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.
