Hello and welcome to Heart & Soul Funerals, award-winning independent funeral directors and funeral celebrants in Buckfastleigh and Totnes, Devon. Simon, Jane, Birte and Hannah are ready to care for you and your family.
To have someone close to you die is a profound life event; their absence changes everything. You may be feeling shaky, exhausted, or shocked and you will need someone who can listen and respond to your needs with kindness and attention, who can assist you and make the seemingly huge tasks ahead much easier and less complicated. Our watchwords are Gentle, Thoughtful and Inclusive.
Heart & Soul Funerals (formerly Green Fuse Funerals), offers the extensive range of funeral services you may expect from a modern, family funeral directing company. We help families across an area including Exeter, Torbay, Ivybridge and Plymouth, South Devon and the South Hams. Why choose us
We offer good value as well as an exceptional level of care. You will find all our pricing competitive and transparent without any compromise on quality.
We are proud to be awarded Fair Funerals Funeral Director Of The Month for April 2017 which means we are open about costs and try to ensure you have an affordable funeral. We charge our fees, and everything else we buy or book for you at cost. There are no hidden profits.

“Thank you so much, Simon, for all the thoughtful and kind attention you, Lilah and Hannah gave us as we prepared for Dad’s funeral. I particularly appreciated:
- Lilah’s respectful kindness when she came to collect Dad and when we sat with him at Riverstone;
- The text messages from you, which felt very holding;
- The time you gave us to help prepare for the ceremony;
- The steady presence you provided as you gently steered us through the ceremony;
- Being given the candle afterwards which I often light;
- And not least, your sense of humour!
With deepest gratitude and appreciation.” Jude Bishop
