South Downs Funeral Service have two funeral homes located in the delightful villages of Denmead near Waterlooville and Wickham near Fareham at the south eastern edge of the Meon valley.
We are very proud to be totally independent and family owned.
Based on many years of experience, we believe that we are able to provide a personal service as only a family run funeral home can. It is our commitment to you that we will have the time to discuss all your personal requirements; whether it is regarding a funeral service, floristry arrangements, stonemasonry, pre-paid funeral plans or limousine hire.
We provide an extremely high standard of care, help and support to all the outlying villages including: the Meons, Hambledon, Southwick, Boarhunt, Catherington, Clanfield, Waterlooville, Cowplain, Horndean, Emsworth, Havant, Swanmore, Waltham Chase, Botley, Bishops Waltham and Fareham, to name but a few.
We are also able to arrange funeral services many miles away, or attend to repatriations if you lose a love one abroad.
The Managing Funeral Director at South Downs is Mr. Paul M. Lee-Bapty Dip F.D., Affil R.S.H. Paul is a second generation Funeral Director with over 30 years of experience, who has followed in his father’s footsteps. Indeed, Paul has taken the role of Funeral Director as his vocation in life.
Paul works with our lady funeral director Ms Dee Galloway, and in turn they both have special responsibilities for ensuring that we are always here to care and support you.
We very much appreciate that each and every funeral service must be carried out to your wishes. You can be assured that the same member of staff will discuss your personal wishes throughout, and provide guidance and support to you and the family.
We will ensure that the person who supports you through the arrangements of the funeral, will also conduct the service on the day. Our promise to you is that we will support you both personally and confidentially, either in our funeral home or in the privacy of your own home.
We will not use a call centre to take care of your concerns when our office is closed. This means when you talk to us, you only have to ask once, you will never have to worry that a message will not be passed on. It is most important that you have confidence in the person you are talking to; that they understand you and appreciate how you feel.
We are dedicated in providing a professional service to the highest possible standards, and believe that every funeral can be truly unique representing the life, beliefs and wishes of the deceased, as well as their family and friends.
This is the level of care and support we will provide, on each and every occasion.
