About Us...

Roberts Bros. was established in 1951 by Mr Hugh Owen Roberts, in the small village of Pentre Broughton, on the out-skirts of Wrexham. Having been born in the village, where the family successfully owned the local grocery shop and post office, his talents lay elsewhere, he was a craftsman and among the many skills obtained by his apprenticeship as a carpenter/joiner was the ability to construct coffins and caskets. Over the course of some years this led into Hugh Owen and Roberts Bros. gaining a reputation as the village undertakers, during this time he was joined by his son Stuart and together their service to the village and surrounding communities continued to grow.

The company at this time was based in the workshops situated at the rear of the families village Post Office but over time and as the company grew larger, new more modern premises were required and the decision was taken to relocate to the company’s present base adjoining the family home on the brow of High Street in Pentre Broughton. Over the years the premises have seen many changes and updates, from the original garages, workshop and Chapel of Rest to the new modern, stylish and welcoming building of today designed to cope with all aspects of funeral services and a wide variety of family requests.

Over the years the company has gained a reputation for reliability, quality and personal service to its clients, during a difficult time of sorrow and sadness. A reputation built on the personal service provided by not only the Roberts family but also their highly skilled and adaptable team.

Since 1994, we have also offered our services as Hughes and Jones Bros, of Coedpoeth due to the retirement of the directors, Glyn and Idris Jones, ensuring that this also remains a family run business. In March 2005 the funeral services of another family firm, T.A. Rogers & Sons, of Brymbo, have also been provided by the Roberts family following the passing away of Mrs Gwyneth Rogers.

Sadly, Hugh Owen passed away in February 1997 leaving son Stuart and his grandson’s Richard and Philip to continue the traditions which he’d established.

In October 2003 Stuart was taken ill and although he returned to work the following year he sadly passed away in November 2006 and the responsibility for the safekeeping of the family business was entrusted to his wife Susan, Richard and Philip, and his daughter in law Susan. In April 2012 Susan, Stuarts wife and the boys’ mother also passed away following a sudden and short illness.

Over the years Roberts Bros. well respected reputation as one of Wrexham's leading independent funeral directors has led to them arranging and conducting funeral services not only in Wrexham and the surrounding areas but nationally and internationally.

The aim is simple, to continue the long established family traditions of personal service and care to families in their time of need.
