Welcome to AJ Lloyd Funeral Directors

What to expect from us

At AJ Lloyd Funeral Directors Coventry, we perform a unique and indispensable role in society. It is a role part professional and part vocation.
Our Funeral Directors are always available in time of need. We provide emotional support, expert and practical advice.

We will listen to you, the bereaved, as you decide what sort of funeral you want for your loved one.
We will be honest with you and inform you of the options available and any grants that you may be entitled to.

Our Funeral Homes in both Allesley and Keresley are open for you to visit. If this is inconvenient then we can arrange for a home visit if you prefer. No one knows when they will suffer the loss of a loved one.
As your Funeral Director we will be there to provide support, guidance and comfort.

We have been helping and supporting families with bereavement by offering a more personal approach to funeral directing.
That is that we incorporate ‘traditional values, with a modern approach’.

We aim to arrange a funeral with a date and time you have in mind. We can normally arrange a time within ten working days this can be a full Church Service, Catholic Mass or a simple cremation service. We will not keep you waiting unnecessarily.

However, sometimes it is best to wait for family members to return from prearranged journeys so funeral times can be longer, but this is your choice.


We guarantee that:

  • The bereaved person or family will have our full personal attention, 24 hrs per day;
  • We will advise on all aspects of the funeral arrangements, including the legal and administrative details;
  • We will co-ordinate and carry out the funeral arrangements as requested or as agreed;
  • We will treat the deceased with respect and dignity and show sensitivity towards those who grieve;
  • We will perform our services efficiently, unobtrusively and to the highest professional standards

Once contacted, we will help and guide you through all the funeral arrangements.
We offer a wide choice of services which can be tailored to the needs and requirements of each individual.

All arrangements can be carried out in the comfort of your own home or at one of funeral homes in Allesley or Keresley.


The Government’s lockdown guidance for England, which becomes law on Wednesday 6 January (but which the Prime Minister said should be followed immediately), confirms that mourners can continue to attend funeral services in England up to the venue’s COVID-secure capacity – and subject to a maximum of 30 people.

Linked events such as ritual washing and funeral receptions can go ahead with up to six people. This remains unchanged for those areas previously in Tier 4 – but now applies across the whole of England.

Staff working at the funeral service or linked event are not included in the numbers.
