    We were very pleased with the excellent service that we received from S. Stibbards & Sons. They made a very difficult time as easy as it could be. Their attention to detail on the day and their support throughout was excellent. We cannot thank Martin enough for his professionalism and care on the day.

    We would also like to thank Wendy not only for her support in planning the funeral but for also recognising how well suited Emma the Celebrant would be for our family, she conducted the service beautifully.

    We would highly recommend Stibbards to others.

    Dear Janice, it was a absolute privilege to look after you and the girls on the occasion of Peter's funeral, Peter's choice of exit music will stay with me forever and characterised his sense of fun. I will pass your comments onto both Emma and Wendy, thank you for letting us be part of Peters day. Warm regards Martin

    Having met firstly Peter and thereafter Heather we felt totally at easy. Heather arranged the service after carefully going through all details of the funeral arrangements. Even spent extra time rearranging the order of service without a word of complaint.

    The funeral cars arrived perfectly on time . Stuart and his team carried out their duties perfectly. All the family agreed that the whole funeral service went without a hitch.

    Happy to recommend this company without any hesitation.
