About Todmorden Funeral Service

The owner of Todmorden Funeral Service, Judith Brandwood, is a fully qualified funeral director and is a member of the three main funeral trade associations, NAFD, BIFD and as an independent funeral director SAIF. Judith has been serving the people of the Calder Valley as a funeral arranger from 2002 and as a funeral director since 2005.

Before becoming a funeral director, Judith was the proprietor of another local business “The Pet Shop”. A long standing member of St John Ambulance for many years, Judith is a familiar face around Todmorden, a true Todmordian who was born and bred in the town.

Todmorden Funeral Service has been operating for 3 years, in 2014 Judith purchased premises at 30 Halifax Road in the very heart of Todmorden. The premises of Todmorden Funeral Service (TFS) have been fully renovated and the business successfully opened here in November 2014. Many people will remember the building as the “Milky Way Café” and more recently as “B’DZ”. The décor of Todmorden Funeral Service is modern but tasteful. As well as a comfortable reception room where Judith meets with families, there is also a dedicated service chapel and private rooms where families can spend time with their loved ones.
