Moodys Funeral Directors, New Milton
About our New Milton funeral home
The first funeral directors in town, we have been providing funeral care to the community since the 1930s. The knowledge passed down over this time informs everything we do and allows us to ensure that your loved one’s funeral is of the highest standard, while you are treated with sympathy and respect from the moment you call.
We offer a better quality of care when you need it the most, giving you everything from emotional support to guidance on matters you may be unfamiliar with.
By listening to you and what your wishes for the funeral are, we will make sure the ceremony meets your expectations. That is our promise, whether it is a religious or non-religious service, something traditional or a funeral more contemporary in nature.
Our distinctive-looking funeral home (formerly a Methodist Hall) can be found on the Old Milton Road, a location that makes us easily accessible to all parts of New Milton, along with neighbouring villages such as Barton on Sea, Bransgore, Hordle and Sway. We have two comfortably-appointed arrangement rooms, in which one of our funeral directors can discuss your needs in private, along with a chapel of rest that offers a peaceful space in which to spend time with your loved one.
You can call us 24 hours a day and there will be somebody here to listen. Contact us today so we can arrange a dignified and compassionate funeral service for your loved one.

If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.

Reviews of our services
My parents chose their own funeral arrangements and I thank them too because it removed traumatic decisions at the worst of times. Moodys made this possible and honoured everything they had requested.
Although Nan already had a funeral plan in place, Hadrian took no less time with us when discussing exactly what we wanted on the day. Upon Hadrian’s recommendation we used a gentleman called David to conduct the actual service - he was just perfect - Hadrian took the time to ask about Nan and the type of person she would warm to - he couldn’t have picked a better person in David!
The service itself was just what we wanted - lovely balance between remembering Nan and giving thanks for the 95 years she was here. All the gentlemen assisting with the service on the day, from the driver to those who carried Nan in, were polite and compassionate and showed her their utmost respect throughout. We weren’t rushed at all on the day - it was nice to be given the opportunity to say our own personal goodbyes to Nan without being hounded to leave.
My utmost thanks to Hadrian and the team at Moody’s in New Milton for making what was a particularly difficult day as compassionate as they did. They truly did my Nan proud.
