South Coast Funerals started with the express purpose of enabling people to arrange a dignified and fitting service for a loved one.

Without any pressure to choose items beyond their means, a tradition we are very proud of, and one that is appreciated by the families we have helped and the friends we have made along the way.

We can tailor a funeral package to suit your needs and budget

from the simpliest direct disposition to the full traditional funeral service

Our Pre Paid funeral plans are quoted in full with no extras to pay at the time of death.

Other companies quote you a low price and then add more fee's

after your death putting a further financial burden on your family.

Recommendations for our services continue to
come from families we have helped, clergy that
appreciate seeing the care we take, and care
givers in various organizations who are comfortable
in making us known to people they look after.
