Exeter Funeral Directors Walter C. Parson are a family business established in 1842. It has, either by inheritance or acquisition, remained in the family over seven generations.

We strive to deliver a first class service, one which would only be acceptable to a member of our own family. We believe, maintaining this strong ethos through our staff and by training them to the highest standards of the profession, we are able to consistently deliver this service to our clients.

Our Exeter office, located on Topsham Road, has been completely refurbished to offer the people of Exeter professional care, competitive prices and a seamless service.

We provide a service to be proud of in Exeter, Topsham, Exmouth, Crediton and the surrounding areas.
