Our team of funeral directors is here to support you throughout the process, helping to ease any concerns you may have and ensuring that your loved one’s send off is a tribute worthy of their life.

The funeral can be tailored to meet your specific wishes, with any particular details included to make sure it is a personal and loving occasion. We also cater for all types of ceremony, whether it is religious or humanist, traditional or modern.

Our Hampshire funeral home can be found on the Shirley Road, opposite St Boniface Catholic Church, which places us within easy reach of the local suburbs and districts such as Lordswood, Maybush, The Polygon and Portswood. We also have a chapel of rest, providing a private space in which you can spend some reflective time with your loved one, in the days leading up to the funeral.

Over the years, we have been privileged to help the local community, along with the wider Southampton area, and our Shirley funeral directors would be honoured to provide a dignified farewell for your loved one too.

You can speak to one of our caring team any time of the day or night. We are here to help; call us today.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.
