At Thomas Bragg & Sons Funeral Directors, we have been looking after local families for more than 140 years. ‘Thomas Bragg, Builders and Funeral Directors of Shirley’ was founded in 1869, as one of a number of local trades then run by the Bragg family. The highest standards of service continued over the years, as the company served families throughout Solihull and the West Midlands.
In 1940, half the family farm was requisitioned to build the BSA munitions factory – now Marshall Lake retail park. After the war, the business continued to expand, with our second branch opening in Knowle in 2008.
Starting out with one branch in Shirley, the business expanded to open a second branch in Knowle. Both branches serve the city of Birmingham, Solihull and communities from surrounding villages and towns.
As a long-established funeral director in Solihull, Thomas Bragg & Sons Funeral Directors offers experience and compassion. Our skilled staff will guide you through the funeral planning process and help to organise a unique and personalised funeral to mark and celebrate the life of your loved one.
With a variety of funeral styles and options, plus our transparent pricing policy, we are confident we can meet the needs of every faith and family.
Thomas Bragg & Sons Funeral Directors also offers an affordable prepaid funeral plan called Choice. Our plan provides an opportunity to arrange and pay for a funeral in advance, protecting your family from rising costs and uncertainty about your wishes.
We are a member of the National Association of Funeral Directors, meaning the team at Thomas Bragg & Sons Funeral Directors adhere to important industry standards and are equipped with excellent knowledge to deliver the best service possible.
Each month our aim is to support our local community, charities and causes to play an active role in our community. Some of the charities we support include Birmingham Children’s Hospital and The Knowle Society.
If you would like to discuss planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, we can meet you at our Knowle or Shirley branch or we can arrange a home visit. Our teams are obtainable by phone 24 hours a day, so if you need support please don’t hesitate to call your local branch.
