Emma and her team guided us through a very difficult time in our lives and went over and above our expectations to ensure we gave our Dad the service and care we wanted. I would highly recommend Solent Funeral Directors and have since purchased another Dignity plan for another family member based on the experience we received.

I was very, very impressed with Solent Funeral Directors.

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.

The member of staff who dealt with the funeral arrangements for me was both very helpful and sympathetic and guided me through the procedures with efficiency. The lady also promted me about areas which I hadn't thought about.
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.
Response from Solent Funeral Directors
