Southgate & Roberts Funeral Directors

18-20 St. Matthews Street, Ipswich, IP1 3EU

Matt Southgate (Managing Director)

I have been involved in the funeral service industry for over 20 years. I feel incredibly privileged and honoured to be working in a profession I passionately care about. Having worked for one of the largest funeral service providers, I felt frustrated in an environment where profit was put before people. Now I am able to ensure families have the choice to make their loved one’s funeral exactly how they want it, irrespective of cost, and to offer as much help and guidance as needed at one of the most difficult times in their lives.

Liam Roberts Dip FD, Dip CFSMA, MBIFD

I have worked within the funeral service industry since 1986 and have been assisting the bereaved families of Ipswich since 1996. There are very few more privileged positions of trust, than that of caring for someone`s loved one and their family, in order to support and advise them during such an important time of need. Now working alongside Matt, I am so pleased to be able to devote all my passion and knowledge, to offering the very best possible standards of care and professionalism to the bereaved families of Ipswich.
