A Little Bit More About Us…

We primarily care for families in Gosport, Lee-on-the-Solent, Fareham and Hampshire, although due to our outstanding reputation we are often contacted by families from much further afield.  We are available 24 hours a day and will try and ease the burden you may be feeling.

It should reassure you to know that we are members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, which means we abide by a strict code of practice designed to protect families and ensure a high quality service is being provided. Our premises are regularly inspected and you can be assured that your loved ones will be cared for in a safe and properly equipped environment.

Ruth recently joined the team as a Funeral Director after spending 12 years in Human Resources. Ruth has an attentive approach to each family, ensuring the time and attention they receive is completely personal, and tailored to them. Ruth is one of the team members who you may see on the day of your loved ones funeral, ensuring every little detail is perfect and the day runs smoothly. She is a great listener and loves to hear all about our visitors lives and the type of person they were before they joined us.

Our staff do not job share, so you will be cared for by the same team consistently throughout your journey with us. Although we are a female run funeral home, we can provide both male and female Funeral Directors should you have a preference. If you would prefer your loved one to be dressed and cared for by either a man or a woman, you only need to ask.
