I cannot thank M.Garton & Son Funeral Directors enough for all of their expert guidance and absolute kindness on arranging the funeral of my beloved Mum recently. It was going to prove particularly difficult for me as I live in Devon and Mum was in a home in Yorkshire, however Lee from Garton's "walked " me through every step of the way and I cannot thank him enough for all of his help and professionalism. Every member of Garton's staff who I encountered along the way treated me as if I was the only person they had to deal with and NOTHING was too much trouble and I was never hurried in any way at all. So ,Five Star Service from absolute 5 Star Staff. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. Kindest Regards Carole. Gorbutt.

Upon the recent bereavement of my wonderful mother, I had feared the task, arrangement and organisation of the funeral and all that it would entail. I had been recommended from a family member that I would be in safe and expert hands with M. Garton and sons. I can say without hesitation that the support, guidance and compassion that we have received has no doubt made the whole process so much more bearable. Glad to say that with your help, we were able to give my mother the wonderful send off that she so deserved and I can only say thank you for ensuring, certainly on my part, flawless support. Thank you once again. Mark Blackwell.

Steve and his team were excellent. Very caring and compassionate. He talked us through all the arrangements with great sensitivity . He kept in touch right until the funeral to make sure everything went smoothly, which it did. I would have no hesitation in recommending J. Ribbons Funeral Services .

From the advice and the options offered to us at our first meeting to the logistics on the day of the funeral itself, my brother and I found M Garton & Sons to be a model of customer service. They respected the decisions we made, accepted it when we changed our minds and, generally, nothing was too much trouble for them. Losing a parent is a difficult and stressful time and the staff there understood that implicitly. They made it stress free for us and as pleasant an experience as one possibly can in such circumstances. The entire team was excellent and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to others.

Gartons looked after my dad three years ago and recently my mum. They were brilliant, not an easy time for anyone but they were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I was never rushed into making any decisions and would highly recommend them.
