You never have to worry about anything when Stibbards are in control.Their standards are excellent.Professional ,courteous,considerate in everything they do.I would not use anyone else.

Tracey Keay 18th Aug 2023

I cannot fault the way my dad was looked after . The Cortège was carried out with dignity and everything about it was first class . The staff were helpful when booking the funeral and made the whole process painless in an otherwise upsetting time . 

Avis Easteal 12th Aug 2023

Thank you to the team at Stibbards for your kindness and professionalism in arranging my Fathers funeral. Every detail was arranged impeccably and the day went to plan.

    From the moment Stibbards took Mum into their care every thing was handled with dignity and professionalism.
    Wendy was very helpful explaining the procedures, returning phone calls and answering our questions to ensure all the funeral plans were all in place and everything was taken care off.
    I cannot thank Scott and the team for their support on the day and especially when we had a problem with our florist.

  • 5 Suzanne Hartley 17th Jul 2023

    Cannot fault the service we received. From planning to execution everything was professionally and empathetically carried out. There was always someone at the end of the phone if needed and all questions were resolved swiftly.
    The drivers and attendants of the day really helped the service feel special and gave dad a dignified and peaceful send off.
    Obviously don't want to wish the need for their services on anyone - but a time comes for all of us and I feel anyone who has lost a loved one would feel safe and comforted in their hands.

    Lee Marston replied
    Dear Suzanne, thank you for your very generous comments which mean so much to all of us at Stibbards. As a family company we cherish the relationships that we build with our families and your kind comments will be shared with the team.

    Stibbards recently supported us with our mother's funeral, and now our Father's. On both occasions they were absolute professionals and made a very difficult time more bearable, from arranging the funeral right through until the day itself. I would not hesitate in recommending them.
