Fantastic service and lovely people. Had no issues at all and would highly recommend. Offered great flexibility and really went above and beyond what i was expecting during such a difficult time. I very quickly knew i had made the right decision in choosing them!

I can't thank Keith and Jen enough for the help and support they have given me and my family during our tragic time of not only losing our Mother but our Step Father too. Nothing was too much trouble for them even urging us to pick up the phone no matter what time; day or night if there was anything troubling us. The chapel of rest was the most lovely peaceful room and we were happy to have our parents rest there before the funeral. Keith made sure everything we'd asked for after the funeral was brought back and passed on to us. Keith and Jen took a lot of the worry and stress out of what was already a difficult time, even helping us with the obituary which helped us a lot as we'd never been through anything similar before. As a family we will be sure to let everyone know how wonderful they were and will recommend Saint and Forster to anyone who has a difficult time to come. Thank you so much Keith and Jen .

Firstly, you’ve misspelled the name of the deceased. Not a good start. However the attention to detail and their care and kindness could not be bettered. Can confidently recommend them.

From our very first conversation, and throughout the arrangements made for my brother Paul's funeral, I found Saint and Forster to be extremely helpful and sensitive. They were very informative, empathetic and were consumate professionals, keen to ensure a high quality and bespoke service. I would have no hesitation in recommending these funeral directors and am very grateful for all their kind help and assistance during this difficult, upsetting time. Thank you for your kindness and support. Much appreciated!
