Who We Are
Bewley & Merrett is an independent, family-run, firm of funeral directors that has served the local community for over a century.
H. Merrett Funeral Directors, the original firm, can trace its history back to 1890 when it combined the business of building with the arranging of funerals for the community of Corsham.
Denis and Yvonne Bewley took ownership of H. Merrett Funeral Directors in 1986 and began a tradition that has seen three generations of the Bewley family care for the community. Their son Jonathon and his wife Kate joined the firm at the same time and in turn their son Aaron followed in their footsteps in 2001.
Jonathon and Aaron soon expanded their services and facilities to the public of Melksham and Chippenham when they opened in 2003 and 2006 respectively, with new offices and private chapels of rest in each town.
Today, while Jonathon and Kate still remain actively involved, Aaron has taken on the responsibility of leading the firm with his wife Amber.
Aaron and his wife Amber are steeped in the traditions of the family business and play an active part in the local community and in supporting local charities.
They are collectively committed to providing a caring and sensitive service to the bereaved and their loved ones for many years to come, while embracing new ways of meeting the changing needs of the local community.
