Company History

The Woods family name has long been associated with high-quality hand-crafted furniture, and Woods Funeral Service was established in 1878 as a sideline to the family’s established furniture retail business based in Dorchester.

The company began when our highly skilled in-house cabinet makers applied their knowledge of building quality wooden furniture to designing and hand-crafting elegant funeral coffins.

Since that time we have expanded our funeral product range and scope of services and have been operating as Woods Funeral Services, providing a complete, sensitive and sympathetic service, for more than three generations of the Woods family. We are extremely proud of our company’s rich heritage.
