About our Bournemouth funeral home

At a time of need, our Bournemouth-based funeral home, Yeatmans Funeral Directors in Southbourne, is here for you. If you have lost a loved one, speak to one of our understanding professionals, who will take care of the funeral arrangements for you.

Loss can lead to uncertainty and apprehension, along with an array of conflicting emotions. Our team of Southbourne funeral directors cares about your wellbeing and will give you the support you need at this difficult time, along with our professional guidance.

Whatever type of funeral you intend for your loved one, we can tailor it to your preference. If there is a theme, a religious or cultural requirement, we will be able to help. The same applies to humanist funerals, along with more contemporary or unique services.

With our first funeral home opening in Poole more than 130 years ago, the Yeatmans’ name has long been associated with quality funeral care in Dorset. Established by brothers, Percy and Horace Yeatman – to tide their building business over during the winter months – we serve the local community, guided by the same values of dignity and respect that inspired our founders.

Since opening in the Southbourne area of the town, our Bournemouth funeral directors has continued to abide by these principles, ensuring you and your loved one are treated with absolute integrity while in our care.

Our funeral home can be found on Southbourne Grove, in a building with a significant historical connection to Bournemouth. It was once the local Post Office, from where American tank personnel, stationed here during WWII, collected their wages. An air raid shelter used to stand out the back and a red post box remains at the front, making us easy to find.

The location allows us to help families from areas all across Bournemouth. These include those in Ensbury Park, Kinson and Pokesdown, as well as the adjoining town of Christchurch.

Our caring team of Bournemouth funeral directors will offer compassion and understanding, with somebody available to talk 24 hours of the day.

We are here for you, call us on 01202 830201 today.

This was the first funeral I've ever had to organise and I was very anxious about the whole process.
From my very first appointment with Chantel all my worries and anxieties disappeared instantly.
Yeatmans helped me plan the whole funeral giving me multiple choices to choose from,they were understanding and very kind and thoughtful regarding our needs.to the last detail.
They were there for me all the way to the end.
Thank you for taking away all the stress and anxiety during this difficult time.
Kind Regards

From the moment they were notified to when we left after the funeral both Dignity and the funeral director (Yeatman of Southborne) were absolutely amazing. The director Leah was incredibly compassionate and absolutely nothing was too much trouble.
Dad would have been delighted with the treatment he received and the service was simply perfect.

My late Uncle Ray couldn't have had a better send off!! The professionalism of the team led by Leah Hardy was exceptional. The whole day ran smoothly and everything that was asked for was fulfilled. I have already recommended Yeatmans to a colleague and would highly recommend to anybody who has the misfortune to have to arrange a funeral. Leah was supportive and couldn't have done more for me and the family. The Celebrant Steven is also to be thanked from the bottom of our hearts. He spoke as though he knew Raymond personally which gave us great comfort. Thank you once again for your professionalism and obvious support and empathy. 5 star service.
