A part of Southampton since 1870, F C Hughes has, to this day, served the local community with professionalism and dedication. Starting out as a wheelwrights, under the guiding eye of founder Caleb Hughes, diversification into the build and repair of horse drawn hearses resulted in a move into funerals around the turn of the twentieth century. One hundred and twenty years later, our Hedge End funeral directors offers the same high standard of compassionate service and expertise for which it originally became known.

We relocated in 1987 to the current funeral home, which has undergone a complete renovation to ensure our facilities remain modern and of a high quality.

You can find our Hedge End funeral home on St John’s Road and we are accessible to the nearby suburbs of Southampton, such as Sholing and Thornhill, along with neighbouring villages in the Borough of Eastleigh, including Botley, Burlesdon and Horton Heath. There is a chapel of rest on the premises, providing a peaceful and private environment in which to spend time with your loved one.

The team at our Hedge End funeral directors is here when you need us. There will be somebody available to talk anytime of the day or night, ready to provide a sympathetic ear and informed advice.

We thank you for the care and attention given to myself and my family on the occasion of my late husbands funeral. It was done with compassion and thoughtfulness of everyone involved and was all that we hoped it would be.

We first used F C Hughes upon my father's death seven years ago and we're impressed then so on the passing of my mother, it was only natural to use Hughes again. The service received matched that of seven years ago. All our wishes were fulfilled and the whole service was perfect from start to Finnish. We were kept fully informed on all developments and I was impressed with the presentation of the hearse/coffin and flowers on the day. The hard work of J made for a fitting send off.
