Reviews of our services
Emma was with us on the day and her kindness and compassion made a difficult time bearable.
Every aspects of the cremation service ran smoothly, on time and showed great respect to my late father. The Celebrant, Fiona, gauged my father’s character and personality exactly, and ran the cremation beautifully. She made all the family feel welcome and cared for. Thank you Fiona for giving my late father a wonderful send off.
I would highly recommend Dignity funerals and Stoke Funeral Directors, Gosport.
I was very grateful to them for their support at such a terrible time.
The empathy and help shown could not have been surpassed.
My Wife was a proud Gosport girl and we are proud to have Solent Funeral Services in our town.
Thanks again Emma.
Jim Tomlinson and Daughter Sally
They made the whole process easy on us nothing was too much trouble and their kindness went above and beyond. Thankyou so much.
After my Mum had died they were wonderful - especially Emma Smith who could not have been more caring, professional and reassuring at such an emotional and distressing time. Covid made everything more difficult of course, but Emma made sure that everything ran smoothly for Mum's funeral.
On the day Danny, the Celebrant, helped to make what was a lovely send-off for Mum.
I would recommend Solent unreservedly.
Treated with upmost care and respect
Thank you Emma
I would also like to say that, when I initially needed to contact the funeral directors, it was a great relief to find there was someone on the end of the telephone late into the evening.
