“Our Family Taking Care Of Your Family”

W.C. Littleproud and Son was formed back in the 1930's by the late William Charles Littleproud. William’s trade was originally a wheelwright and carpenter before becoming a builder and undertaker. In 1960 Michael joined his father in the family business.

In the late 1980’s the building business ended allowing Michael to concentrate on the funeral business which had grown substantially over the previous 2 decades. In 1993 William’s grandson Paul followed in the family footsteps by giving up a career in the motor trade to join his father Michael - taking the company into it's third generation.

Paul is now responsible for the day to day running of the business which over the years has
become one of the leading funeral companies in Norfolk renowned for its personal, professional and caring service.

As an independent family concern we are able to offer a complete, traditional service at a reasonable cost. With almost 80 years of experience and commitment behind us we can ensure that no matter how simple or complex the arrangements, they will be dealt with in a dignified and efficient manner. When our services are required, we can guarantee immediate, personal attention.

Our offices and Chapel of Rest are situated in the quiet village of Bradenham which is approximately six miles from East Dereham, Swaffham and Watton.

In 2002 our premises underwent a major refurbishment which included new offices, Chapel of Rest and mortuary and also complies with the latest regulations for disabled facilities & access.

Our services range from a basic simple funeral to a Victorian service with horse drawn hearse, a 'Green' Burial in a woodland cemetery or a non-religious ‘civil’ service.

As a family owned and run business we are able to offer a far more personal service than the larger groups and at a more reasonable price.

It is advisable when contacting a Funeral Director to enquire as to whether or not they are a family business or part of a group. Many companies throughout Norfolk trade under a family name but are actually owned by the Co-Operative funeral chain or other large national consortiums.

As members of the National Association of Funeral Directors and National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors we abide by their strict Code of Practice. We are happy to provide copies of this Code of Practice upon request.
