Our History


Pughs Funeral Directors is a long established family business spanning four generations of the Pugh family.


Pughs Funeral Directors was started in 1890 by Jabus Pugh, who latterly passed the business onto his son, William (Billy) Pugh (pictured above). The business then passed to Billy Pugh’s son, Perry and Pughs Funeral Directors is now owned by Perry’s daughter, Helen.

Our premises have always been located in the Coleham district of Shrewsbury, where you will still find us today and over the years, as we have grown, we have proudly remained under the personal supervision of each successive generation of the Pugh family.

Today Pughs have an unrivaled reputation throughout Shropshire, Mid Wales and beyond for providing professional and dignified funeral and memorial services.
