About Us

William Cotton & Sons Ltd. is a privately owned and operated 3rd generation family business serving Feilding and districts. Originally established in 1930 by William & Rachel Cotton, the company has always been owned by the Cotton family with a long and proud history of caring for the community.

William and Rachel had many members of the family assisting with the funeral home and their sons Norman and Walter became the primary funeral directors.

As in most family businesses Normans wife Jeanette then began working in the office side of the business, then leading on to become a funeral director when females became accepted funeral directors.  Their eldest son, Shane joined the family business in 1992.  Shane has since gone on to be in the first group of embalmers/funeral directors to achieve the National Diploma in Funeral Services.

Chapel and Reception Lounge

Our modern fully air conditioned chapel is tastefully decorated, and well equipped to cater for both large and small funerals with a seating capacity of up to 120 people.

The Chapel can be used for any type of service the family may wish, either religious or non-religious. Using our Chapel in no way dictates the type of service the family may wish to have. The family can still choose the funeral of their choice.

We have a modern public address and sound system from which we are able to play the families choice of music. Photo tributes can be projected onto a wide screen. Our recording facilities allow us to audio and/or video the funeral service, and a closed circuit TV system allows the service to overflow to the adjoining reception lounge if required.
