Guide to Funeral Directors in Southampton

With over 30 funeral homes across Southampton and the surrounding areas of Eastleigh, Romsey and New Forest, local residents should have plenty of choice when choosing a funeral director for their loved one’s final farewell.

As one of the major port cities on England’s south coast, Southampton has over 200,000 people living within the city limits. Southampton has a significant Polish community, while around one per cent of residents are Irish citizens and four per cent of South Asian heritage. This means that many funeral directors may have experience catering to a variety of religions and cultures, though it is advisable to ensure a funeral home can meet your requirements.

Southampton City Council manages five cemeteries: Hollybrook, Millbrook, South Stoneham, Southampton Old Cemetery and St Mary Extra Cemetery. Each of these cemeteries have areas to cater for different religious denominations, and Hollybrook, St Mary Extra and South Stoneham have their own chapels for funeral services.

Southampton Crematorium offers two chapels and excellent facilities, including dedicated car parks, enclosed areas for floral tributes to be displayed and viewed by mourners, and a peaceful Garden of Remembrance.

So professional; tightly aligned with our preferences; sensitively advised where appropriate and executed exceptional service on the day. Their knowledge and connectedness to other service providers ensured a totally integrated service was provided; sad day but so many of our guests; circa 180  were quite impressed. Wise choice

Hard to express in words our gratitude for the care and compassion the team at Peartree showed to our family in what has been a very emotional time for us all. You are clearly a very dedicated group of people who do their utmost to help people in these difficult times Many thanks.

The service provided was acceptable to all the family in every way and left no room for complaint. We now look forward to receiving my wife's ashes for personal scattering in due course.

From our Sad beginning right to the end of my Husbands funeral ,the organising and care and compassion shown has been second to none. I have been so overwhelmed by each and every employee I have come into contact with. During our grief they took all the worries away of organising a funeral. I couldn’t thank such a specialist company any more. They are continually keeping in contact with me even after the funeral. I would like to thank them all for making my Husbands celebration of life that much easier to bare.
