Welcome to M. Coghlan Funeral Directors

M. Coghlan staff

M Coghlan Ltd is run by Richard Coghlan, the fifth generation of the Coghlan family. The company was established in Fareham in 1861 by Michael Coghlan and a picture of him can be seen on the history pages. We have three qualified and licensed funeral directors.


Because we are independent, and family owned, we can offer our clients a range of options from which to choose - from traditional to green funerals. The ceremony can be religious or non-religious and can take place in a church, traditional cemetery or woodland burial site or at the crematorium. We have a range of coffins from oak, mahogany, elm to environmental choices.


We can arrange anything from floral tributes, music CDs to service sheets, newspaper announcements and catering to pre-paid funeral arrangements, and we have an independent monumental mason for all memorial services. We have a private chapel of rest for viewing.


We run a Daimler Jaguar hearse and limousine, but can also offer a horse-drawn service for those who want that bit extra.
