  • 5 Jan Richards 26th May 2019

    Brian's daughters (my stepdaughters) and I have been delighted with the way Stibbards have conducted the arrangements for Brian's funeral from beginning to end. The approach of everyone involved, from Wendy to Dan, was always sympathetic and understanding, friendly and relaxed, which helped us to feel positive about the whole event. Our wishes were always listened to, but helpful advice given where necessary.

    We were pleased with the choice of Peter Holmes as celebrant. The wide range of practical choices, from coffins to floral tributes, was very pleasing, and we were delighted to be able to use the Visual Tribute facility.

    We are making good use of the Obituary page on the Funeralzone site, although as an older person with basic IT skills, I found it difficult to access at first. My one criticism is that, since the majority of funerals involve some members of the 'older generation', it would be a mistake to make it too difficult to make cheque or cash charity donations. Some of my (very alert and totally compos mentis) friends don't even know how to use a computer, let alone own one.

    This does not detract at all, though, from our being very happy indeed with the way that Stibbards arranged my husband's funeral.
