About

Paul Bourton Family PhotoPaul has been a funeral director since 1981 when he was just 19 years old, working for three different funeral homes in Cornwall before setting up his own business in 1995.

Paul and Sally set up their independent family funeral directors on Chapel Road in Paul’s home village of Foxhole and ten years later moved into purpose built premises in Ann’s Crescent, Foxhole.

In June 2011, their eldest daughter, Stacey Lambert, joined the business. In October 2013, Paul, Sally and Stacey were proud to announce the opening of their second premises in Truro Road, St Austell; an ambition of Paul’s since he started his own business, and now have the two premises open for people to visit us and their loved ones.

Both our Foxhole and St Austell premises have a reception area, Chapel Of Rest and an office to discuss matters in private.

Paul, Sally and Stacey are supported by several members of experienced staff who endeavour to give you a personal and professional service. With over 30 years of experience, we have earned a good reputation in the local community, and with highly trained and understanding staff you can be confident that you have chosen an excellent funeral director to assist you with all the arrangements that need to be dealt with at such a difficult time.  From the first telephone call you make to us, we will give you all the information and advice you require and make the arrangements for your loved one’s funeral  according to your wishes.

Independent, family funeral directors, Paul Bourton and his eldest daughter, Stacey Lambert, are committed to offering a personal and professional 24 hour service.

From the first contact, Paul and Stacey will put your mind at rest and arrange everything for you in a caring and discreet manner according to your wishes, giving you peace of mind at a distressing time.

“My family is very important to me, Sally and I have two daughters, Stacey and Katie who we are immensely proud of and five fantastic grandchildren.  Stacey joined the business in June 2011 and hopefully some, or indeed all, of the grandchildren will, in the future, be a part of our independent family funeral service.

I would like to mention Mr Joe Ogden who gave me the opportunity as a young 19 year old to become a funeral director, a true gentleman whom I will always hold in the highest regard.

Over the last 32 years it has truly been a privilege to have dealt with so many lovely families, all of which I have and will continue to treat with respect and dignity as I would if I were dealing with a member of my own family.

Finally, having our new premises in St Austell is a ‘dream come true’. We held the ‘Dedication and Service of Blessing’ on 9th October, which was officiated by David Michael and Rev Joan Watson.”

Paul Bourton – October 2013

“I grew up in St Austell and attended Mount Charles Primary School, Penrice Community College and St Austell College. I worked at Mill Auto Supplies and Barclays Bank before joining Restormel Borough Council in 2003 and spent eight years gaining experience in different areas and meeting lots of people.

My dad has been a funeral director for over 30 years, he and mum started up their own business, Paul Bourton Funeral Director, in 1995.  In June 2011, I left my job as a Licensing Officer at Cornwall Council to join the family business.  Becoming a funeral director is a very special role and I finally feel I am making a difference to people’s lives, giving family’s loved ones the appropriate send off.

I am keen to promote the excellent service we provide, in order to make a difference to families in the community we live in.

It is truly a privilege to arrange and conduct a funeral service and be trusted to look after a family’s loved one.”
