    Jeff and Maria could not have been more helpful and kind.
    It was not an easy time, they made the whole sad and emotional process bearable.
    Efficient, understanding of our needs and their communication was just right.
    Thank you so much xx 

  • 5 Maggie Short 3rd Apr 2024

    The service received from Jefferies was exceptional. This was from our first meeting, where we were spoken to with compassion and understanding, through to the funeral itself. Nothing was too much trouble and they accommodated our requests without any fuss. They also thought of the little things, which made all of the difference to us as a family. Would highly recommend using their services.

  • 5 Harvey Siney 13th Mar 2024

    Very professional, caring and considerate. Helped make a very difficult time smoother and helped us to celebrate the life of our amazing father.

    Thank you to all involved, it’s much appreciated by us all!

  • 5 Helen Birdett 13th Mar 2024

    I really can't say enough about how wonderful Jeffries are, they make the most stressful time, worry free and in the most caring and understanding way. They really understand the family ethos and you can rest assured you are in safe and caring hands.

  • 5 Sonia Withers-Wilson 9th Mar 2024

    From the moment my husband rang you for advice when my mum passed away you helped make everything so seamless. I can honestly say I was never once worried because you always had an answer to any of our questions, and ensured we always knew what was happening in regards to the arrangements.

    Mum I am sure loved her moment yesterday 28th February and her grandsons were so pleased to be able to help carry her coffin in. My family and friends also said how wonderful it all was, and of course Laura Rusbridge the celebrant was the icing on the cake as she really is a wonderful human being. Thank you all.

  • 5 Christine Warrent 13th Feb 2024

    The team were extremely patient, compassionate and really helped us to understand everything. The celebrant they chose for us was amazing at getting a sense of who mum was and gave a really genuine, heartfelt tribute to her at the funeral. 

  • 5 Stephen Cosier 10th Feb 2024

    They handled my dad’s funeral in 2014 and did an amazing job so when it came time for me to say goodbye to my mother I contacted them again. They did an amazing job again.

  • 5 Richard Burdett 13th Jan 2024

    I cannot rate or thank Jeffries highly enough. They guided me sympathetically and expertly through every step of the arrangements for my dear son’s funeral, always listening to my own ideas of what I wanted for him - and it all went perfectly.

  • 5 Tony Deacon 2nd Dec 2023

    I'd highly recommend jefferies. They were very efficient and caring without fussing overly. Both my parents used the Golden Leaves service to pre pay their fees and indicate their wishes making the process very straightforward. Sean Avard, the celebrant organised to carry out the service was excellent too, also recommended.
