About Us

At Downer & White Funeral Directors in Sandown, we continue to set the standard when it comes to providing funeral care. To arrange a dignified and heartfelt farewell for your loved one, speak to one of our caring team today.

The loss of somebody special can lead to uncertainty at what is already an emotional time. You may feel apprehensive about what lies ahead and find the prospect of arranging the funeral to be a little daunting. That is why our caring team of funeral directors is here to help dispel any concerns you may have and ensure your loved one receives a send off fitting of their memory.

We are here to listen, as well as offer advice, and what you tell us will help to make the funeral a meaningful occasion personal to both you and your loved one. Our guidance will also make sure you do not feel you are making important decisions alone.

Located on the Sandown Road (next to the Stag Inn), we serve the families of Lake and Sandown, as well as the surrounding communities here on the Isle of Wight, including those in Godshill, Luccombe, Rookley, Shanklin and Windford.

Should you wish to spend time with your loved one prior to the funeral, we have a chapel of rest available to you and your family. This peaceful environment offers both comfort and privacy and can be opened outside of our normal hours if it is more convenient for you.

There will be a sympathetic ear waiting to listen when you call, so contact us when you feel ready. We are available 24 hours a day.

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.

Call us today on 01983 402073 to talk through your personal requirements.
