Compassionate Funerals was established in November 2012 by Hasina Zaman.


Hasina wanted to provide a female-led funeral service that set out to better serve the diverse communities of London and beyond.


We do this by providing a bespoke service where we listen to what you want and create the funeral with your beliefs, wishes and values at the very heart of what we do.



Hasina Zaman

Hasina is one of London’s few female CEOs within the funeral service industry.


Having lived and worked in East London for over 20 years as a teacher, lecturer and artist, she has a strong understanding of, and links with, the multi-faceted communities which make up the City.


Hasina identified a need for more compassionate, unique funeral services which paid heed to what people wanted for themselves and their loved ones.

Allistair Anderson

Allistair has over 20 years experience of working in a wide variety of roles with some of the best local and national undertakers, cemeteries and crematoria in London.

Allistair regards it as the highest honour to be able to serve people at one of the most difficult, life-changing moments in their own lives.

He believes in empowering people, so they have control and are able to have the funeral they want & need.

Samantha Gage

Samantha grew up in the Malvern countryside, and having lived and studied in Leeds and Japan, eventually moved to London to pursue a career in fashion.
Feeling compelled to begin a new career of service to others, she had always felt drawn to the funeral industry, and believes in the importance of the supportive and healing role it can provide.
