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.

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.

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.

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

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.
