About our Lee funeral home

At Solent Funeral Directors, here in Lee-on-the-Solent, we help local families when they are in need of our professional funeral services, providing support and reassurance in the face of bereavement. If you have lost a loved one, we will arrange a dignified funeral by which to remember them.

If you want to say farewell in your own special way, our caring team is here to ensure you can. Catering for religious and humanist funerals, whether they be traditional or more contemporary, we will tailor the details to meet your needs and wishes.

Most of our staff are ex-Royal Navy and it is our honour to arrange military funerals for our fellow servicemen and women, when such ceremonies are sadly needed.

The effectiveness of the support we offer you comes from the time spent serving our Hampshire community. Established in 1998 by Danny Brooks, who remains here to this day and is much loved locally, we are involved in local charity fundraisers and parish activity, with Danny being a member of the Crofton Lions Club.

Our funeral home is on the High Street in Lee-on-the-Solent, allowing us to provide funeral services to not only local families but also those in the nearby communities of Hampshire. These include Fareham, Stubbington and Warsash.

The team at our funeral directors is here for you when you need us and available 24 hours. If you are in need of compassionate funeral care, call us today.

I'd like to thank everyone at Solent Funeral Directors for all the amazing work and kindness they showed us at our very difficult time when we said goodbye to our Dad.
Response from Solent Funeral Directors
Your kind words mean a great deal to the team who always work very hard to deliver great care.
Rating 5.0
From the start of the process I found that Solent Funeral Directors are true professionals in their field. Discrete and caring with that added touch made my Mothers Cremation run as smooth as could be. There was never a point in the process that I felt alone. As we all know how sensitive that a passing of a close relative is, Solent Funeral Directors made us feel that all was being dealt with. I cannot recommend Solent Funeral Directors enough. Thank you for all your help.

Solent Funeral Directors take care of absolutely everything in a dedicated, dignified caring manner as if the deceased was a member of their own family. Nothing is too much trouble, they think of everything and more besides. You and your loved one are absolutely safe in their hands both before, during and after the funeral, I cannot reccommend them highly enough. THANKYOU.

Over all the local office provided a good service. They went through the details in a thorough way and gave plenty of time for adjustments to be made and showed great compassion at what is a very delicate time. The Funeral was conducted in a professional way

Everything was so perfect for Will.

Emma and Kim were so compassionate from the first call to the collection of our beautiful son’s ashes.

They both totally helped us through this awful time and certainly made it easier, words really can’t express our gratitude.

Thank you all

Kim and her team were wonderfully helpful in making the arrangements for my father's funeral - with calm, thoughtful efficiency at all times. We really appreciated the sympathetic manner in all that they did to make it easier for the family to come to terms with Dad's passing.

Solent funeral directors was recommended to me by a friend who had used them when she lost her mother. Caroline was so warm and made us feel comfortable straight away, nothing was to much trouble. The way they looked after my grandmother I couldn’t have asked for more would highly recommend. Thank you for helping us through this very sad time

Rating 5.0
I cannot fault the service given by Solent Funeral Services. From the gentlemen who, after midnight, came to pick up my husband with compassion and dignity, to the drivers on the day, the whole experience was, although sad, quite stress free. Kim took overall care of everything and we were treated by her and her colleagues with kindness and efficiency. My family and I were given help, good advice and all the time we needed. We were made to feel at ease and nothing was too much trouble for them. Having had the major decisions in place with the AgeUk funeral plan, everything was well organised following one initial phone call. At no time were we stressed and we had total confidence all would go smoothly, which it did. I would recommend them without hesitation.

Solent Funeral Directors were in my opinion absolutely amazing. They took us through the options and explained everything so we could all understand. The funeral on the day couldn't have gone any better. It was a beautiful service and Caroline was there for us throughout the entire process.

Thank you for making a really rough time in my life so simple and for giving my mum the send off she deserved. You did her proud!!!
