    New Forest Funerals were so easy to deal with, helpful, friendly, offering excellent advice, good people to have helping at a difficult time. There was absolutely no hard sell, and the final bill was very reasonable. The post funeral help was willingly given and at no cost. Thank you.

    New Forest Funeral's have been brilliant, they have took such care with both my parents. Both Mandie and Martin have been so supportive at this difficult time, providing everything they possibly could to ensure as the client I was satisfied with the overall experience. Mandie always made herself available and was very easy to get into contact with at any time. Thank you so much for all the love and care you provided my parents and all of the support you have given me and my family.

    I cannot speak highly enough of New Forest Funerals. They, together with the Celebrant, Sally Randell and Bournemouth Crematorium delivered exactly what I was hoping for in my husband's funeral. Their service to me following his death was the perfect balance of sympathetic personal contact and professionalism. I would warmly recommend them to anyone else in the difficult situation following bereavement

    My sister and I cannot thank Mandie and Martin for their time, care and professionalism in the arrangements for our mum's funeral.

    Mandie & Martin did us so proud. Could not fault either of them. Mandie made us feel 100% when speaking to our Mum about Nan. She was sympathetic & understanding could not ask for more.

  • 5 Karen Macsween 12th Nov 2016

    At New Forest Funeral services we found that Mandie and her team were easy to talk to and discuss our needs and options with at a very difficult time. The business is small and local and not impersonal at all. They were happy to accommodate our slightly unconventional funeral idea for our Dad,  All 'parties'  liaised and the whole day ran smoothly and was about as good as a funeral could possibly be, and was, we hope an uplifting and fitting send off for our Dad, Ken. Many Thanks Molly, Karen, Mark, and Paul and families.

    Mandie Pidgley replied
    Karen, Thank you for your review, we always try and make each funeral as unique as the person that has passed away and are really glad we could help make Dad's service exactly how you wanted it, Mandie
  • 5 Stephen Marsh 10th Apr 2016

    New Forest Funeral Services are a true independent service that makes you feel so well cared for at a time when extra care and attention is required. Mandie and Martin are professionals who understand the needs of the bereaved family and those close to the dearly departed. From the initial meeting with Mandie you will feel relaxed and comforted and will be very well looked after. They provide a very tender personal service, every step along the path to saying the final farewell to the loved one. Martin and his support drivers and pallbearers delivered a professional and yet warmly received personal service. As our Funeral Directors of choice they provide exacting standards of service, a truly wonderful company. We were so happy with the first meeting with them and now after the service and farewells are a dear memory we are so glad that we were cared for by Mandie and Martin Steve, Jean and Kelly

    Mandie Pidgley replied
    Steve, Thank you for such a lovely review, I am glad we could make a very difficult time slightly easier for you. Mandie

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
