Frequently asked questions
When someone dies, the first steps will depend on how and where the person passed away. Our step-by-step guides will walk you through the practical steps. For additional support and personal advice, please get in touch with us.
You don't have to make an appointment at our funeral homes. However, doing so will ensure that someone can be available to cater to your needs. When arranging a funeral, our Funeral Directors are happy to visit you in your own home, if required.
Third party funeral costs are additional charges which we will manage for you and attach to your single invoice. Get in touch with us to confirm costs and plan a funeral to fit your budget.
If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.
Dignity Funeral Plans let you pay for your funeral in advance and at today's price. It's a way of taking control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront.
Reviews of our services
We were extremely happy with the service, provided, very professional and caring, first with the arranging of mums funeral and then during and after the service.. Thank you for making this sad day bearable..

I did want to purchase 5 of the small Robin pins for myself and my 4 children but they are only sold in packs of 10. It would be nice if you sold them individually or in smaller packs.
This is (thankfully) the first time I had ever organised a funeral before and I was so relieved to have, in Pauline someone to confide in and feel supported by.
Her and her team have been a guiding light in what has been some dark, horrible circumstances. Thank you for giving my Dad a special send off. I cannot recommend Stowells highly enough!
She is a wonderful person
Love Tom and Sam :-)
Can’t thank the staff there enough for all their work. At first the pricing structure wasn’t very clear on paper but then was all easily explained on the phone.
The day of the funeral went very smoothly.
All the arrangements being done for us which made it easier for us as we live in Southampton.
Thank you so much it is greatly appreciated.
From the bottom of my heart thank you xx

Could not be happier

Thank you all very much.
