All the team at cherish did a fabulous job. They tailor made the funeral and made us feel cherished. Helen is so caring and did a fantastic job with the printed order of service and all the organising. Beautiful flowers. Tim came in on his day off to walk mum out as he had done so at my dad’s funeral. Karen, the celebrant did a great service and we said goodbye with laughter as well as tears, which is just what mum would have wanted. The bearers and drivers did a great job too. All very respectful and professional as well as with great compassion. Thank you cherish team.

  • 5 Darren McKay 25th Mar 2024

    The team at Cherish did a wonderful job, amazingly supportive thinking of all the finer details and helping the family to deal with these at our most difficult time.

    The team made sure everything went as smoothly as possible on the day of the funeral, leaving the family to focus on our loved one who’d passed.

    Special mention for Helen who was amazing from start to finish, we would have struggled without her expert advice and support.

    Thank you.

  • 5 Maureen Edwards 22nd Mar 2024

    I would definitely recommend Cherish Funerals. I had to start arranging my son’s funeral from Australia before, we travelled to Swadlincote. I chose Cherish Funeral Directors because the website was clear and displayed all costings in a spread sheet. I was so happy I chose your funeral company for my son Shaun’s funeral. The customer service was excellent and everything exceeded my expectations, everything ran smoothly which was good because this was my first experience organising a funeral. Thank you all once again for your wonderful service. Cheers Maureen.

  • 5 Monica Garratt 14th Mar 2024

    We were exacting in our requirements; we received excellent guidance and had precisely the service (in every sense of the word) that we wished for our dear Father. Professional in every way; from the initial meeting on their premises with Helen right up to the final contact when Matt as he handed over Orders of Service and list of attendees. We were treated with patience and compassion without feeling we were any trouble to any member of staff. Thank you. Sadly we know we will require such services again and we know precisely where we shall come for the proceedings. With our kindest regards,

    Monica Garratt on behalf of John Adams and the Family Adams

Highly recommended.

    As soon as we met with Helen, we knew that Cherish were the right people to take care of mum. Their support and communication all the way through was faultless. On the day of mum's funeral, Matt was incredibly supportive and it meant so much having him there, checking on us throughout. I would highly recommend Cherish to take care of your loved ones and you during a difficult time. They made things feel a little easier.

    The service and support provided far exceeded our expectations. We really appreciated all the 'small details' that were taken care of for us at such a difficult time. Helen was so helpful, patient and she has such talent at producing the order of service. The whole team was great.

  • 5 Jennifer Brown 23rd Oct 2023

    Could not ask for better care and service from all the staff at Cherish, especially Helen who was absolutely lovely.
    I felt like they completely took all the stress and worry away from the moment I first spoke to them. I really appreciated the extra care and details Helen made with things like the Order Of Service. I also want to give a special thanks to Tim, who stepped in at the last minute to do the service.
    I wholeheartedly recommend Cherish Funeral Directors to anyone considering them.
