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.

From the first time we entered the back room of the funeral directors in lee on Solent the staff could not have been more caring and helpful. I was emailed and telephoned constantly checking on the welfare of the whole family and informing me of every step taken to ensure we had the perfect funeral that my dad wanted. Even on the day of the funeral we were presented with a framed picture of dad, a lovely presentation folder of the order of service in a nice box and the gentleman looking after us gave my mum a lovely bouquet of white flowers. So thoughtful.
I would not hesitate to highly recommend this company to anyone in the sad position of losing a loved one. You will not be treated better by anyone. Xxxx

Kim provided an excellent, informative and caring service from the first time I spoke to her. She dealt with my queries and requests with care. She recommended an excellent celebrant and on the day of my aunt's funeral she supported me and my family brilliantly. Well done to the whole team!!

Emma was so kind and totally professional in everything from start to finish. We couldn’t have got through it all without her.
She guided us along but at no point was she pushy .
I would definitely use Solent Funeral services again if needed and would definitely recommend them.

Solent Funeral Services came highly recommended through word of mouth. We cannot praise Emma and her colleagues highly enough. They are professional, compassionate and go the extra mile in everything they do. We appreciated the support and guidance throughout the process and nothing was ever too much for them. It was a lovely touch on the day when they gave mum flowers and helping us gently navigate things on the day while also being there in the background for any support. Thank you Emma for your dignity and respect for Dad and the family.

From start to finish the service was faultless and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. They were kind, considerate, thoughtful and very helpful at a time when I needed it most.
Arranging a funeral is a very stressful and extremely emotional time but it was made easier by their kindness and professionalism.

A great big thank-you to Emma and the team for providing a really beautiful funeral for my husband Andrew. He died far too soon for all of us. Emma supported us and guided us through the details at a time I wasn't able to organise or make decisions.
Your team were professional and respectful of our grief. Thank-you, you are to be commended.

My father passed away in August. He was in a care home where he had enjoyed his final years. Solent Funerals were contacted and both myself and husband wanted to be present when Dad’s body was collected. From the minute the funeral staff came into the Home they were so dignified and straight away introduced themselves to us and put us at ease. They treated Dad with total respect which was very comforting to us.
We then had a meeting with Kim to discuss the funeral arrangements. Nothing was too much trouble. She guided us through all the procedures and explained everything. Even went to the trouble of finding a particular photo of Lee beach for the front of the order of service. If we had any questions our telephone calls or emails were answered promptly.
The day of the funeral, everything went beautifully. An exemplary service with both dignity and respect was given to Dad and the family.
Thank you to Kim and all the staff at Solent Funeral Directors.

Solent Funeral Directors provided a first class service to myself and my family when my husband passed away. The staff were very supportive and kind from the first telephone call. They looked after my husband from the minute they had him in their care until the day of his cremation. Every detail the family required for the funeral were met and everything on the day went perfectly. Emma, Jackie and Kim all helped to make this highly upsetting time as stress free as possible and I am very grateful to them all.

Very happy with the service, professional throughout from Emma and others who kept the process ticking along with reminders which are important and located the celebrant who had more or less retired but who had done my Dad's funeral 10 years ago which was nice.
