Mr Eric Conley 4th Apr 2018

We were so impressed by Fiona, the way she handled everything was wonderful. She made things so much easier for us. She is such a lovely caring person, she made something that could have been so hard and difficult so much easier to get through. Everything went just has it  was planned. So overall very impressed and happy that the day was so successful.

Wendy Devonish 3rd Apr 2018

Mrs Phillippa Bradley 13th Mar 2018

We were very pleased with all aspects of the funeral before and afterwards. The service in the office was excellent and very efficient. The Funeral staff on the day were all very kind, caring and sympathetic and we really could not fault anything. Would certainly recommend your services to anyone else in the future.
