Paul Bourton Funeral Service was established by Paul and Sally Bourton in 1995. They 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 available for people to visit their loved ones and the team at Paul Bourton Funeral Service.

Funeral director Thomas Powlesland, who joined the team in 2013; along with Stacey Lambert have now been trusted with the running of the business, continuing to meet the high standards set by Paul. They are supported by a dedicated and experienced team, making up the ‘Paul Bourton family’, who endeavour to give you a personal and professional service and deliver to your wishes.

 Tom Powlesland & Stacey Lambert

Kind, caring and compassionate staff who treated my family and, especially my Mum who passed away, with the dignity and respect deserved. Having to arrange a funeral for a loved one is difficult at any time, during the covid 19 pandemic things are even more tricky, however, my Mum received the best possible farewell under current circumstances.

An excellent service provided from first contact up to and including excellent after care. So glad we put our trust in them to take care of Mum, couldn’t have asked for anything more from Tom and the team.
