Stockman & Loram

The Family Run Funeral Service

Modern or traditional, religious or non religious, simple or elaborate, when it comes to providing a funeral service for your loved one, you can do no better than appointing Stockman & Loram as your preferred funeral director.

We pride ourselves on providing a caring and professional service that is individually-tailored to every family’s wishes and needs. We are dedicated to delivering our very best when it comes to funeral services, an attribute that has gained us an excellent local reputation as Torbay’s leading family run funeral service.

Stockman & Loram offer the perfect blend of the traditional and modern. With Seb & Dom Loram, the fourth generation of the family now running the business, we are firmly-rooted in the traditions of the funeral industry and uphold those important traditional values, but also realise that this is the 21st century. We have moved with the times, whilst respecting the previous generations of our family’s values and standards.

Our family has been providing a truly outstanding service to Torbay and south Devon for a very long time. We not only offer our unrivalled level of personal care and attention throughout south Devon, but can also arrange the repatriation or funeral of your loved one to place of rest away from this area if required, either within the UK or overseas.

We have three well appointed chapels of rest across Torbay, with premises in Preston, Churston Broadway and Brixham.  Our pristine fleet of luxurious hearses and limousines provide your loved one, family and friends with the respect and dignity that the day demands.

However if you require a more relaxed, lower cost and low-key service our Service Chapels can provide you with an intimate and private alternative to the local crematoriums.

A member of our family or team is always available to speak with you, via telephone, at our offices, or in the privacy of your own home. We sincerely hope that you find the information you require on our website. However, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our family would be honoured to look after your family at this time of need.

Yours faithfully,

The Loram Family & Staff

Non Religious Funerals


Direct Cremation

(No Service Cremation from £1,350)

In addition to our more comprehensive range of services, we also offer a basic Direct Cremation – which is when we arrange the cremation with no funeral service.  Please talk to us if you are considering this option for your loved one, many national options may seem cheap but are often far from it.  Our inclusive fee for a Direct Cremation is £1,350

Simple Funerals

By using our service chapels, you are able to hold a simple service and combine this with an unattended cremation to reduce the cost of the funeral if you wish.  This option is often over £500 less expensive than a service at Torquay Crematorium.

We are also able to offer simple graveside services if burial is chosen.
