Affordable Funeral Packages for Your Loved One’s Final Journey

Additionally, we can assist you in selecting the appropriate vehicles, choosing a suitable coffin, and arranging a viewing in our peaceful chapel of rest.

Cremation Services and Memorial Options

As the most attentive funeral directors Bitterne has to offer, we have been providing cremation services in Bitterne and the surrounding areas for over a century. If you opt for cremation for your loved one’s funeral, we work closely with three reputable crematoriums in Southampton. 

You can choose between the Southampton Crematorium on Bassett Green Road, the Wessex Vale Crematorium in West End, or the Test Valley Crematorium in Romsey. In the area, the main cemeteries are owned by the Council and include: 

  • Hollybrook 
  • South Stoneham 
  • St. Mary Extra 
  • Millbrook 
  • Southampton Old 

If you are interested in other cemeteries in the neighbouring boroughs, please contact us for more information. Cremated remains can be scattered in the crematorium garden of rest, a family grave, or even a churchyard if available. Alternatively, you may choose to keep the remains at home or scatter them at a meaningful location. 

We understand the importance of time and thoughtful decision-making, and we will securely hold the remains at our premises until you have made your final choice. If you decide to keep the remains, we offer a wide selection of urns for you to choose from.
