Our History

J.W. & J. Mettam was established in 1899 by the two Mettam brothers. However J.W. Mettam left the firm and became a Methodist Minister in America where he remained for the rest of his life.

J. Mettam (Jim) carried on the business as shop fitters, joiners, timber merchants and undertakers. He also taught woodwork part time at both Lady Manners and St Anselm’s schools in Bakewell.

Bereavement is a time when careful guidance and advice is needed most, a time to express personal wishes and to make sure that every detail has been carefully considered and attended to. Following a death, certain practical steps need to be taken at an early stage, normally when family and close friends are suffering from shock and emotional stress. Therefore, the professional guidance and advice that we, as Funeral Directors, can offer is often a comfort, which is available 24 hours a day.
