Arranging a funeral
Guidance every step of the way
When you call us we'll arrange an appointment for you to meet with a funeral director, who will be able to help, every step of the way.
The Dorset Funeral Plan
Flexible pre-paid funerals
The Dorset Funeral Plan is a pre-paid funeral plan which enables you to choose what kind of funeral you’d like instead of your family and friends having to guess.
Pay your respects
Simply search the diary by surname to find details of the funeral you wish to attend. You'll be able to leave a message in the book of condolence, as well as find information about flower and donation wishes.
