Welcome to Cathedral Funeral Services

Owned by Patrick Walesby and Malcolm Scobie.

A member of the


Hereford Cathedral Services can be found at 55 St Owen Street. We are only one minute walk from both the Town Hall and the Shire Hall, three minutes walk from Hereford Cathedral and one minute from the Registrar's Office in the Town Hall.

As a leading, independent funeral parlour we provide:  Pre-Payment Plans, Headstones, Flowers, Black Horse Drawn Carriages, Custom Built Coffins, Painted or American Style Caskets.


We undertake services for all religious denominations and for those of no faith.


We offer advice and assistance to those who need help when funds are not readily available.


Patrick Walesby and Malcolm Scobie are the proprietors of Cathedral Funeral Services (Hereford) Limited. Our Funeral Home is independent of any major funeral corporations and Patrick Walesby is the only fully elected member of The National Society of Independent Funeral Directors in the whole of Herefordshire.


We welcome visitors to our premises to view the Chapel of Rest which can seat fifteen people comfortably. (The Chapel is dedicated to St Benedict and St Ethelbert King and Martyr.) You may choose to hold a small private service instead of booking a church or rushing to arrange your service at the Crematorium. The Chapel can also be used by people who do not wish to hold a religious service and who wish to say farewell to loved ones in their own personal way.
