Just give us a call for friendly help and advice.

Whatever hour of the day or night you need us, we’re here. We can talk in the comfort of your own home. Or if you prefer to come to us, we’ll make you feel at home in our pleasant offices in Leigh Road, Wimborne.

You have to make a lot of decisions when you’re planning a funeral. We understand that this might be the last thing you feel like doing when you’re grieving. That’s why we make it as easy as we can for you, giving you lots of help and good advice.

The Douch and the Small families have been helping local families in and around Wimborne arrange funerals for over 100 years. Using all our experience, we’ll help you arrange a unique funeral service that reflects the personality of your loved one.

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.
