Independent Funeral Directors
Serving Dorset for over 100 years

Keeping it personal

At Ives and Shand Funeral Directors we believe everyone deserves a funeral service that reflects their unique personality. We will guide you through the choices so that, together, we can create a service that truly honours your loved one. You can even choose an alternative to the traditional oak coffin; they can be made of willow, bamboo or hyacinth.

Giving you options

If you don’t follow any particular faith, you might think that a crematorium is your only option. However, at Ives and Shand we understand that not everyone follows a faith and that’s why we have our own service chapel on our premises in Parkstone, Poole.

The Ives and Shand service chapel can host up to 40 people. We give you the option to choose who conducts your service at our independent chapel. At Ives and Shand we proudly offer both religious and non-religious funeral to suit your loved one’s wishes.

As funeral directors in Poole, we recognise that funerals can be difficult financially. With this in mind and to help you save money, we offer our bespoke ‘Chapel Service’ package, with full use of our Service Chapel.

Thinking ahead

Pre-paid funeral plans offer relief for your loved ones. If it’s all planned and paid for in advance, not only will you have spared them the stress of deciding on funeral arrangements and how to pay for it, but you’ll benefit from paying today’s prices. Visit us in branch and we’ll talk you through the details.
