Salisbury House, St Judes, Plymouth
Plymouth Funeral Directors Walter C. Parson are a family business established in 1842. It has, either by inheritance or acquisition, remained in the family over seven generations.
We strive to deliver a first class service, one which would only be acceptable to a member of our own family. We believe, maintaining this strong ethos through our staff and by training them to the highest standards of the profession, we are able to consistently deliver this service to our clients.
In 1951 the whole business was moved to this address in the centre of Plymouth, where Walter and Beryl Parson used part as the family home. Situated on the edge of the city centre, Salisbury House has retained its original character, in keeping with its surroundings and also houses our School of Funeral Directing.
David Parslow and Vikki Macneill are the resident Funeral Directors at the St Judes and Plymstock offices, and are always on hand to offer advice with no obligation.
Our St Judes office serves Plymouth City Centre, Peverell, Mannamead, Hartley, Efford, Stoke, Devonport, Keyham, Milehouse and the surrounding areas.
