After the death of my father, I found Yeatmans Funeral Directors to be very professional, caring and sympathetic. John made me coffee and offered biscuits whilst he gave advice and guidance on all areas of the funeral and he provided me with as much information as possible to enable me to choose the funeral that satisfied my requirements. John also provided me with clear advice on the costs involved which proved to be very accurate when the final invoice was received.

John also recommended a celebrant who was absolutely perfect for the service I wanted.

All the staff at Yeatmans, together with the celebrant, were very helpful and supportive and provided a perfect send off for my much loved father. I am very grateful to them for their care and attention to my needs to ensure his life was celebrated with tears, laughter and much love.

Impeccable service from the team at Yeatmans. Thank you so much to everyone involved in making sure the service of my late father-in-law was carried out in a most caring & professional manor. John at Yeatmans was our main point of contact prior to the service and was extremely efficient and explained all aspects of what was needed prior to the funeral & what would happen on the day. Ian looked after us on the actual day - again with utmost professionalism - & Sophie, our celebrant, put together a fantastic synopsis of my father-in-laws life. A beautiful day. Thank you Louise & family

The staff at Yeatmans provided a first class service with a very personal touch. The fact that we could still meet face to face with them during the pandemic (whilst still observing the covid guidelines) was very much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always available to speak to us either on the phone or in person. The restrictions in place because of corona virus were sympathetically explained to us and the staff kept us informed at every step ensuring we were happy with all the arrangements. My family has used their services on a number of occasions and we had no hesitation in contacting them again to help us arrange my mother's funeral.
Response from Yeatmans Funeral Directors
Thank you so much for this lovely review which means all the more at this very challenging time. The team are working very hard to ensure that each family receives outstanding care and I am so glad their dedication has given you the service you needed.

From initial discussions to the day of the committal the help, advice, care, contact and thought shown to us and the departed could not be faulted.
In these difficult times of lock down, distances of the far flung family members, Yeatmans took everything into careful consideration producing a very thoughtful Order of Service along with an excellent Webcast of the service allowing many people to attend in spirit.
Even to sending us photographs of the floral tribute showing a particular request we had made, following up a few days later with a sprig from the tribute, the card we had requested they wrote on our behalf, the photograph of the departed that had been placed on the coffin, all contained in a memory box in which there was a folder of the same design as the Order of Service.
A very big thank you from Noreen and Ronnie
Response from Yeatmans Funeral Directors

It has been an honour to look after you and your loved one and to respond sensitively to your specific needs.

From the minute I was introduced to the staff at Yeatmans Parkstone I was dealt with utmost respect. Emily who invariably met me when I visited, was prompt and extremely efficient. Julie who dealt with the details of the process and arrangements was again extremely efficient. Ian who dealt with all arrangements on the day was very supportive, helpful and understanding of the needs before, throughout, and after the service. Overall I received excellent service from the Parkstone Office, and would not hesitate to recommend them.

Excellent hassle free service. My parents through recommendation had taken out Dignity Funeral plans, which covered 99% of the funeral costs.
It was so good just to make one phone call and have most of the funeral arrangements completed, just a small amount of personal details to be arranged.

All the staff were understanding, polite and very helpful, and most efficient. Thank you Dignity.
