Clair looked after us really well and I was impressed by the attention to detail! It’s a hard time and a calm professional approach is what is needed.

    What can I say Nickolaus funeral day with Agnes went without a hitch she looked after myself and family with excellent professionalism. Also I cant pin a fault from the day Nick sadly passed away to the day of his funeral I have to say goes to Claire we couldn't have asked for a better person to look after me. She was a marvel xxx

    From the start our Funeral Director - W. Harkess - were 100% professional and very sympathetic to the situation. Our main point of contact - Raegen - couldn't be faulted and I would without doubt, recommend their services to anyone who has sadly lost a loved one.

  • 5 Andrew Laidlaw 7th Jun 2021

    We cannot thank the staff enough for the care and compassion shown to us. Clair and Raegan made sure everything went smoothly. Even arranging a small detour on the day to pass by our mums home of over 50 years . Nothing seemed too much trouble. Even though some things were done by email we still felt informed and looked after throughout . 

  • 4 Carol Hughes 1st Jun 2021

    All done in accordance with our wishes - gave good advice at a difficult time not helped by current covid restrictions .

  • 5 Jim Rae 24th May 2021

    All funeral arrangements were conducted in a compassionate, dignified and informative manner. Options were clearly explained and our requests were listened to and included in the funeral arrangements. Clair and Reagan were excellent providing an efficient funeral service on behalf of Harkess and we thank both of them for the manner in which they conducted arrangements. Jim Rae.
