F.J Luxton & Son is an independent, family owned funeral directors based in Ottery St Mary and has been running in the same premises for over 150 years.

William Luxton started the firm in 1855. He passed it on to his son Frederick John Luxton who later gave it the name that we still trade under today. The business originally started as a building firm but in common with many small firms at the time they undertook funerals as well, as the carpenters were able to make bespoke coffins at the time of need.

Since then, the firm has been passed from generation to generation and is now in the hands of William's Great Great Grandson, Stuart Luxton and his wife Sue Luxton. Stuart looked after the building enquiries while Sue concentrates on arranging the funerals.
