Independent Funeral Directors
Serving Dorset for over 110 years

At Douch Family Funeral Directors we believe that everyone deserves to have the perfect send-off. For families who are suffering the loss of a close family member of friend, choosing the right funeral package is an important part of celebrating their life.  

All our family funeral directors offer a range of funeral plans in Dorset. Each of our funeral packages cater for different requirements and budgets. Our funeral plans in Dorset are easy to understand and fairly priced. The funeral package cost will depend on which plan you select and if you opt for any additional add-ons.  

To give you a better idea of what is included in each of our plans we have put together a visual table. This shows clearly what services are in each pre-paid funeral plan and the type of coffin that is included. Visit our online store for more information about coffins and urns for ashes.  

If you have any questions about our range of funeral plans in Dorset, get in contact with us today. Get us a call on 01202 367307 or visit one of our local family funeral directors.
