    Funeral Services 

    We offer a wide range of funeral services, including: 

    • Coffins and Caskets 
    • Cremation 
    • Burial 
    • Flower Arrangements 
    • Memorial Services 
    • And More! 

    Coffin and Caskets 

    If you decide on a burial, you’ll need to choose between coffins and caskets. A casket is rectangular and usually built to a more premium standard. Coffins are tapered at the head and foot and wide at the shoulders. We have an excellent selection of both available, including modern options. 

    Cremation Services 

    For cremation services, we supply an excellent range of urns to store the ashes in. Or, if you’d prefer to spread them somewhere, you’ll have the option of our crematorium garden of rest, a family grave, one of three crematoriums, or a different location, perhaps one favoured by the deceased. 

    Burial Services 

    f you opt for a burial service, we offer one of three burial locations, all councilowned. These are Hollybrook, South Stoneham; St. Mary Extra, Millbrook; and Southampton Old. You’ll also need to decide between a religious or non-religious ceremony. 

    Funeral Flowers  

    We offer a wide selection of funeral flowers to suit all requirements. For instance, it’s inappropriate to have red flowers at Buddhist funeral, so we have many excellent alternatives. We can provide a range of tasteful arrangements, from wreaths to casket sprays. If you’d prefer to use your own florist, that’s fine; we only ask that the flowers arrive two hours before the service begins to avoid any delays. 

    Memorial Services 

    Memorial services are often held after the burial to remember the deceased. These can be difficult and costly to arrange, but we can help. We’ll consult with you beforehand, ensuring a personalised service for the perfect send-off. And we can incorporate other services, such as music and flowers, to make it more personal. 

    Pre-Paid Plans 

    We’ve partnered with Golden Charter Funeral Plans to provide a flexible and easy way to make your own funeral arrangements. You can put together a pre-paid funeral plan that takes care of all the planning costs, releasing your loved ones of the burden of arranging and paying for your funeral when you’re gone. Upon your death, your plan can be easily actioned by our directors.
