Neil Worthy 4th Jul 2021

Greys service was second to none. Nothing was any bother to them. They helped us in every part of mams final time. Andrew allowed me to walk alongside him as we left home & into the crematorium as my own personal respect. I was allowed to provide my own personal eulogy with Jean standing by incase I couldn't, just to step in & finish if needed. Jean herself was amazing Even now we are still receiving the best of help to complete mams perfect send off. My heartfelt thanks & love go to Andrew & kay, & the other staff we never met but helped on our hardest day.

Norma Mechen 3rd Feb 2021

A big thank you to Andrew Grey Directors. First of all we would like to thank Ben for the guidance, care, support and compassion he showed us throughout our loss. Stan will never be forgotten by each and everyone of us, he will remain in our hearts forever.  Andrew and the team were totally professional. Andrew, what a man, he showed dignity, compassion and total respect to Stan. The best care we could have dreamed of. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Forever grateful, Norma, Debbie, Julie and family.

Helen Cossar 23rd Jan 2021

From the very beginning of our stressful journey navigating both the planning of an unexpected funeral and the impact of Covid 19, everyone at Andrew Grey has treated us with respect, warmth and understanding. They have been professional and meticulous in every aspect of the planning and have accommodated us during the ever changing Covid guidelines. Being local to the area has been a massive help, we all speak the same language which has been a huge comfort during the planning and delivery of a fitting and respectful funeral. Thank you Andrew, Kay, Ben and Chris.
