About Us

We are John Shering Funeral Directors in Fordingbridge, Hampshire. If you have experienced the loss of a loved one, we can arrange a dignified funeral that is as special and unique as they were.

Having served the community of Fordingbridge – and those nearby in both Hampshire and Dorset – for more than 75 years, we can provide you with the support you need at this difficult time. We will also ensure your farewell is tailored to your specific wishes.

Our funeral directors can cater for all types of ceremony, whether it is a religious or a humanist funeral, a traditional or contemporary service, or something a little more unusual such as a woodland burial or a horse-drawn procession.

You can find our funeral home at the old School House on Provost Street, making us accessible to not only all of Fordingbridge, but also the surrounding families in communities such as Alderholt, Godshill, Sandleheath and Verwood. There is a chapel of rest here, where you can spend time with your loved one, and we can make this available outside of our normal working hours if it is more convenient for you.

Our funeral professionals are here to listen when you feel ready to talk. Available 24 hours, contact 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 01425 653019 to talk through your personal requirements.

    From the moment my mother's body was collected from my house and taken to await a post-mortem we felt looked after. We were kept informed about what was happening and guided through the whole process from start to finish. The staff were friendly and helpful every time I visited and nothing was too much trouble.

    My mother had bought a funeral plan through Dignity (Age UK) and named a firm of undertakers that were local to her but not to me. When I telephoned them to inform them of her passing they offered to transfer the business over to John Shering, who are local to me, straight away, I did not have to ask.

    We would thoroughly recommend this caring and professional company.
