Staffords Funeral Directors

Bereavement is not bound by the 9-to-5 dictates of a corporate culture. As a family firm, we at Stafford’s understand and respect this. Your call is not just important to us; it is also your immediate connection to a source of human and professional help at your hour of need. And whether that hour is 4am or 4pm, you will never find yourself trying to speak to a machine.

As one of Ireland’s foremost Funeral Directors, Stafford’s continues to evolve as a strong professional funeral service; sophisticated, professional and modern, yet crucially retaining the core values of a traditional family firm; where care, concern, courtesy and personal involvement are laid out as the enduring elements underpinning this longstanding undertakers, proudly serving Dubliners for over four generations.

Like the old 1940’s photograph of Stafford’s North Strand premises, we are still based at this historical location, and the traditional logo above the door, ‘Funerals Completely Furnished’, still rings as true today as the bells that toll in multi-denominational harmony between St Agatha’s and the North Strand Parish, our neighbouring Catholic and Church of Ireland places of worship.

Under the current directorship of Jonathan Stafford, and in keeping with a rapidly expanding capital city, Stafford’s now radiates outwards from the North Strand to our new Funeral Home in North Frederick Street serving the people of Dublin 1, our ideally  situated premises in Maypark on the Malahide Rd, serving the people of Donnycarney, Clontarf, Howth, Raheny and Coolock, and continuing to develop into a spacious new Portmarnock location which will benefit the coastal areas of Portmarnock, Baldoyle, Malahide and beyond.

Ever mindful of how difficult it is for a family to entrust the care of their departed loved ones during a time of intense grief, we at Stafford’s endeavour to provide a service stamped with all the expert skill and professional care that will comfort the family, alleviate the stress and pay respectful tribute to the departed. Stafford’s have been applying this high level of care for generations.

At Stafford’s, the arrangements for the service of your dearly departed will be looked after with the utmost dignity and care. While we cannot eradicate the grief associated with bereavement, we can certainly take all the stress out of this difficult time; at Stafford’s you’ll find succour and reassurance in the sensitive calm counsel available to you on the many aspects of directing the funeral of your loved one.

From the outset, you’ll have the full support of a dedicated team of experts, who’ll guide you through this difficult process without being obtrusive. This ensures that the family is fully involved at every level to provide a very personal custom designed funeral tailored to your needs. At the same time, the family can rest assured that at any time of day or night, they can rely on Stafford’s to help with any requirements.

Here are just some examples of how we continue to help you
  • 24 hour service, 365 days a year.
  • Attention to detail. No detail is considered too small – we apply the same level of care to the newspaper notice as we do to the quality of the limousine cars we provide for your family.
  • Phone Stafford’s and you will always find a helpful voice on the other end of your call, you will never be connected to a machine.
  • Our Directors will call to your home to arrange a funeral, if you wish us to do so.

In terms of cost, the client sets the tone; we offer such a wide selection of options that the customer can select the elements that make up an entire funeral to dovetail with their budget – funerals at a cost depending on you.

All of Stafford’s Funeral Homes were recently refurbished to the highest standards. We have a large selection of tastefully decorated funeral chapels, custom-designed ambience to provide privacy and peace; varying in size depending on your needs. Staffords can cater to any size funeral, where the comfort of your family is amply guaranteed.

Extra car parking facilities freely available on request; should you anticipate larger than average attendance, we can accommodate you with many options.
