These are very strange and difficult times to be arranging a funeral for a loved one.A time that is hard enough anyway without the restrictions that are currently in place.Simon,Sue and Wendy made the whole process as easy as possible and as dignified as expected.I have never used Stibbards before but would certainly recommend them.

  • 5 Keith Payne 7th Feb 2020

    Stibbards were excellent from the initial meeting right the way through to the funeral. They kept in regular contact, checking that our wishes had not changed, confirming the arrangments and the exact timings for the day. The day the transport and the service went like clockwork. One particular nice touch was the drive along the seafront to the crematorium, so much beter than the main roads. They made a really nice day of such a sad occasion. Thank you.
