John Short & Son Funeral Directors

John Short & Son Ltd is a trusted funeral service that has been serving the Burntwood area since 1866.

You can rely on us


We personally know many of the families we have assisted during this time and only an independent family firm with its roots in the community can offer this understanding and commitment.

Dealing with the death of a loved one, whether that be a relative or a friend, can be an extremely challenging time for everybody involved. At John Short & Son, we try to make the grieving process as easy and stress-free as possible for you.

Our services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so you can always rely on us no matter what time of day it is and no matter how the big the problem may seem. 

We are available not only to the people of Burntwood as we cover all areas such as Brownhills, Lichfield and others.
