Welcome to A W Hughes & Son

An Independent, Traditional, Family Funeral Company

A W Hughes and Son is a traditional independent family funeral company offering Traditional Funeral Services, and Eco-sensitive Burials in our beautiful green burial ground, Offa’s Orchard. We offer a full funeral service, including provision of memorial headstones. 

From our offices in the border communities of Presteigne and Gladestry we are proud to have served the region for three generations, bring years of expertise and knowledge, and a truly personal service, to you at your time of bereavement.

Traditional Funerals

Our aim has always been to conduct each funeral as if it were for a member of our own family.  We treat every bereaved family with compassion and understanding and every deceased person with dignity and respect. We retain a female operative to prepare and dress the ladies in our care.

Green Burials

Whilst always maintaining our traditional standards and values, we also keep up to date with the changing expectations of our clients.  In response to the demand for the more eco-sensitive alternatives we have established our own ‘green’ burial ground, ‘Offa’s Orchard’, adjacent to our funeral home at Gladestry.”


We offer a personalised memorial service featuring both natural or polished headstones. Simply share your preferences with us and we will arrange supply and installation.
