Everyone was so kind, courteous and sympathetic! Everything ran like clockwork and it took all the stress away from us at this difficult time, thank you! 

Lydia Jackson 3rd Jul 2023

The team were caring and professional. We couldn’t have asked for a better funeral director than Natalie whose empathy and respect was so important to us. Their recommendation for the Celebrant again was perfect.

Rosie Hatwell 22nd Jun 2023

Totally in shock by the unexpected death of my Husband 300miles from home I called Cowleys for help. The support & care I got was outstanding. They helped me through the process one step at a time. Always at the end of the phone if I had any questions or concerns. We had a meeting to discuss what type of funeral we wanted & nothing was too much trouble. They arranged for his body to be collected & taken to a CO-OP for embalming where he died before arranging for his body to be brought back to our local area. Several of us went to view his body in the chapel of rest  & they had got him spot on. Dressed in his favourite clothes he looked relaxed & asleep. Far better than I could ever have hoped for. The funeral was very busy & the crematorium was packed. Everyone was telling me it was the best funeral they’d ever been to. Not only did my Husband get the best care, my whole family did. I would certainly recommend Cowleys Funeral Directors in Stony Stratford 100%

    The initial service was good as was the service on the actual funeral day but the service we received in the middle left a lot to be desired.

  • 5 Mark Nurse 25th Jan 2023

    What can I say that probably hasn't already been mentioned about Natalie and her team..
    A process that initially seemed so daunting, emotional and stressful made absolutely stress free by the fabulous Natalie and her wonderful colleagues.
    From pickup to drop off of my beautiful father, love and respect all the way through the process of saying our last goodbyes.
    My family and I couldn't thank them enough for all of their help and consideration.
    5 stars from start to finish.
    Thank you so very much. ❤️❤️❤️

    Natalie, Katie and the team went out of their way to make a difficult situation run without a hitch. From my first meeting with Katie right through to the day of the funeral nothing was too much trouble and everything was done according to my Aunt’s wishes. Natalie and her team were fantastic on the day of the funeral and everyone was so professional and respectful of my Aunt and our family. Thank you from us all, you’ve been amazing x
