Not having any previous experience with organising a funeral, we found the service extremely helpful.  I would recommend Funeralcare to anyone seeking help and advice.  Thank you SO much.

Graeme McGhee 5th Dec 2023

All the arrangements for my Mother-in-Law's funeral were carried out with great professionalism and compassion, I cannot thank Yvonne, Charlene and their team enough for helping us though this difficult time.

Julia Franklin 5th Dec 2023

The entire team looked after us wonderfully. Yvonne in the office took time to explain everything fully, all options were carefully explained, admin and order of service beautifully done. Faultless. Neil the funeral director and his team were outstanding...every detail attended to with care and respect. Our mum was well and truly honoured.

    Sadly this is not the first time I have had to use Yvonne's services, both cremation and burial, but on both occasions received a compassionate, caring and professional service.

    Fantastic service before, during and after the funeral for my lovely wife. Went over and above the call of duty. The funeral arranger and funeral director were stars.

    Very good

  • 5 Roger Creamer 21st Feb 2023

    The recommendation of the Co-op by Lavender House Care Home couldn’t have worked out better. Yvonne was brilliant and her recommendation of a celebrant to conduct the service was perfect.

  • 5 Amanda Topley 15th Dec 2022

    Yvonne made the whole process very simple and left me feeling reassured that my late mother was in good hands.

    The funeral itself went flawlessly, led by Neil. And the sermon by Danny was exactly how we wished.
    Would highly recommend.

    Yvonne provided a friendly, professional, service answered all our questions and sorted everything our for us with no pressure-selling Nothing was too much trouble and the officiant, flowers and orders of service were organised without a glitch. the service itself, the hearse, the pall bearers meant that it was a reflective, comforting service just as we wished.

    Yvonne , Grace and the team at Bitterne Park are.so good they are professional yet caring and will go out of their way to make the process as personal as possible. Yvonne has been the “face” of the branch for a long time and is amazing     

  • 5 Sue Milner 8th Aug 2022

    The care Olwen, mum, received was excellent from the moment she left us until the day of the funeral.
    We, the family, we’re also very well looked after through the whole process of difficult discussions. We were always kept informed 
    The care taken on the day of the funeral was wonderful, the coffin looked wonderful and gave us peace. 
    Thank you all.
