Harmony Direct

Simple Funerals by Harmony Funeral Services in Poole Dorset

Our Harmony Direct option separates the cremation or burial part of the service from the funeral ceremony.

The person who has died will be looked after by us, with the highest standards of care. We will respectfully take them to your chosen crematorium, cemetery or burial ground.
You can have the peace of mind that the same person who makes the arrangements with you will accompany the coffin on the day.

If cremation, the ashes will be returned to you in a simple urn. This urn is suitable for scattering of ashes, burial or keeping them at home until you feel ready to decide a final resting place.

You can then arrange a separate memorial service for family and friends to attend, if you wish to. This option gives you the freedom to hold a memorial service at another venue or location of your choice, on a day and time that suits you.

If you would like any help in arranging a memorial service, please let us know.
