Your best interests are the priority of everyone who works with us
In a modern world of big business and corporate companies it is sometimes difficult to maintain the personal touch and give the service that was once expected from everyone. Waterside Funeral Home try to preserve that standard that was set by our predecessors. To that end, our staff are all local residents who know the local traditions and are familiar with the Holbury & Hythe, Hampshire Churches and Clergy. It helps us to help you when you are arranging a funeral service for someone special and who is dear to you.
Barbara has been with Funeral Partners since 2014, having previously worked in administration with Solicitors, Mortgages, Hampshire Police (Child Protection) and a short period of Self Employment working for Estate Agents.
She enjoys the variety in her work, the contact with others and the challenges that her role brings.
She says “I am on the Southampton Committee for the Royal British Legion. I have been involved with the Legion since 2006, being a welfare caseworker for nearly eleven years and then when the system for welfare changed I helped more on the committee. I have represented the Southampton Branch of the Royal British Legion at conferences, both at County and National level for the last 7 years.”
“The things I am most proud of in my life are my four children. They are wonderful human beings, have beautiful hearts and I would choose them as my best friends.”
She likes to travel, work in the garden and spend time with her ‘ever growing’ family.
Lynne has been with Funeral Partners since 2011, having previously worked as a florist and care provider.
She enjoys the variety in her work, knowing that the clients are pleased with how the funeral and arrangements went and trying to accommodate certain request they put forward, knowing I tried to do my best to make sure everything went as well as it could under the circumstances.
She has climbed the 3 tallest mountains in England Snowdon Wales, Scarfell Pike Lake District and Ben Nevis Scotland.
She says ” I would like to do another Skydive. I did my 1st in 2014 for the poppy appeal and I jumped out of a plane at 15,000ft. Next I would like to go the USA and do a higher jump as it isn’t possible in the UK.”
She enjoys walking/hiking, climbing, gardening, skiing and being outdoors whenever possible.
