Practical help and friendship, when you need it the most.
At a time of great sadness, we give you all the practical help you need – and as many cups of tea as you want.
We understand you want a funeral service with a difference; that reflects the true personality of your loved one. We can help you create something truly unique, including semi-religious and non-religious services.
For some people, viewing a loved one after death can help them as they work through their grief. We take great care of the deceased during their stay with us and our Chapels of Rest are open for family and friends to visit any time during working hours. Or just give us a call to arrange coming in at other times.
Giving you the choice
Many people don’t have a traditional faith and, until now, their only option has been to have a service in a crematorium. That’s why we have our own service chapel on our premises in Blandford. We can hold services with or without religious content.
Because it’s our own chapel, you can choose who conducts your service; whether it’s a family member, funeral director, humanist minister or religious leaders. Our service chapel can host up to 40 people.
As funeral directors in Blandford, we recognise that funerals can sometimes be expensive. With this in mind and to help you save money, we have created The ‘Blandford Exclusive‘, with full use of our Service Chapel.
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.
