Welcome to G & H Seamer
G & H Seamer are an independent, family run Funeral Directors established in 1903. The business has remained in the family since then and we continue to offer a sensitive and dignified service to Sandy and the surrounding villages as we have from the beginning.
In February 1903 Alfred Seamer took over the funeral and joinery business from the Withey Family after working for them for 23 years. He then handed the business over to his sons George and Harry who registered the company as G & H Seamer. Jim Seamer (Jim’s father) took over from his brothers Harry and George and then Jim began working at the company from the age of sixteen taking over the running of the business in 1976 and continuing to lead funerals today

Thank you so much for the wonderful service you gave us following my Wife’s passing, the level of care and attention to detail was second to none and nothing was too much trouble for you. I was very impressed by the way you conducted the conveyance of my Wife all the way to our West Country home and especially the respect and courtesy you showed to her and us all when ‘walking’ the Hearse from the family home and through our home village of Badminton. I would highly recommend you to anyone who is in need of your excellent services.
Thank you all once again."
