About Us

When you are in need of a 24 hour funeral service in Nottinghamshire, make A Wass Funeral Directors your first port of call today. A Wass is a small Independent family Funeral Directors at the heart of our community in Sutton In Ashfield.
A Wass was first established as Funeral Directors in 1903 and is the oldest firm in Sutton In Ashfield. It began in 1903 when Arthur Wass commenced as a funeral director, he had his own horses and performed his funerals in a Victorian horse drawn carriage, which is still used today.

In 1936 Mr Wass began to operate motorised vehicles to perform his funerals. In 1943 the founder of the business sadly passed away, it then passed through the family, with Arthur’s wife taking control of the business followed by William Arthur Wass and then David Wass.

It was at the time when David owned the business that he introduced another experienced and fully qualified local Funeral director Paul Brown, to help run the business as he suffered from ill health. It was the last wish of the Wass family that the business continued.
Paul now has full control over the business, moving it from strength to strength to ensure that families in need are provided with great care and dignity for their loved ones, helping them with all of their funeral arrangements during this distressing time.

Whether you want to know more about what we can offer you, or want to discover more about our competitive prices, give us a call today.

Our staff are highly trained and sympathetic, so you can be rest assured that you are in capable hands when you entrust our services.

Our aim is to keep our services high and our prices very competitive.
