Description

“Head & Wheble, Funeral Directors, were founded in the early part of the 20th century with the aim of advising friends, relatives and associates at a difficult and emotional time, and helping them give their loved ones a dignified and appropriate funeral.

From these early beginnings, the family business grew year after year as families, helped by the partners, recommended their service to others. Our founder, George Head, established his Funeral Service in 1926 at 1a Oxford Road, Lansdowne, Bournemouth where the present generations continue to this day. In 1943, George Head formed a partnership with another existing Funeral Director, Charles Wheble. Both partners, supported by their wives, were leading lights in their respective churches.

In 1946, following his service in the Royal Navy, Philip Head entered the family business, and joined his father, ably supported and encouraged by his wife Esmé. Continuity so important in the Funeral business, is maintained now through the third generation by Simon Head, grandson of our founder, who joined Head & Wheble in 1992. With his wife, Catherine, and their two sons, James and Robert, the strong family influence that surrounds a traditional family firm, is retained.

Since the early years, attitudes towards death and what is expected of a Funeral Director have changed. However, the Head family continue to serve the community by adopting the strong principles laid down by the partners and applying them to their service provided to the public today with every modern facility.

Having been established for 90 years our professional experience has become invaluable to all our client families. Our quiet, efficient and caring service is available 24 hours a day 365 days of the year to help families deal with what is all to often an unfamiliar situation.

We are long standing active members of The National Association of Funeral Directors and also hold membership of The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors and the British Institute of Funeral Directors.”

                      What is a Direct Cremation?

                      A Direct Cremation is an alternative to the traditional funeral. This involves the cremation of the deceased without a funeral service. A Direct Cremation is generally the most economic option because costs of the coffin, preparation of the body, funeral service and expensive transportation are not included. However, many people choose Direct Cremations for reasons other than expense, for example:

                      • - Wanting to have a memorial at a different time to the cremation
                      • - Expressed desire from the deceased to not have a ceremony
                      • - Individuals with relatives who face big physical or geographical challenges in coming together for a ceremony

                      The prices quoted for Direct Cremations include:

                      • All charges, meetings and paperwork for the cremation
                      • Collection of deceased and care prior to cremation
                      • A simple coffin and urn for the ashes
                      • Cremation fees and delivery of ashes to the family

                      Why is this price Estimated?

                      We work hard to ensure the Funeral Director Fees we display are accurate and up to date. However, unlike with our partners, we cannot guarantee this price is correct today.
