I was very impressed with the service we received from Gartons. My Aunt had taken out a funeral plan (which I strongly recommend), and from my first phone call to them when she died, I knew that Eric and his colleagues would look after us all very efficently. His advice and support was very welcome.

Louise Dixon 29th Mar 2021

Fantastic service. Having never had to do this before Lee & his colleagues guided us every step of the way. We were dealt with with the upmost respect and sensitivity at all times and nothing was too much trouble. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gartons.

Denise Smith 18th Feb 2021

As always Gartons have been professional, sensitive and efficient. They are our families choice when looking for a local dependable service. It has been particularly difficult with COVID-19 restrictions but Gartons have ensured everything ran smoothly and we were kept fully informed throughout the arrangements. We as a family really appreciate their sensitivity and empathy. Specially Eric who corresponded with Rev Tony Cotson and with him also corresponding with my husband Vics manager at Hull City Council ensuring Vics final wishes to have the cortege drive through Hull Interchange. Eric has been particularly helpful throughout a most difficult time for me and our family. We as a family highlighly recommend this funeral directors. Many thanks to them Denise Smith

    We have used Gartons since 1980 when we first lost my Dad. Over the years I’ve lost my sister & niece, aunties, uncles & mum and through all of this, I cannot fault their service and compassion and would not look to use any other funeral directors. 

  • 5 Lisa Scarr 17th Sep 2020

    Excellent service for my dads funeral . Kind compassionate and caring curteous and professional. My dad had a great send off Thank you

  • 5 Tracey Arnell 20th Aug 2020

    Excellant service throughout. At such a sad time Gartons were there every step of the way, liasing with the family and making all the necessary arrangements.

  • 5 Karen Ellis 9th Jun 2020

    We used M Garton & Sons for the funeral of my dad Donald Simpson and found they went above and beyond what we expected. The services we were offered was done with such care and understanding to our needs and genuine respect for my dad. This was given by all members of staff from the two gentlemen who came to collect my dad from our home, who even paused at the doorway so my bedbound daughter could say her final goodbyes, to Lee, who works at the Hessle High Road office, who could not of been more professional and caring. He made me feel reassured that dad was been looked after by speaking to him, ensuring dad was dressed how he would of wanted and making my visits to dad as comforting as possible. I would especially like to mention Lee for filming the entire service when the webcast was broken, so my bedbound daughter and others who could not attend due to the current covid pandemic could still watch the service. I cannot praise their highly professional and caring services enough. Daughter Karen Ellis

    I undertook the arranging of my Mother's funeral at short notice. I was very pleased to find Garton and Son's website. Everything was clearly laid out, including costs- this was very important for myself, I did not want to be calling round multiple funeral directors at that time. From first point of contact, Garton and Son's approach was spot on. They guided me through this painful process with just the right level of assistance. I was consulted and kept informed, without feeling hassled, at every stage. They did my Mother proud.

  • 5 Susan Coulson 20th Feb 2020

    I cannot praise M Garton & Sons  enough for their support, guidance, thoughtfulness and professionalism during a heartbreaking time when our Mum suddenly passed away.  Eric, in particular, organised the funeral to perfection and took away all the stress at such a difficult time.  We are extremely grateful. 

  • 5 Dawn Shortman 20th Feb 2020

    Me and my dad was so very happy and pleased with the excellent service provided by Frazer at Gartons. From the very beginning of the loss of a Wife and Mum we couldn’t have asked for anything more than the help and understanding from everyone. We know my Mum would have loved everything you did for us under a very difficult time. All me and dad can say is a very big thank you from the bottom of our hearts 

  • 5 Victoria Aitken 11th Feb 2020

    Calm, Friendly, Supportive and no pressure. Thank you Lee.

  • 5 Mandy Catt 6th Feb 2020

    Cannot speak highly enough of Lee who helped and supported me through a very difficult time , the loss of my Dad...the first parent loss and organising a funeral was made I feel much less painful. I felt he was there supporting from the 1st phone call all way through with reassuring phone calls and updates! Their thought and consideration made a perfect farewell and their recommendation of Rachel the celebrant has also to be noted, received such lovely comments on the day about service. Thank you Lee and Rachel superb service !

  • 5 Cheryl Sainty 24th Jan 2020

    A beautiful, professional, traditional service carried out by compassionate, caring people! All my worries were swept away in a big Garton hug. Thank you! 

  • 5 Sara Johns 21st Jan 2020

    I felt the care and support offered by everyone at Gartons to be fantastic. Making arrangements can be a very difficult and distressing time but they take the time to make this as straightforward as possible making the whole situation a lot easier to deal with. On the day of the funeral I found them to be very professional , caring and compassionate from start to finish.

  • 5 Joanne Tasker 21st Jan 2020

    After contacting the funeral directors in the early hours of my dear dad sadly passing away l was given lots of comfort and dad was treated with great dignity and found much comfort to find a beautiful card attached to a  white carnation as dad left for his peaceful rest home...l was then contacted by lee at the Hessle road rest rooms and arranged a visit at my home within a couple of days what a gentleman man he was..we had smiles and a bit of banter ( that’s what dad would of liked) everything was just so perfect from lee coming to leaving l was informed every step of the way. everything we was expecting and more.little personal touches l had asked for, nothing was a task for anyone at this difficult time,flower arrangements was stunning too! If lee was not there to answer my questions at the time l rang his response was immediately responsive...dad’s send was absolutely perfect in every way possible and thank you all for your kind thoughtful and caring service that you have provided for my dear dads new life Kind regards  Love Andrew,Neil and joanne 💙💙

    At a time when you’re not thinking clearly and feeling vulnerable, you’re not in the mindset to plan for an emotional event you’d rather hadn’t happened. Amongst all the offers from family and friends to help, it was the professionalism of the M Garton & Sons team to take control from that initial phone call, that made it bearable. Most things you don’t even know you need to know but Frazer was exceptional at explaining every detail, for every decision, at every stage that mattered. Everything else, they just took care of, so we didn’t have to. I could comment on their excellent level of service, impeccable resting environment, friendly and personable approach; but it was the seamlessness and work behind the scenes that, in retrospect we valued the most. Our focus was able to be firmly where it should have been - with our grief and with our families. I cannot thank them enough for this and their continued success as a locally-owned business is a reflection of the quality and effort the team put in. It is therefore without reservation, I would recommend M Gartons & Sons to you to take care of your loved one with the kindness and utmost care you could only hope for.

  • 5 Helga Cornell 10th Jan 2020

    Lee and his team provided an excellent, personal and very supportive service and I would recommend them to anyone

  • 5 Sally White 4th Jan 2020

    At a time of great distress the service and care we received from Garton's, and in particular Eric, was excellent. This was the fourth family funeral (both mine and my husbands parents) Garton's have handled for us, they have been excellent every time. Due to family members living overseas we asked Garton's to expediate the funeral as quickly as possible, this they managed very quickly working along with Hull Royal Infirmary. If you are looking for a family friendly funeral service look no further than Garton's. I would highly recommend them.

  • 5 Alan Stephenson 15th Dec 2019

    My mother's funeral went off without a hitch. There was good communication with Garton's beforehand which I much appreciated and the comments I had from family and friends afterwards was all very positive. I would recommend them

  • 5 Chris Greenwood 13th Dec 2019

    My mother-in-law bless her had already pre-paid some years ago and set out her requirements, this made the funeral arrangements less onerous. That said, Lee and his team were very supportive, taking the family through the process step by step, helping us with the Service provider and the Order of Service sheets. They provided us with cones to ensure that space for the funeral cars was made available in front of the house, with minimum disruption. On the day of the funeral they were very professional and respectful toward all family members, young and old alike, before, during and after the Service. I would have no hesitation in recommending Garton's to anyone, in the assurance they would be in safe hands.

  • 5 Alison Windas 12th Dec 2019

    Caring and compassionate from start to finish. They made the whole thing bearable.

  • 5 Graham Harrison 11th Dec 2019

    Thank you so much to the team at M Garton's Funeral Directors, for your true professionalism, support, and care at such a sad time for our family. Would highly recommend Garton's. They helped us organise a truly amazing service for our mother which she deserved. Every step of the way they kept in touch and made this difficult time a little bit easier for us. Once again a huge thank you to Lee and Team that helped give my mother the best send of!

  • 5 Tim Gajus 5th Dec 2019

    Lee has been great and very professional when arranging direct cremation services. You can tell that it's a trusted, family run business that has wealth of experience and I was very pleased that M Garton & Son took such a great care when fulfilling our request from start to finish. Not only they were outstanding, they are also the cheapest provider in Hull.

  • 5 David Thornton 5th Dec 2019

    The service was entirely professional and as importantly, friendly, which was a great comfort at a difficult time. I would recommend Garston without hesitation.

  • 5 Clare Salmond 28th Nov 2019

    I would highly recommend M Gartons & Sons for Funeral Directors for number of reasons, first is the sympathy and professional advice from beginning to the end in the most difficult time in arranging the funeral, for my Dad, I had never arranged a funeral before but they made this easy to do, all staff I dealt mainly with Lee, but also Eric and Fergus were extremely friendly and gave me endless support needed, any question you had they would advice anytime you needed, and helpful hints and it was not about pushing additional services unnecessarily or costs, they use a Graham’s Florist who were very very reasonable prices and the flowers were beautiful. I would have to say that Lee were absolute gem, takes a very special person to do that job and he is one of them an absolute diamond and truly grateful to M Gartons & Sons and the words A very big thank you seem so little to all that they did for me and my family for a lovely send off my Dad.
