About Us

As Funeral Directors we are in a very privileged position to be entrusted with the arrangements of your loved one. Our service to you is personal. We are here 365 days of the year, 24 hours, day or night. We will guide you carefully each step of the way, from a traditional funeral service right through to a bespoke or green funeral service. All arrangements will be made by Carl on your behalf, if required.

We pride ourselves on offering a caring, personal and professional service. We hold traditional values with a modern approach.
As Independent Funeral Directors we believe; For Every Life is Unique, So is Every Funeral. We listen to your wishes, in your time and provide our care, every time.

All of our staff have been personally chosen by Carl to offer the best level of service to our clients. Carl Boswell and Joy Davies (Dip FD) are the Funeral Directors of the company, assisted by Ryan Boswell-Funeral Manager, Kerstie Judson and Julie Sheppard who are our Funeral Service Arrangers, along with our dedicated team of Funeral Operatives. 

C.S. Boswell Independent Funeral Services is a family owned and managed business. 

Its founder Carl Boswell has many years of dedicated service and experience in the profession, starting in 2004 at the age of just 14. Carl is honoured and privileged to have learnt his profession serving in Oxford and Kidlington for what was once known as Oxford's only Independent Family Funeral Directors, before it was sold joining part of a large national organisation.

Since the start of his profession, Carl has looked after many families throughout Oxfordshire and beyond. Born and raised locally in Kidlington, Carl understands the local areas and the needs of the local communities within and decided to open his own Independent Funeral Directors to continue Independent traditions within the industry.

Funeral arrangements can be made in the privacy of your own home or at our Kidlington or Summertown funeral homes. Our premises are tastefully appointed with full facilities ensuring your loved one rests with us at all times. We have created our funeral homes to provide a warm, homely and relaxed environment. Free client parking is available at both our premises. 


Funeral Directors Serving Oxford, Kidlington, Woodstock, Abingdon, Bicester, Banbury, and all surrounding Villages. We can also assist with long distance funerals if required and offer Repatriation services and guidance.
