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.

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

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!!!

Very professional personal service given to the family by all the staff regarding the arrangements and on the day of the funeral. We had used their services previously hence the reason we used them again and would recommend them to anyone who has to seek a funeral who gives a caring service.

Recommended to Solent Funeral Services as they were local to my home and I had received good comments about them.
My 95 year old mother died recently and I contacted the Solent office. The helpful receptionist advised me to talk to Caroline.
My brother and myself went to meet Caroline a couple of days later at the Solent office, and we were pleasantly surprised by her kind and helpful attitude.
Caroline took us through all of the details relating to a Burial/cremation, church service, hymn selection, Music, celebrant, and indeed everything we needed to know, before during and after the service.
Caroline took care to organise absolutely everything and she demonstrated great attention to detail. Everything went flawlessly and we cannot thank her enough.

The Funeral Director and her staff provided a service for my deceased wife, myself and my family that was of the highest calibre.
The Director Caroline, acted in a caring, compassionate, sensitive and thoroughly professional manner. Her insight into my wife's character and that of our family enabled her to provide a fitting farewell to my wife that met both her needs and wishes and those of my family.
I do not hesitate to recommend the services of Solent Funeral Directors to anyone suffering the sad loss of a dear one.
