Thank you so much for your professionalism and empathy shown throughout.

Sandra Cain 17th Feb 2021

We cannot thank Stibbards enough for their caring and professional approach to every aspect of our father's funeral. From the initial contact and planning to the day, nothing was too much trouble. The vintage Austin hearse was absolutely beautiful and the attendants were very respectful. Thank you to the whole team especially Scott and Simon.

Alison Martin-Hughes 16th Feb 2021

Unfortunately this is the 2nd time we've had to use Stibbards within less than 6 months. Both times they were extremely professional and very kind, I know it's their job, but I do feel they go above and beyond service wise. I would highly recommend them.

  • 5 suzanne Campion 1st Nov 2020

    I cannot thank Stibbards and Sons enough from the care and compassion they have shown my mum and I in handling my dads funeral. From our first encounter, when their private ambulance collected dad from home, they genuinely wanted to know about who dad was and showed the utmost care and compassion both for my dad as well as my mum and I. We had dreaded the funeral planning but Wendy and all the team made it as straightforward as possible, always ready to answer any questions we had and always happy to listen. I could not do their job but I will forever be grateful they do it simply faultless service from a team that truly care. Thank you for guiding us through this extremely difficult time.

    Lee Marston replied
    thank you for your kind words Suzanne and allowing us to look after your family at this difficult time, we always strive to give the best service possible to our families and are pleased knowing that we have been able to support and guide you through this difficult time.
