Becky Ashley 4th Feb 2022

For what had been the hardest time of my life, was really made so much at ease in respect of organising the funeral. Mandie especially, but mandie Martin and jess make you feel as comfortable as possible in such a horrible situation. Mandie helped with my nans funeral 13 years ago at a different company and then we moved to New forest funerals with her when my uncle passed as she also helped with his and has now helped with my mums. I would never take my service anywhere else. The service is outstanding and there really isn't anything more I could have asked for. Thank you to you all

    From the moment we first spoke to Martin on the morning following our son’s death we knew we were in safe hands. Martin and Mandie’s handling of what must have been a very difficult situation, even with all their combined experience, was exemplary in its sensitivity and professionalism. We would thoroughly recommend New Forest Funerals without any hesitation whatsoever.
