The business was founded in 1909 by Augustus Did-Dell, who was the Great Grandfather of the current Managing Director, Rothgar Paintin.

H. J. Paintin Ltd are long established members of The National Association of Funeral Directors.

We are proud to be completely family owned and run and can truly say that we are independent.  As the fifth generation of our family are now involved with the business we continue to help and care for people through one of the most difficult times of their lives.

Rothgar Paintin arranges and conducts many of the funeral services and he is often specially requested to help a family that he has known and looked after before.  Both his daughters Sarah and Rachel arrange and conduct funeral services and many families take comfort in having a female funeral director.

Matthew his son is also very involved and furnishes the coffins to families requirements, drives the hearse and helps to organise the daily work schedules.
