An excellent company that I couldn’t recommend enough. Nothing was too much trouble from start to finish and all our wishes were catered for. Very professional but also friendly staff. Highly recommended.

Karen Morden 26th May 2023

From initial contact the support and service has been outstanding. I had so many questions as this was the first funeral I have had to organise, every question was answered with care and compassion during a very emotional time. Nothing was too much trouble to ensure that my dads funeral was exactly as we, the family wanted it to be.

Amanda Bouvier 26th Mar 2023

From start to finish, John was amazing. Mark was also really helpful in responding to my queries while John was away, and Diane who conducted our mum’s service was absolutely fantastic. Mum had her entire funeral planned with Flints, and all of  her wishes for how she wanted her funeral to be were honoured and respected by Flints. Claire also prepared the most beautiful wreaths for us. On the day that my brother and I visited the Chapel of Rest ahead of mum’s funeral, John was very comforting and respectful. There was absolutely nothing at all that we would change about the way that our darling mum’s service and the subsequent burial of her ashes 2 days later were conducted, and in fact Flints exceeded our expectations. Whilst my brother and I were aware that at the end of the service, John and Diane would bow to mum as the curtains closed, there were a couple of lovely, memorable things that took place after the cars collected us from mum’s house that we weren’t expecting. The way that John walked in front of the car that was carrying mum, all the way down to the bottom of mum’s road and on to the next road, before bowing to mum and getting in to the car was just wonderful. This showed such dignity and respect to mum and we felt so grateful. Sandra, the driver of our car that followed mum’s car was very respectful and we shared some conversation about how long she had worked for Flints. As mum’s coffin was carried in to the crematorium, John and Diane ensured that my brother and I walked behind mum and were seated first before the rest of the family and then the other guests entered the room. John helped my brother and I plan all the logistics of the funeral from the word go,  talking us through the process, helping us decide to create a beautiful photograph slide-show of mum over the years, and explained how the more administrative side of things would work. John was at the Chapel of Rest a few days before the service to welcome us and explain what mum’s resting room would look like before we entered. It was very comforting talking to John after spending time with mum at the Chapel, which helped enormously. John ensured that all of the sentimental items we took to the Chapel were put in to mum’s coffin with her as per our request. John honoured my brother and my wishes for us to keep a portion of mum’s ashes for ourselves ahead of the burial, and ensured that my request for a clip of mum’s hair for me to keep was also honoured.  John ensured that our darling mum was dressed in the nightshirt that belonged to her beloved late sister ahead of the service, and all communication we had with Diane via Zoom and email regarding what we wanted her to say during the service was very easy, and Diane replied promptly to all our emails. We really appreciated the way that John asked us to meet him at the cemetery 5 minutes before the actual burial, as this meant that as my brother lowered mum’s urn in to ground, the church bells rang at 10.00 am. Thank you also to Mark for recommending Mansfield Memorials for mum’s headstone, who we found very helpful and easy to do business with. We could not recommend Flints Funeral Services enough to anyone wishing to give their loved ones a beautiful and dignified send-off. Thank you so very much! Amanda & Ricki & family

    From start to finish the service we received was impeccable. The whole process was carried out in a very professional and dignified manner. Everyone remarked how beautiful the service was and my Mum received the send-off she deserved thanks to John who was very kind, competent, supportive and compassionate during this very difficult time. It was handled sympathetically with great attention to detail, we could not have asked for more. Very efficient and faultless throughout. I want to take the opportunity to say "Thank you". If you want a professional and caring service then I would recommend W Flint Funeral Service.

  • 5 Adrian Warren 9th Sep 2022

    They have been fantastic during this hard time. I would 100% recommend

  • 5 Alison Morley 27th Aug 2022

    We have been very happy in how very professional and supportive Flints have been. They have been supportive from the first appointment to the day of the funeral could not have asked for a better service.

  • 5 Angela Whitmore 1st Aug 2022

    This was the fourth funeral that Flints provided for us within as many years. Obviously if they were not excellent each time then we would not have kept going back for their services. Professional but friendly and compassionate.

  • 5 Richard Hutchings 18th Mar 2022

    I cannot praise W. Flint highly enough, nor thank them enough for all they have done for my mother and I. We have been helped by John and Mark the past few weeks, and they are both absolutely brilliant, professional, and totally compassionate in every aspect of what they do. From planning the service to the funeral day itself, W. Flint have made the entire process very easy, and have exceeded our expectations at every step.

    I can not express how caring and professional W. Flint Funeral Services were. John and his team walked us through every step, for which we can not thank him enough at such a difficult time.
    Thank you.

  • 5 George Holling 31st May 2021

    It's heartbreaking losing a loved one and organising a funeral is a daunting task.
    We were fortunate that we chose W.Flint funeral services.
    From the original phone call, to the first meeting with John we were made to feel completely at ease.
    Their professionalism was above and beyond especially in these restricted times.
    They conducted a beautiful service fitting of a wonderful human being we lost.
    Thank you.

  • 5 Caroline Garrigan 14th Mar 2021

    Supportive and professional, always helpful in accommodating requests if possible with current legal restrictions.

  • 5 Laura Taylor 14th Mar 2021

  • 5 Zena Goddard 23rd Jan 2021

    We received exceptional service throughout the whole process with W Flint Funeral Service, as we arranged Dad’s funeral. Their customer service is very considerate and they keep in touch and explain what’s happening every step of the way.
    In the most difficult of circumstances they most definitely helped to support us, and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.
    Thank you to all the team for your support x

    John and his team were fantastic. From the initial contact John was with us on the phone and zoom helping us and guiding us. On the day everything was perfect as can be on a very sad day , the flowers,the cars and the celebrant Diane that John guided us to was absolutely wonderful and did an excellent job. From the first phone call to the final farewell we were treated professionally and so very caring and dad was treated with the most upmost respect all the way. From the family we can't thank you enough

  • 5 Mim Machray 9th Jul 2020

    I can’t thank John enough for helping to send Dad off.

    Thankyou.

  • 5 Ian Talbot 14th May 2020

    Excellent service, every employee of Flints we came in contact with went above and beyond. They were all professional, respectful, kind and compassionate. Nothing was too much trouble even the last minute changes. Mark even made a stunning floral arrangement for us as no florists were open due to coronavirus lockdown. Thank you so much from Michelle Outram daughter of the late Christine Talbot. 

  • 5 Susan Miles 21st Apr 2020

    I can honestly say they are all fantastic they do every thing to help you and make your sad day as best as they can I'm so gratefull to John for all his help they are truly an amazing funeral directors

  • 5 Jennie Jennison 16th Mar 2020

    They have managed all of our funerals. Wouldn’t go anywhere else now, they are all so supportive, caring and passionate while being professional. This was the first time I had personally had a more involved role of planning a funeral and John was brilliant from the moment I phoned. Nothing was too much trouble and he sat with me for long periods of time talking, planning and answering questions over the period of planning.  Our loved one was so beautifully taken care of and the service was lovely. I know it’s a job to them but they never made us feel like it’s their job but that they are helping us to say goodbye to our loved one if that makes sense. 

  • 5 Susan Barlow 24th Jan 2020

    We cannot thank John Davis enough for all his help and compassion at this very sad time, also Claire thank you for being so kind , a lovely lady

  • 5 Caroline Garrigan 19th Nov 2019

    Flints have been part of our community for the whole of my lifetime but this was the first time I’d had to plan a funeral! How comforting and professional every step of the way. Everything we wanted to celebrate the life of my husband was delivered with the upmost sympathy. Everyone that attended felt Malc was there, I remember the ceremony with love not sadness. Very professional and sympathetic Flints! THANKYOU
