    As previously the staff were excellent in their knowledge and needs of the client.
    Dad had a pre-paid plan which he and my late mother had chosen together, their wishes were full filled completely and efficiently at the same time as involving myself and my brother to add bits as we saw fit. I would recommend the company.

    From meeting Tracy, she went through everything in detail with us, very helpful, sympathetic and caring, we were very at ease with her and she couldn't do more for us and Tracy has even contacted my Mum to see how she is, which is a touching gesture couldn't recommend and praise Gill and Eales enough they went above and beyond to ensure we had the wonderful send off for my Dad.

    I would certainly recommend them. 

  • 5 Brian Roy Stevens 17th May 2022

    At a time when emotions are all over the place and you’re not sure of what to do or where to go next, Gill and Eales helped in every way possible, over and above their regular remit ,the staff guided us through all the procedures and legal requirements needed. All this was done with care, thoughtfulness and patience. 
    A very special touch from the funeral entourage was that they chose  to wear co-ordinated ties to match our late Mothers chosen colour scheme.
    Gill and Eales did our late Mother and family proud.
    Thanks again.
    Brian Stevens and family .
