Dean Maddison 9th Jan 2018

I cannot put in words how amazing Andrew Grey and his team were looking after us for our mothers funeral. The care and attention was sublime and personal and certainly not a corporate affair. Andrew is a true gent who makes you feel that your loved ones are truest cared for. He speaks from the heart and made sure everything was looked after with regular updates running up to the service. The ceremony for my mother was outstanding and very professional. I would like to personally thank Andrew and his team for looking after us so well and that if there was anything that we needed he was always at the other end of the phone. I would certainly recommend Andrew Grey
