About Us

At Yeatmans Funeral Directors in Southbourne, Bournemouth, we have been privileged to serve the families in this part of Dorset, providing the highest standard of funeral care. If you have lost a loved one, speak to us today and we will take care of the funeral arrangements.

When we experience loss, we can find ourselves exposed to a range of conflicting emotions. This may lead to uncertainty, along with apprehension as to what happens next.

For our team of Southbourne funeral directors, your wellbeing, along with the care of your loved one, comes first. This is why we will give you the support you need at this difficult time, helping to ease your concerns and offering our professional guidance, so that the ceremony can be tailored to the way you want it.

Whatever type of funeral you intend for your loved one, we can arrange it to suit your preferences. If there is a particular theme, religious or cultural requirement, we will always be able to help. The same goes for humanist funerals and more contemporary or unique services. Whichever you choose, you can be sure it will be a wholly personal occasion, allowing for peaceful reflection among family and friends.

Ever since our first funeral home opened more than 130 years ago in neighbouring Poole, the Yeatmans’ name has been associated with quality funeral care in Dorset. Established by brothers, Percy and Horace Yeatman, we have served the local communities ever since and you can rest assured that the experience gained over this time, handed down from one generation to the next, ensures you and your loved one will be treated with dignity and respect while in our care.

Our Southbourne funeral home can be found on Southbourne Grove – it was once a Post Office, so look out for the red post box outside – and from here we have helped families from areas all across Bournemouth. These include Ensbury Park, Kinson and Pokesdown, as well as the adjoining town of Christchurch.

We are here for you. Our funeral directors will offer compassion and understanding, and there will be somebody available to listen and talk 24 hours of the day. To find out more about the sympathetic funeral services we offer, call us today.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.

Call us today on 01202 830201 to talk through your personal requirements.
