Over 110 years of experience helping locally bereaved families.

Tapper Funeral Service has been helping locally bereaved people since our great-grandfather started as a funeral director in Poole in 1904. We continue this tradition today, and now have funeral homes across East Dorset and West Hampshire. 

We took premises in Wimborne Road, Moordown in 1996; Alan Rice is Company Director and Funeral Director at this office.

Alan, Bournemouth born and bred, began his career at Bournemouth Crematorium in 1978 as a certified cremator operator and chapel attendant. In 1984, he took the opportunity to train as a Funeral Director, rising through the ranks to Area Manager, overseeing five branches. In this role, Alan found himself drawn further away from bereaved families, and so welcomed the opportunity to join Tapper Funeral Service in 1996, where he has been able to fully utilise his Diploma in Funeral Directing, and CFSMA Funeral Management Diploma.

We endeavour to provide comfortable surroundings yet with every modern facility, upholding the traditional values that may be expected of a family business.

From selecting a coffin to memorial masonry and floristy, from pre-paid funeral plans to bereavement support, you will find our full range of services, help & advice detailed at our website
