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.

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

    Thank you so much once again for a very professional service, and making a really difficult time that little bit easier, we always know we can totally put our trust in you and wouldn't go anywhere else.
    Great communication, such empathetic and compassionate people, thank you so much.

  • 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

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

  • 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

  • 5 Ian Hatton 4th Nov 2019

  • 5 Georgina Swift 26th Sep 2019

  • 5 Rik Gaynor 15th Jul 2019

    John Davies and all his staff go above and beyond to help at such sad times, we cannot thank them all enough for helping give my Brother a wonderful send off!  

  • 5 Laura Taylor 9th May 2019

    I can not thank Mark enough for all his support during this very sad time, nothing has been too much trouble for him, everything was fully explained, communication was excellent, I was kept fully informed of the whole process with regular contact, I was welcomed to visit my son whenever I wanted and everything I asked for was fulfilled.

    Mark really cares and shows huge empathy, he makes things as easy as he can for you, he doesn't pressure you into doing anything and doesn't try to exploit you in your most vulnerable time i.e trying to make you spend more money, (in fact quite the opposite).

    Excellent service from start to finish, I can not fault them at all and would highly recommend them.

    Thankyou so much Mark for all your help and support and for treating Callum with dignity and respect, you have been amazing.
