About Us

For almost 200 years, family-run independent funeral director AB Walker has been looking after the final farewells of Berkshire, West Berkshire and South Oxfordshire with care, compassion and understanding. We’re doing our bit to make the world a better place, one step at a time – now, and for the future.

We stand by our values in everything we do

As with any family business, the heritage, values and culture we have nurtured over the years are infused into everything we do. We trust, respect and care about the people we work with and alongside, whether that’s the team here at AB Walker, the people entrusted to us before their final journey, or you, the people we’re supporting and guiding through the tough experience of losing a loved one.

Our professional experience has taught us the importance of listening to our customer’s needs and wants, and we know how to deliver a seamless experience with professionalism and kindness.

As you can see from our years in business, we love what we do, and hope to carry on doing what we do best for many years to come. That means thinking of the future and doing our utmost to innovate new ways to support sustainable funerals wherever possible.
