Pre Paid Funerals
About M Coghlan Limited
M Coghlan Ltd is family-owned and has remained independent for over 150 years. We can offer a range of services and we pride ourselves in giving personal attention to every funeral. The ceremony can be religious or non-religious and we have a range of coffins from veneer to solid wood or environmental choices such as wicker or bamboo.
We have five qualified funeral directors between both of our offices in Fareham and Gosport, who are all members of the British Institute of Funeral Directors.
“Tom, on behalf of my brother and I, would just like to thank you again and the team at Coghlan’s for your sensitive care and support for my father’s funeral at a difficult time, especially being so close to my mother’s passing.
I thought the day of the funeral went very well in the circumstances and in this respect could you please also pass on my thanks to Bishop Paul Miles-Knight who delivered an excellent thoughtful and comforting service.
I’m sure my dad would have been pleased.”
“On behalf of Julie and all Peggy’s family, may I thank everyone at Coghlan’s for yesterday’s funeral. Everything went without a hitch and was as perfect as these things can be. You and your colleagues were easy to deal with and all modifications we requested were made without issue. We are very grateful.
We were also very pleased with Sharon. We hit it off as soon as she arrived for the prep meeting and she stayed for 2 hours getting to know Peggy and the rest of us. Many people commented at the wake about how well she ran the service. She did thing exactly as we had asked and it was so smoothly done.
The atmosphere was relaxed and one of celebration of Peggy. Even the 2 two year olds wandering about chatting and singing was a perfect metaphor for the cycle of life as we said goodbye to a 95 year old.”
“Hi Georgie, firstly the most enormous thank you, a truly heart felt thank you for your care and consideration during g Mum’s funeral, it was so beautifully handled our thanks to all involved. It was a beautiful occasion. Once again thank you for your professionalism and your friendship.
Thank you so much for guiding us through the funeral for Ruby. It all went so well and it was good to see the extended family and Ruby’s friends. Verity said on the way home “I don’t know why, but I feel better about it all now” – and that, as we said, is why you do these things – a time to remember and then look forward.”
“To Georgie, Lisa & colleagues, Simon, Gary & myself would like to thank you both for making our Mum’s funeral service very special and for all the support you gave us throughout that very sad period. Everybody said what a lovely, personal service it was…which it was. So thank you from us all.”
“To Sally and the whole team at Coghlans
We wanted to write and thank you all for the very professional, compassionate and respectful way that you conducted our late mother’s funeral arrangements. This was right from the start when Tom and his colleague attended Parker Meadows to transfer mum to your Chapel of Rest. Sally was meticulously helpful with us when making arrangements for the funeral services and suggesting ideas that we hadn’t even thought of. The staff prepared mum beautifully on the occasions we came to visit her in the Chapel of Rest. Georgie was very patient with us in the design of, and the amendments to the order of service, as well as curating the appropriate music and facilitating the visual tribute for the crematorium. On the day of the funeral, it was so touching for Mum to be driven past Parker Meadows and ‘walked’ past her home in Scafell Avenue. Sally co-ordinated every aspect for the funeral perfectly and it was so reassuring when she regularly appeared in front of us to lead us on to the next stage.
Mum was shown dignity and respect at all times, as we were and for that we are immensely grateful.
We are so pleased we chose Coghlans.
Sincere thanks to every member of the team.”
“We would like to thank you all for such a professional service that you did for us, from start to finish. It made the whole process run so smoothly.”
“Thank you for your help arranging my uncle’s funeral as it wasn’t as straight forward as normal arrangements. You dealt with the paperwork and arrangements completely, professionally and with care. Thank you.”
“Dear Tom & team
Thank you for your compassion and kindness in connection with the funeral of my late father. Your guidance through the whole “business of death” process was, whilst professional and efficient, never rushed and always sensitive and caring.
I was personally dreading the entire experience on top of losing my lovely Dad, but from the initial our of hours and surreal phone call to Tom, you have all provided faultless service. It was an emotional day but everything you organised was absolutely perfect for my Dad, and I cannot express enough the importance of your quiet, dignified and reassuring presence.”
“Thank you so much for everything. You were all fantastic.”
“Dear Kevin, Sally & team
Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the professionalism that you demonstrated in the way in which you handled our mum’s funeral. We were particularly grateful for the many ways you took some of the stress away from us at a time that could be particularly challenging. Thanks again.”
