Serving Dorset for over 110 years

Call Us Anytime. We’re Always Ready To Help.

You can call our team at Ives & Shand in Poole day and night to help you through a difficult time. We have been taking care of people in Poole and the surrounding areas since 1922.

We understand that funeral arrangements involve making a lot of decisions, so we want to make things as easy as we can for you. We will guide you through the whole process to make sure all your funeral wishes are fulfilled. At Ives & Shand in Poole, we offer several types of funeral services, including cremationsnon-religious funerals and woodland burials.

When you need us, we can visit you in the comfort of your own home or take good care of you in our comfortable and quiet offices in Poole. Wherever we talk, you can always rely on our discretion and compassion.

We also offer pre-paid funeral plans.

Compassionate & Confidential

At Ives and Shand Parkstone, everyone deserves a funeral service that is personal to them. We will guide you through the choices so that we can create a service that truly honours your loved one. You can even choose an alternative to the traditional oak coffin. We have a wide range of coffins available to match your preferences; they can be made of willow, bamboo or hyacinth.

Cremation & Ceremony Services

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

The Ives & 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 funerals to suit your loved one’s wishes.

We recognise that funerals can be difficult financially. With this in mind, our customers can save money with our bespoke ‘Chapel Service’ package, where full use of our Service Chapel is available.

Pre-paid funeral plans offer relief for your loved ones. If it’s all planned, you will have spared them the stress of deciding on funeral arrangements. You can make financial provision too. Visit us at our funeral directors in Poole and our friendly team will be happy to talk you through the details.
