About Drakes of Torbay Funeral Service
Drakes of Torbay Funeral Service was founded in 1983. We recognise how important it is to be at the heart of our local Torquay, Devon community.
The team at our Torquay funeral home will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one. We have our own service venue on-site.
Here at Drakes of Torbay Funeral Service we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.
If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
Meet the Team
What you like best about your role?
I like being able to help people during their time of need.
Have you done any other roles in the funeral profession?
I began working at a young age with my family who ran a funeral business, starting with the cleaning and gradually working through a variety of different roles to become a Funeral Director.
Proudest moment at work
I am proud of all the services that I arrange and conduct.
Depending on the season it will be cricket or rugby and of course the end of match pint – whether I am celebrating or commiserating.
We take pride in everything we do. Our aim is that everyone who works for Funeral Partners shares our values.
Our business exists to help the bereaved to make fitting arrangements for their loved one’s last journey and to provide lasting memories for family and friends.
We do this with a positive, caring and understanding approach.
Respect for everyone
We value diversity and treat everyone with the same respect, courtesy and dignity.
We are a professional organisation and we strive to achieve the highest possible standards in everything we do and to improve upon these standards continuously.
We accept responsibility for our actions both as a company and as individuals.
We believe that we can only achieve our goals by working together in partnership with client families, suppliers and our employees.
