Caring for you, day and night.

When you’re grieving, you need two things: a lot of compassion and a lot of practical help. We give you both. We’ll guide you through the many decisions you need to make in arranging a fitting funeral service for your loved one.

Get in touch, day or night, and we’ll come to you in the comfort of your own home. Or if you prefer, you can come to us; you’ll find a warm welcome in our comfortable offices in Wareham and Poole.

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.
