Tapper Funeral Service has completed a substantial investment which has seen the family-run business convert existing farm buildings at its Harbour View Woodland Burial Ground in Lytchett Minster, Dorset.

The new conversion has allowed the funeral company to offer a full range of services and facilities including chapels of rest, an innovative service chapel and new staff offices.

The investment means Tapper Funeral Service can now offer clients a comprehensive approach to a funeral, whereby they can have the service, followed by the burial and return to the barn for refreshments.

The interior of the chapel has been decorated to reflect the four seasons and uses colours to complement the surrounding grounds at Harbour View.

Steven Tapper, joint managing director at Tapper Funeral Service, said: “The new farm buildings will be a worthwhile investment for Harbour View Woodland Burial Ground. The rustic conversion complements the atmospheric tone we have set to create at Harbour View.

“We can now offer families much more control with the arrangements of a funeral, they can choose the service they wish for and have the opportunity for the chapel to be personalised to commemorate their loved one.”
