Welcome to Colin J. Close Funeral Service

At Colin J. Close Funeral Service in Blandford we are an independent family funeral director who offer a sympathetic and professional service for the local community and surrounding areas.

We hope that this website outlines many of the legal requirements and personal formalities required at this time. We know from experience how demanding this occasion can be and hope these guidelines will be of some assistance to you. Remember that our staff are always available to help you along the way.

In the matter of funeral arrangements, a wide range of services, both standard and optional, are available. We hope these will enable you to choose the most suitable course of action for your own personal needs whilst accommodating all financial considerations.

Many of our clients will be facing these circumstances for the first time and will be unsure of the most practical course of action. With this in mind we have also included information about the financial, legal and more personal aspects of bereavement. We hope this information is helpful.

Finally, we would like to assure you that all enquiries are dealt with in the most professional manner, without obligation on your own part, and in the strictest confidence

Polite Notice to all visitors

During the outbreak on Coronavirus, we will endeavour to keep this office fully staffed where possible during normal office hours. Whilst we remain open, the entrance door will be locked. If you wish to speak to a member of our staff or wish to make any arrangements, please call 01258 453133 (Or simply knock on the door).

We kindly request that all visitors ensure that they have followed Public Health guidelines to help reduce the spread of the virus.

Thank you for your full cooperation.

Poole Crematorium is still operating for the foreseeable future, allowing only a limited number of people (a maximum of 10 at present) to attend funerals, though most friends and older relatives are choosing to stay away or just be outside to see the coffin carried in. Poole Crematorium is offering to webcast any services free of charge so they can be viewed at home. We will only set up this facility with the permission of the family.

Church services cannot be held at this present time, but if a burial is taking place a graveside service can be arranged with a limited number of people attending. Families are generally waiting until later in the year to hold a Thanksgiving Service.

Please stay safe and look after yourselves and each other.
