Thank you for visiting our web site and for thinking of our family business. It is quite likely your visit comes at a difficult time for you and your family – we would like to assure you that we will do our very best to help you in every way that we can.

Our family has been helping locally bereaved people since our great-grandfather started as a funeral director in Towngate Street, Poole in 1904. Well over 110 years later and four generations on we continue this tradition. 

At Tapper Funeral Service we have funeral homes across East Dorset and West Hampshire. Our dedicated team of funeral directors and supporting colleagues are some of the most experienced in their fields and will expertly and sympathetically advise on and arrange every detail following a bereavement.
