Independent Funeral Directors
Serving Dorset for over 110 years

As a leading provider of cremation services in Dorset, Douch Family Funeral Directors have seen a notable increase in the preference for cremation funerals, a trend that mirrors the national statistics. With over 75% of UK funerals now being cremations, largely driven by the scarcity of burial space, particularly in urban areas, this number is projected to continue rising.

As a trusted name in Dorset, Douch Family Funeral Directors provide a wide array of cremation services. Whether you choose one of our serene private Ceremony Rooms for the service, opt for a traditional or an unattended funeral, we are here to support your choice. Our team also offers a host of additional options, including arranging flowers, catering, transport vehicles, and service sheets, to personalise the service.

Taking into account the varying needs of the bereaved, we provide flexible service times at our two nearest crematoriums in Dorset: Bournemouth Crematorium and Poole. We also extend our services to Weymouth, New Milton, Romsey, Yeovil, Salisbury, Southampton Crematoriums, and others nationwide. Each crematorium chapel is designed to accommodate both religious and non-religious funerals, allowing for the entire funeral service to be held at the crematorium or at a location of your choosing.

Following the cremation, the cremated remains are usually available for collection by the funeral director or a designated individual the next working day. While typically stored in a modest container, you have the option to select a more visually appealing one. Crematoriums generally store cremated remains for up to a month, after which a storage fee may apply.

It’s essential to note that a Certificate of Cremation, a required legal document, is provided alongside the cremated remains.

The final resting place for the remains is entirely your decision, without a set timeframe for disposition. Scatter the ashes at sea for a unique farewell, keep them in an urn at home, or choose to bury them.

Many families find solace in having a place to visit and remember a loved one. Interring the cremated remains in a churchyard or cemetery and marking the plot with a memorial is a popular option.

To learn more about our cremation services in Dorset, do not hesitate to contact Douch Family Funeral Directors. Our team is ready to guide and support you during this difficult time.
