation of different types of funerals such as religious and secular.


Legal Requirements

Legal requirements feature the needs of the coroner as well as the registration. We give you all the information you need so you don’t have to worry about anything else, such as the materials you need to bring with you or have to hand when you speak with us.

Give your thanks to anyone who contributed before, during, or after the funeral in any way. Whatever you would like to say in your acknowledgement is personal to you, and will express your gratitude to acknowledge those who have showed you and your family compassion.

About Us

C.L. Rescorla and Son are third generation funeral directors, based in St Columb. Offering funeral services throughout the UK, we have been established locally since 1926 and are currently operated by Colin and his wife, Susan. With a private chapel on site, you can trust us to arrange every aspect of a funeral in the privacy and comfort of your own home. You may also call at our office if you prefer. Our priority is to give you a helping hand during this difficult time, by providing complete funeral arrangements and helping you through every step of the way.

Starting as village carpenters and wheelwrights, we served all the needs of the local community using wood to construct quality coffins. Now, as C.L. Rescorla & Son, we have grown as local funeral directors you can trust, associated with NAFD™ (National Association of Funeral Directors) and SAIF.

Giving You Peace of Mind

A death in the family raises many questions, such as:

  • What Do I Do First? 
  • How Do I Register a Death? 
  • Why is the Coroner Involved? 
  • Burial or Cremation?
  • Church, Chapel, or Non-Religious?
  • What Type of Coffin?
  • Flowers and Music?
  • How and When Do We Pay?
  • How Much Will It Cost?

Why C.L. Rescorla & Son?



The Rescorlas have been serving local families for more than 90 years. Colin, is part of the third generation to offer compassionate care.



We work personally with you, providing an individual service from the first call to the funeral itself.
