About Us

As the longest established funeral directors in Lichfield and now with an office in Tamworth,  our reputation has been built up and maintained over 200 years. This team continues to provide the same professional and personal service today.

Our founders, Frank Martin and John Wait, originally started as furniture and cabinet makers. As with a number of carpenters at that time, they saw an opportunity to start directing funerals to meet the needs of their local neighbourhood.

Today F M & J Wait has an experienced team of funeral directors, who are recognised within the city for their professionalism, compassion, personal service and attention to detail before, during and after the funeral arrangements.
