Made my first experience of arranging a funeral really easy and relaxed. As an only child of my late father I had to do everything… however the funeral directors constantly checked how I was getting on, plus helping with the other major things of dads affairs I had to do… 5 star service

Most of the arrangements were carried out in a most excellent and professional manner, particularly on the day of the funeral.  However some of the early administrative arrangements showed a lack of experience, record keeping and continuity which meant I had to correct some misunderstandings on order to ensure accuracy.

  • 5 Deana Philpotts 23rd May 2022

    I cannot recommend J S Cowley highly enough. The staff were excellent and guided us through the funeral arrangements seamlessly. Katie listened to what we wanted and chose a wonderful celebrant for the service. She was the perfect choice. All the staff were fantastic and highly professional. We would like to give special thanks to funeral director Natalie who was made sure that everything went flawlessly on the day and was very supportive

  • 4 Christine Guest 17th May 2022

    All staff very kind. Special thanks to Natalie for stepping in at the last minute . It was a shame Anne wasnt back in Stony Stratford before the night before the funeral - as more people wanted to see her. Changes to the burial site etc. not advised until it was too late to question them. Other than that all good.

  • 4 Caroline Daniells 31st Mar 2022

    Pleased with arrangements & how we were dealt with. Katie & others were helpful & sympathetic with our wishes & were contacted with updates. Last minute panic regarding stand for picture but Katie resolved night before service. Please, please for others in future check how good the vicar is for simply reading a eulogy & for organising music in the church. I know this was down to the church not Cowleys but it's all part of the day & Cowleys putting me onto that vicar. I have regrets that I'm trying to move on from. Don't let someone else feel as I do.

  • 5 Tanya Lincoln 28th Mar 2022

    It’s a great shame more thought wasn’t applied to this survey as my mum’s name has been spelled incorrectly!!!

    Many thanks to Katie, Ruth and Julie for all their kind assistance.

  • 5 Patrick Lewis 10th Jan 2022

    The J.S.Cowley and Son were excellent, providing support for us through a very difficult time and making the process of arranging and holding the funeral as straight forward as it could possibly be.

  • 4 Peter Howard 29th Dec 2021

    Cowleys have always been our funeral directors of choice.
    They continue to offer a sensitive service.


    This time as no different. The only issue we had related to the staff shortages and this meant that we were often put through to an alternative office. This caused delay and often we spoke with people who did not know our case sometimes causing us a little upset. They were still kind though. We of course understand the issues with staff shortages at this time.

    The day itself went without a hitch and was as lovely as these things can be.

  • 5 Margaret Russell 29th Dec 2021

    I highly recommend JS Cowley as they couldn't be more helpful and willing to assist in all stages of the arrangements, working together with the funeral arranger and celebrant services to provide a special and unique committal to remember.
