All about us

John Gill and David Eales went into partnership in 1977 and acquired the Funeral Directing arm of Jacksons in 1978, looking after over 60 funerals a year.

Both David Eales and John Gill continued to look after funerals in Buckfastleigh up until their retirement in May 2013. They are both well known members of the community.

“We have a close relationship with Buckfast Abbey and have taken care of the funerals of a number of monks.”

The premises was constructed by David Eales in 1999, but only consisted of a Chapel of Rest and Mortuary. Major refurbishments have since taken place in June 2013.
