14th May 2018

At Douch Family Funeral Directors in Dorset, our number one priority is looking after you. We offer a comprehensive range of funeral services and options to help you create a dignified funeral that uniquely represents the personality and preferences of the person who has passed away.

Our clients often visualise a funeral which includes the removal of the deceased from the place of death, professional fees, preparation of the deceased, use of visitation rooms, cortege via a local address and provision of bearers for the funeral service. With this in mind, we have developed a Funeral Directors Services package that encompasses this.
