Business overview

Pring and Son maintain four generations of tradition providing a 24 hour personalised, friendly and professional service to meet each family's individual requirements.

Pring and Son was founded in 1895 by Sidney Pring, continued by his son Gerald and the business is carried on today by his grandson Martin Pring, assisted by his two sons Richard and Stuart. During the Second World War Gerald's carpentry skills were put to use by the Navy to construct wooden minesweepers on the Dart estuary, while Sidney carried the business in Hemyock.

Sidney Pring was a traditional builder and undertaker in the days when these two skills were often carried out in the same business, and this is still the case today, with Pring and Sons being well known local builders.

Sidney hand made all the coffins from local oak and elm in his workshop at Hemyock Castle, and Martin takes great pride in continuing this tradition today in his workshop at Hemyock. In addition to hand making coffins Martin hand digs grave sites where possible, and calls upon his many years of experience to ensure that all everything runs smoothly.

Outstanding service, again. Thank you.

I have dealt with many undertakers during my working experiences through caring for the elderly, and always found that Prings and Son were by far the best which is why I wanted to use them again for my husband's funeral recently. I had previously used them for 3 family members and will be using them for my own funeral when the time comes. They are very considerate and respectful at all times and did everything showing compassion and dignity, not just to the departed but to the entire family. Nothing was too much trouble for them and Richard went out of his way to make sure that everything went as smoothly as it possibly could, before, during and after the event. Thank you Richard and your team. We are very grateful. Jeanette, Karin and Johanna.

Outstanding service!

Richard,Wendy and Jean are an excellent team. They provided an outstanding service for my Mother's funeral. Always one step ahead, the whole process was seamless, running smoothly in what was a stressful time.
Their calm but relaxed approach in supporting and guiding us offered reassurance, resulting in a lovely funeral. Richard was professional and supportive both before and on the day, following through with her internment. We can't thank them enough for their kindness and would heartily recommend them. Bless you all.

Thank you!

My family and I are so pleased we used Pring and Son for my brother Tom's Funeral. Having seen reviews of the company and having been to a service that Richard had planned I just knew we had to choose them.

From start to finish, Richard was amazing. Everything was explained in a friendly manner as well as being professional at all times. He gets a 5 star review from my family and I. The service was absolutely beautiful and he worked with us to make it perfect. My brother wanted a silver hearse for his send off, Richard went out of his way to find one for us, we were so grateful for this!

The presentation of the Chapel of rest was beautiful, lit candles and my brother wore his clothes exactly how we knew him to wear them. The attention to detail was amazing. You can tell the company care for their customers and they pay attention to everything you say.

Not to forget all of his wonderful staff!

Excellent service throughout

Having recently had to come to terms with the tragic death of my 30 year old son, Douglas, from start to finish Richard Pring has been exceptionally helpful, understanding and professional. My son had to be transported from Bradford back to Devon and prepared for viewing in the Chapel of Rest. For me, the presentation of my son lying in the Chapel of Rest made an extremely distressing experience a little easier and I thank Richard for that. Overall, the service was excellent
