Past & Present: Eardisley Rail Station, circa 1863, is now the premises of Cheriton Funerals.

Our History

Cheriton Funerals is based on the premise that it once was Eardisley Railway Station.

The station opened on June 30, 1863, and closed on December 31, 1962. The railway connected passengers from the Welsh border villages of New Radnor, Dolyhir, and Stanner to Kington, Titley Junction, Lyonshall, and Almeley. At Eardisley, the passengers could change to Hay and Brecon railway or Hereford.

The Player family bought the grounds, and the old engine shed was converted into a home, now called Cheriton House. The Old Station Yard continues to be a hive of activities used by family businesses. There is still evidence of the railway and history around the property. Cheriton Funerals have recreated the old railway waiting room into the ‘Old Station Chapel of Rest’. We want to encompass the history of the grounds into our services and care for passengers in our community again who have one last journey to make.

“Our life is a constant journey, from birth to death. The landscape changes, the people change, our needs change, but the train keeps moving. Life is the train, Not the destination”.
