Our Shirley Warren funeral home is located on Warren Avenue, near to the Southampton General Hospital. This makes us easily accessible to the city’s surrounding suburbs and districts, such as Bassett, Lordswood, Maybush and Millbrook.

    From the very first point of contact with Beestons my family and I were treated with dignity and caring and all the paperwork and arrangements were made easy by both Megan (Shirley Warren) and Julie (Woolston) who could not have done enough to make Dad's funeral perfect. Beestons also performed my Mother's funeral 5 years ago so I knew they would do Dad proud. Everything went perfectly and Beestons made a difficult time much easier. I can't thank them enough.

    We have been very sympathetically dealt with without excessive condolence but with great kindness. Mum had a prepaid funeral package which was a great blessing taking a lot of the difficult decisions away from us.
    Throughout the service has been efficient,we were kept up to date and consulted whenever necessary. We were so grateful for the delicacy shown when we needed an open coffin for a catholic service in the chapel of rest and that we were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble!
    The service at the crematorium went without hitch.
    I can highly recommend Beestons Funeral Directors.
