Everything was carried out with great care and respect,I could not had asked for a more dignified farewell to my Linda

Nick Heath 2nd Apr 2021

Katie & Rob, along with Brian, the celebrant, provided an absolutely outstanding service. Throughout the whole process, they were there 24 hours a day when needed. They were calm and reassuring, came up with creative solutions to solve complicated family issues and, somehow, managed to make the day of the funeral a fond memory for all involved. I can’t ever thank them enough for their kindness and understanding in what has been such a sad time.  It felt like dealing with close family members rather than funeral directors and I highly recommend their service. 

Aimee Terry 1st Apr 2021

I’d like to thank Katie, Rob and Matilda for all of their help arranging and conducting my dads funeral service. Never having been in this sort of position before and not knowing what to do, I knew from the minute I stepped through the door that, Dad would be here, I can’t thank them enough for their professionalism, the care and love they put in for me and my two sisters. I know that Dad was in the best place, they put no pressure on me, there was no upfront costs which really helped my position, and were so kind from the first phone call. Everything was done so smoothly, the team looked great.  They put us at ease through a very traumatic time, they went above and beyond. I’ll never use anyone else again, they are all such lovely people and I would 100% recommend to anyone! Thank you so much for all of your help and compassion at this hard time. Love Aimee X

    Katie & Rob were so caring and provided a personal, professional and bespoke funeral for our father.   Nothing was too much trouble and    the attention to detail was  outstanding from the  very beginning right through to  the day of the funeral itself.  We would recommended  them 100%.  

  • 5 Jack Oliver 23rd Jan 2021

    Katie was unbelievably good, respectful and ensured we gave a wonderful send off to my aunt. She organised everything that was required and made you feel that nothing was too much. The prices were broken down and transparent with no hidden costs. She was extremely Covid aware during the day of the ceremony and ensured there was as little risk as possible. I could not recommend her more.

Katie made sure she understood exactly what it was that I was looking for and made sure that was what I got. Nothing was too much trouble and at no time did I ever feel rushed, Katie made time just to sit and listen, when that was what I needed most.

    My family and I would truly thank Katie Mills for her dedicated care of Mr Robin Hayward. It is very refreshing to see and witness an Independant Funeral Directors ethics are genuine, in respect that they truly care for the deceased and the whole family. Their pricing policy is clear and concise with no hidden unnecessary charges or up-selling! Katie Mills and her team are kind and mindful people serving our local community at their greatest time of need. We highly recommended and will employ Katie's services again, but hopefully not too soon in the future!!

  • 5 Paul Moore 14th Nov 2020

    Very impressed at the personal service given by Katie Mills and her partner. A calm and relaxed desire to please at your pace with no pressure selling. Nice newly decorated offices and elegant viewing rooms. Willing to adapt, give options and alter arrangements without a fuss. On the day everything was perfect, professionally & smartly delivered and at a very reasonable price. An exemplar organisation that others can only hope to aspire to. I wish Katie every success for the future and have no hesitation in recommending.

  • 5 Zak Theobold 3rd Sep 2020

    Katie and Rob were totally professional, sympathetic, respectful and above all else very approachable. They both helped us through the worst of times and in our opinion went the extra mile for us. All our mums wishes were carried out to the letter. We highly regard them and would recommend them to anyone who needs them. 

    Katie Mills replied
    Thank you George for your kind words. We both wish you all the very best. Best wishes Katie & Rob

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. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers.

What are disbursements?

How can I get help with funeral costs?
