We have used M. Garton and Son for seven family funerals over the past 40 years and nothing has changed. It is still a family run business who show such compassion, dedication, care, kindness and, above all, great professionalism which is second to none along with an amazing, personal service. We would never, ever use any other funeral directors. We just can`t imagine any other funeral directors topping them! They treat your loved one as their own. This is a fact. We just can`t recommend them highly enough. They show such commitment to you. We can guarantee that you will be in their extremely capable hands from beginning to end.......nothing is too much trouble. We really can`t stress this enough. Thank you Gartons - you really are the best!

I cannot recommend enough Garton&Son's funeral service. I was so impressed by how they went out of their way at every corner to help navigate me through the preparations. It left me feeling stress free and at ease. There were so many helpful suggestions and going out of their way for things to help me that I had not imagined. They came to our home, in no way did I feel any type of 'business' even though there were lots of details to take care of, the whole process was handled with great sensitivity. Malcolm called me at home to help me with things I didn't know how to do. They helped my elderly father taking him to register and then delivered the flowers after the service to donate to the home knowing we had no transport. Nothing was any trouble to them at all. They went out of their way to make sure it was just 'plain sailing' and I felt a lot of care and sincerity. Fraser was exceptional at his job. On the day of the service having Eric in Fraser's place felt comfortable as I felt they were so professional and the caring was continuous. Visiting their office, I felt the atmosphere was very peaceful and Julia's service too, was impeccable. For these times you need people with sincerity and maturity such as Garton's. This is a  company that fulfilled all my expectations. I want to thank Fraser, Eric and Julia from the bottom of my heart.  Susan Holmes
