Guide to Funeral Directors in Southampton

With over 30 funeral homes across Southampton and the surrounding areas of Eastleigh, Romsey and New Forest, local residents should have plenty of choice when choosing a funeral director for their loved one’s final farewell.

As one of the major port cities on England’s south coast, Southampton has over 200,000 people living within the city limits. Southampton has a significant Polish community, while around one per cent of residents are Irish citizens and four per cent of South Asian heritage. This means that many funeral directors may have experience catering to a variety of religions and cultures, though it is advisable to ensure a funeral home can meet your requirements.

Southampton City Council manages five cemeteries: Hollybrook, Millbrook, South Stoneham, Southampton Old Cemetery and St Mary Extra Cemetery. Each of these cemeteries have areas to cater for different religious denominations, and Hollybrook, St Mary Extra and South Stoneham have their own chapels for funeral services.

Southampton Crematorium offers two chapels and excellent facilities, including dedicated car parks, enclosed areas for floral tributes to be displayed and viewed by mourners, and a peaceful Garden of Remembrance.

Everyone was so helpful throughout the process. On the day of the funeral they made the day perfect they wore red ties for us which I wasn’t expecting and they made sure we were all ok. I couldn’t recommend them more they really helped me and my family but we’re very professional as well.

Mandie, Martin, Jess, Mike and all involved at New Forest Funerals have been truly fantastic and I could not have had a better team looking after the arrangements for my husbands funeral. They made a very stressful time much easier and helped me to give Andy a personal and memorable send off. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Mandie & Martin - my family and I would like to thank you for the wonderful service you gave for my husband's funeral on 3rd July. From our first meeting everything has been delivered with such dignity, professionalism and kindness. Once again, thank you both and your wonderful staff for making a very sad day much easier to bear. Glenyss Turner
