Guide to Funeral Directors in Bournemouth

Bournemouth has 11 funeral directors that provide services to a population of about 183,941. Some of the funeral arrangement services they provide include death registration, announcements, transportation, tributes and memorials. Customers can also benefit from after-funeral services such as monuments, memorial masonry, and financial and legal advice. Funeral homes in Bournemouth are spread out evenly in different sections of the town, from Lansdowne to Wimborne.

Over half of the population in Bournemouth is Christian, with the United Reformed Church, Church of England and Roman Catholic being the majority. Therefore many funeral directors in Bournemouth are experienced in offering services to suit these different denominations.

Other faiths in the town that businesses cater to include Sikhism, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism. Jewish religious functions are held at the Bournemouth Hebrew Congregation in Wootton Gardens, while Muslims attend the Bournemouth Islamic Centre and Central Mosque on St Stephen’s Road and Jamia Masjid on Cranmer Road.

A considerable percentage of the population of Bournemouth identifies as non-religious. This means that funeral directors in Bournemouth may have experience providing secular or Humanist services. Selected funeral homes make specialist arrangements, such as military funerals and burial at sea for customers who require them.

Bournemouth has four public cemeteries, including the North Cemetery and Kinson Cemetery, all of which have chapels for burial ceremonies. The Bournemouth Crematorium in North Cemetery is the only municipal crematorium.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Wonderful first class service from everyone involved in the planning and preparation of my father's funeral. With a special mention for Philip. Thank you for your calming support and superb expertise on making this service absolutely perfect.

Wonderfully kind and very professional. Philip was a constant source of guidance and help and very caring. The whole team worked seamlessly to provide a lovely send-off to our late mother.

I cannot recommend Nicholas O’Hara’s highly enough. They have supported me and my family through the funeral planning process with great professionalism, care and compassion. Nothing was too much trouble and I never felt rushed or under pressure to make decisions.  They accommodated all our wishes and made my husband’s funeral everything that we wanted for him. 

Savas Ersahin 2021-03-26 13:33:53

Neil and George Scott really were amazing! Neil was so polite and helpful from the moment we started speaking! Having spoken with several funeral directors prior this was not always the case! The funeral was the perfect send off and all went as planned! Thank you so much for making such a difficult time in our families lives that much easier to cope with! The Ersahin Family! All the best

From first contact to the cremation the service was seamless.  Rory was very professional, he has a lovely manner and made me feel that he was holding my hand throughout the whole process.  I would happily recommend them.
