About Us

Richter Funerals is a family business that was started by the late Conradt Richter in 1981 in King William's Town under the name Richter & Richter Funeral Directors. Having been in the bereavement industry since the late 1960’s, Conradt and his dedicated wife, Eleanor, were able to build a successful family business serving the Border region. After an initial partnership in another business in East London, it was decided to open Richter & Richter East London in 1997.
After Conradt Richter’s sudden death in 2012, Eleanor entrusted her children to become her partners in carrying on the legacy that they had built. The management team currently comprises Lucille Banks (Accounting & Group Schemes), Wayne Banks (Branch Manager - KWT) and Paul Richter (Branch Manager - EL).
Richter Funerals is focused on taking the stress out of a difficult time by handling funeral and cremation arrangements in a dignified and compassionate manner. The business has always been based on strong ethical values, catering for the richly diverse cultures and traditions of the community in the region.
In addition to funeral and cremation services, Richter Funerals also offers related products and specialist services such as funeral policies, in-house floral arrangements, wreaths, tombstones, exhumation, local and international repatriation.
