About Us
We are family based, independent funeral directors

As a family company, we offer a personal service and are here to help and support you through the practicalities of laying a loved one to rest. We have not forgotten that it is the personal touch that our clients need, we genuinely care and will be there whenever you may need us, even once the funeral has passed. We will be pleased to complete any necessary forms for you, or with you, and our personal service will ensure that you receive every assistance with your decisions and arrangements.

The Tender Touch was established in 2008, in 2009 we were contracted to the Medway Coroner. Since 2012 we held a contract with Great Ormond Street, Kings College Hospital and Maudsley Hospital.

The Tender Touch is owned and run by husband and wife, Paul and Lorraine Hopper.

Home from Home

The Tender Touch are a family run independent funeral directors with branches in Bexley, Gravesend, Orpington and Plumstead. We have designed each of our branches to feel like a home from home, however, if you would prefer we can come to your home and make all the necessary arrangements at a time convenient to you and your family. Each of our branches have a lounge area, an arrangement room and a private chapel of rest.

Independently Run

Our ethos is to bring the independent run funeral directors back into the community, we felt that this has been lost due to the expansion of large corporations and their high costs. We have tailored packages that are affordable to clients that may be on low income, without compromising on the quality, care and dignity you and your loved ones receive.
