Call us any time. We’re always ready to help.

We’re here day and night to help you through a difficult time. We’ve been taking care of people since 1922.

Arranging a funeral involves making a lot of decisions, so we want to make things as easy as we can for you. We’ll guide you through the whole process to make sure the funeral is exactly what you want.

We can visit you in the comfort of your own home, or take good care of you in our quiet offices in Ferndown. Wherever we talk, you can rely on our discretion and compassion at all times.

Planning ahead

It might sound strange, but it’s a really good idea to plan your funeral in advance. If it’s all planned and paid for in advance (at today’s prices) it’s a tremendous relief for your loved ones when the time comes. You’ll have spared them the stress of deciding how to arrange your funeral and how to pay for it. Come in and we’ll talk you through the details.
