Dorchester, Higher Ground Family Funerals, Dorset
Our service is for those families who don’t want the traditional funeral director with hearse and bearers. We aim to assist the family in having a funeral in a more relaxed manner with the involvement of the family if they wish. For those who don’t want to hold a funeral we offer a direct burial service with interment in our natural burial ground. Most things are possible please do feel free to contact us and ask any questions.
