About Us

    About Diamond & Son Funeral Directors

    Established in 1856, we are the longest serving funeral directors in Lymington, serving Lymington, Beaulieu, Brockenhurst, Sway, Milford on Sea and the surrounding areas. 

    The team at our Lymington funeral home will provide advice at every stage of the funeral planning process, and will arrange an individual and unique funeral to help you celebrate the life of your loved one. 

    Here at Diamond & Son Funeral Directors we also offer an affordable prepaid funeral plan, Choice, so that you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance. This will protect your family from rising costs and remove uncertainty about your wishes.

    If you would like to talk to us about planning a funeral, or our Choice plan, please come and see us in any of our funeral homes, or if you’d rather we can arrange a home visit. We’re also available 24 hours a day on the phone so if you need anything please don’t hesitate to call your local funeral home.

    Meet the Team

    Andrew Lavin

    Funeral Director

    Andrew has been with Diamond & Son Funeral Directors since 2009, having previously worked for a manufacturing company running CNC turret presses.
    He says “I enjoy helping our clients through some of the toughest days of their lives and seeing them out the other side with hopefully a smile on their faces when they know that they have done everything they could for their loved ones”.
    He grew up in Kenya in the mid nineteen seventies when the wild was truly wild and you could see lions and elephants every day.
    He enjoys riding his motorbike as much as he can. He also plays golf, but says “what seems to be my main hobby at the moment is being a taxi driver to my kids!”
