I would definitely recommend Sillifants funeral directors . The service they provided was excellent from start to finish . They were very efficient in helping me to organise my fathers funeral and guided me through each step which helped to make a very emotional time more bearable for us as a family. Nothing was too much trouble for them and on the day reassured our sons as the palbearers. I can't thank them enough.

We could not have had more understanding, caring and helpful service from M Sillifant & Sons.  We mainly dealt with Mark, but had brief conversations with his other colleagues as well.  At such difficult times as this, you need someone who can just take care of everything for you, they certainly did that.

    Sillifant,s dealt very well with my Mother's funeral two yeras ago and so I did not hesitate to use them again when my Father died recently. Yet again they delivered an excellent service at a very reasonable cost. I would recommend them to anyone near Exeter and the south west. For both my parents they supplied a tailored service that was just right. Nigel Bristol.

    Can only say thank you so much to the amazing team, and especially to Martin. From the offset he was re-assuring, helpful and comforting. It was so good to know that we were going to be able to give my Uncle the great send off he so rightly deserved and Martin and the team ensured this absolutely happened, from the very beginning to the very end - thank you.
