About E. C. Alderwick & Son Ltd

Funeral directors of distinction in the Bristol community for over 100 years.

Funeral directors of distinction in the Bristol community for over 100 years.

Originally established as Boulton Funeral Directors  in 1866 and was founded by Samuel Boulton.  The business then became Griffin and Sons in the 1870’s until it was taken over by Ewart Cobden Alderwick in 1945.

Ewart became a popular figure in and around the Kingswood area, playing football at a high level for Cadbury Heath.  Ewart’s only son Roy followed his father’s footsteps and also entered the family business.  He too became very well known in his home town, being interested in local Government in the 1960’s and being elected to stand on the local council for six years, two of which were as Chairman. The current principle directors Mr Philip Alderwick and Mr Derek Gunningham are the son and son-in-law of Roy Alderwick and are now at the helm of Bristol Funeral Directors. The fourth generation are also active members of the business.
