Welcome to Hunnaball of Norwich Road, Ipswich

Dove House was opened in 1996, and is known for our ‘Ladies in Hats’ team of lady funeral directors. 

Their unique reputation for providing funerals with the gentle touch is firmly established within Ipswich and all the villages nearby.  

Our lady funeral directors are dedicated to offering the very best, professional, and sympathetic guidance at what is one of the most challenging times in anyone’s life. There are so many necessary formalities and practical arrangements that must be dealt with, and we will help you in any way we are able.  

We uphold the traditional values of respect and dignity, combined with elegance and caring compassion, and are supported by our team of gentlemen. 

Everyone who must organise a funeral, whether for a loved one or friend, needs the best possible support, as well as access to the essential services we provide. We do it all with compassion and care, complementing the other crucial services offered by doctors, health professionals, clergy, and others. 

Our funeral directors, as well as our first response team, offer remarkable practical support, and are on call 24 hours a day, every day of the year.  

Our Norwich Road branch is staffed during office hours, with onsite parking.

A funeral is a traditional rite of passage, and is part of the grieving process. A meaningful funeral service helps people to cope with loss, to comfort each other, and to celebrate a life. The ceremony can take many forms, and can be religious or non-religious. What is important is that it is the right choice for the person who has died, and for their family and friends.
