Providing independent funeral services to the Isle of Wight for over 20 years, contactable 24 hours a day.
A traditional funeral includes a funeral service followed by a short committal service at the crematorium or by the graveside.
A simple funeral may just involve a service at the crematorium, with transport for the deceased to the service.
Direct cremations are unattended cremations. They are performed at the crematorium usually in the evening or early morning .

We’re here to help
We pride ourselves on offering a personal and flexible approach to funeral arranging and directing. We are on hand to assist and advise whether you need us now or are planning ahead. Our main function is to provide a funeral service based upon your wishes.
Our team is staffed by knowledgeable people who care about the community and want to provide a compassionate, professional service. Rest assured your calls will be taken with complete confidentiality. We can also arrange for a home visit if you are unable to come to us. Nothing is too much trouble and we pride ourselves on the service we provide. Our aim is to carry out your requests with the utmost dignity and attention to detail.
Being “independent” we can better accommodate families and their loved ones with a more amenable approach in comparison to funeral directors, owned by conglomerates.
“I’d just like to express our utmost gratitude not only for yesterday but over the last couple of weeks. The compassion you showed when dealing with our family in such difficult circumstances was such a comfort. Yesterday’s Service was just what we wanted. Please convey my thanks to your staff who behaved with dignity and respect throughout.”
