About Wilton Funeral Services
Brian Wilton carried out his first funeral in 1973, soon joined by his brother Charles, as Wilton’s established an enviable local reputation. Our Tuckton Road premises were carefully converted from their former use as a dairy office and yard. Although Brian has retired, Charles remains involved, along with his son Stephen, daughter Anne-Marie and Brian’s son Michael, as Wilton’s continue to offer the highest standards of care to every local family.
The team at our Bournemouth funeral home will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one.
Here at Wilton Funeral Services we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.
If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.
