About Us

Jonathan Terry Independent Funeral Directors, Pear Tree Avenue, understand the importance of saying goodbye to your loved ones with dignity, respect, and personalised care. As truly independent funeral directors, privately owned and serving all faiths and backgrounds, they are committed to providing a service that honours the unique lives of everyone they serve.

Established in 1999 by Jonathan Terry, who has been dedicated to the funeral profession since 1985, they have built a solid reputation for delivering personal and excellent service to families throughout Southampton and beyond.

Over the years, Jonathan Terry have continuously reinvested in their business to ensure that they offer the best possible support to their families. In 2008, in response to the growing demand from families on the eastern side of Southampton, they opened their London Road funeral home.

In 2013, they embarked on a journey of redesign and refurbishment of their Peartree Avenue premises, culminating in the completion of the project in 2014.

A significant milestone in their journey came in December 2018 when they acquired 103 Peartree Avenue and launched the White Lily Centre, a bereavement centre offering counselling services to all. The White Lily Centre stands as a symbol of their commitment to supporting families beyond the funeral itself.

In May 2022, their services were further enhanced with the introduction of a new fleet of Mercedes hearses and limousines, ensuring that every aspect of your loved one's final journey is conducted with the utmost care and professionalism.

Behind every successful business is a dedicated team, and at Jonathan Terry Independent Funeral Directors, there is a team of compassionate professionals who truly believe in the importance of their vocation. Their unwavering commitment to supporting families during your time of need is the cornerstone of their reputation for excellence.

As a truly independent business, they take pride in the reputation they have built, the dedication of their team, and the unparalleled service they offer to families throughout Southampton and beyond.

Opened in 1998, their Peartree Avenue funeral home is located at the junction of Gainsford Road and offers a private chapel of rest along with free parking and full disabled access. Their opening times are 9am-5pm Monday to Friday but they are available 24-hours a day by telephone.

  • 5 Ann Exley 5th Jun 2024

    A very professional and helpful team. Everything went according to plan and I would like to give thanks, especially to Victoria. Would recommend your services one hundred per cent.

  • 5 Jessica Medus 4th Jun 2024

    I cannot rate Jonathan Terry more highly. They made an awful time in our lives so much more bearable and gave our loved one a truly special send-off. We felt completely looked after from start to finish, due to their empathy, professionalism and patience. In particular, I want to say a huge thank you to the wonderful Victoria, Trish and Tracey. We obviously wish (more than anything) that we hadn't had to organise a funeral at all, but since we did, it was perfect. We've had so many compliments about how well the service went.

  • 5 Dorcus Walker 4th Jun 2024

  • 5 Ian Piper 3rd Jun 2024

    The service and care provided for Terry by Victoria, Jonathan, Matthew and Trish was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble.  The funeral service was a celebration of Terry’s life, with many positive comments about the way it was conducted. I would highly recommend Jonathan Terry Funeral Directors. 

  • 5 Ian Nicholls 2nd Jun 2024

    From the first meeting to the farewells at the end of the service, Jonathan Terry was faultless. Everybody went above and beyond to be helpful, compassionate and supportive. They made a very difficult time as easy as possible and delivered an impeccable service. We have used them before and if Needed will not hesitate to use again. Extremely professional, genuinely compassionate, respectful and, sorry to be crass, but for less than I expected 

  • 5 Mike Hill 29th May 2024

    I cannot praise Jonathan Terry's enough. From start to finish they made the whole process as stress free as they could. Every person I dealt with was very professional and humble and I can highly recommend their services.

  • 5 Diane Godfroy 20th May 2024

  • 5 Edward Mortlock 15th May 2024

    An excellent, friendly, courteous and thoroughly professional service from start to finish. My family and I were put at ease by the staff and were guided through what could have been a painful experience, in a most helpful and caring manner.
    Our grateful thanks go out to the wonderful staff and I recommend these kind people to anyone that needs a caring and worry free time in these obviously sad occasions. Thank you.

  • 5 Michael Hunt 14th May 2024

    Jonathan and his team were both empathetic and professional. Very respectful, and could not do enough for us. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

  • 5 Bernadette Trainor 14th May 2024

    Our first meeting with Victoria was very soon after my mum had passed away at home.  Victoria was so kind and reassuring, going at our pace and offering words of comfort and a few details as to what would happen next.  Victoria called the following day both to see how we were and to again talk us through the first few steps of attending to the formalities and arranging mum’s funeral.  When we visited Victoria at Jonathan Terry, Peartree Ave, again, her approach was very professional but at the same time, sensitive towards our emotions whilst taking us through the process.  We felt very much that we were being guided through and could rely totally on their services before and on the day.  Mum's funeral was perfect with every detail just as it should have been, allowing us to attend and mourn without being concerned about it running smoothly.  The highest of recommendations from myself and my family for Jonathan Terry and a particular thank you to Victoria.

  • 5 Debbie Freemantle 13th May 2024

  • 5 Julie Russell 11th May 2024

    From 1st entering the shop we were made very welcome and were put at ease and were shown kindness and empathy. We were informed of what was to happen and when and there was lots of communication and the obituary was really nice for people tp share and add comments etc. The funeral service was really lovely and the people that attended thought so as well and that mum would have been very proud. Thank you all so very much for arranging a wonderful funeral and we will certainly recommend your company to family and friends.

    Jonathan Terry was very understanding and helpful in arranging my husband's funeral. The staff kept in touch with us throughout. The whole firm was extremely professional yet friendly and I know my husband would have been so pleased that they made my life and decisions so much easier. I would thoroughly recommend this firm to every one who asks.
