About Deric Scott Bournemouth

  • Principal Funeral Director, Jack Stanisstreet serves this funeral home along with Funeral Directors Kate Bartlett and Jackie Buckingham.
  • When visiting our funeral home, you’ll likely be welcomed by our Funeral Arranger Administrator Mark Willmott and, Funeral Arranger Administrator and Embalmer Hayley Trim, MBIE.
  • James Eveleigh is our first, fully trained Celebrant at this funeral home.
  • Jackie regularly hosts a ‘Never Alone’ activity group on the 2nd Tuesday of every month in Bournemouth. The aim is to support local people struggling with loneliness. For more information on this initiative see our local Bournemouth Community Engagement Facebook page.
