Becky James 13th Sep 2019

The whole process, from start to completion was smooth, professional and calm. I was made to feel special, as if my grief and mother's funeral was top of their agenda. Communication was superb, quick and kind. Everything I could want arranged was. Thankyou for making what is an incredibly upsetting time into a dignified, special, honourable time for me, mom and my family. Totally recommend M.Sillifant.

  • 5 Hilary McCormick 28th Jul 2019

    Mr Sillifant was excellent through the whole process. He put Mum at ease about the funeral and cremation. He even stepped up and lead the ceremony when the celebrant (Ian Huxam) didn’t turn up. I would recommend this company wholeheartedly.

    At this sad time, we were relieved to find that at least some of our tasks were dealt with efficiently, promptly and kindly by Sillifants. We cannot find fault with anything they did, from the great cars we rode in to organising the actual burial. They were always there to answer questions in a pleasant and reassuring way. Thank you Sillifants - you were perfect.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details.
