In 2006 an opportunity arose to purchase a garage and car showroom on the corner of Barrack Road and Portfield Road in Christchurch. By the end of 2009 the old buildings had been demolished and a new purpose-built funeral home designed and built.

The new funeral home offers ample parking for clients, a comfortable private lounge in which to discuss arrangements, a private chapel of rest and a Ceremony Hall with full audio/visual and webcasting facilities for funeral ceremonies to be conducted.

Tapper Funeral Service is proud to serve the people of Christchurch and surrounding areas from this funeral home.

Chris Johnson is the Branch Manager and has been in the profession for nearly 20 years and achieved his Diploma in Funeral Directing in 2011. Chris has gained his many years of experience working mostly in the Bournemouth and Poole areas in every role within the funeral profession, gaining a vast knowledge of each aspect. He is also a prepayment specialist.

Chris is supported by Funeral Director Jessica Ratcliffe and receptionist Vanessa Dowsett.
