Whatever type of funeral you choose, whether it is religious or non-religious, traditional or contemporary, we can both organise it and tailor the service to your own preferences, ensuring it is a personal occasion truly reflective of your loved one’s life.

Our Gillingham funeral home can be found on Newbury, just along from the Lidl, meaning we are easily accessible to all the town. We are also within reach of our neighbouring towns and villages in Dorset, as well as those in Somerset and Wiltshire, including Motcombe, Shaftesbury, Tisbury and Wincanton.

If you wish to spend time with your loved one prior to the funeral, we have a chapel of rest offering peace and privacy.

    Nobody ever expects to be arranging a funeral for a loved one, I knew absolutely nothing about what to expect but Mark went through everything so I understood and went above and beyond with preparing the order of service finding the right person to lead the ceremony. He made the hardest day of my life into a beautiful service.
