Excellent service and overall experience. Stephanie was amazing and made a very difficult experience truly stress-free and streamlined. She was absolutely brilliant from start to finish and was always happy to answer any questions, with no task too great. Would highly recommend!

    Gary and his colleague's services were outstanding. They took special care of all the family on the day and their attentiveness was fantastic. Everything ran very smoothly and according to plan. We would like to thank Gary for his kindness and would highly recommend his services.

    All the family appreciated how well this funeral director dealt with our fathers funeral arrangements and the ceremony.  It was handled with great dignity and professionalism.  We would highly recommend the use of this service to anyone.

    Too many errors problems mis information... the worst service imaginable, look elsewhere if you want a stress free funeral...

    G RC replied
    We were saddened to receive this review and rating from you Mr Camplin, especially after our Executive Director Gary spent some time discussing your concerns with the funeral arrangements you were receiving. We have been your chosen Funeral Home for over 40 years, caring for different family members who had passed away. The underlying issue you had which due to the current Government Guidelines and Restrictions in place meant that all the arrangements were carried out online and over the phone. You found this process not to your standard of care and in part Gary agreed with you, in that you lose that personal connection between arranger and family, and this was your complaint. However the majority of families going through this remote funeral arrangement process are finding it easier. This is where your comment stops, you failed to go on to say that the appointed Celebrant Minister and our Executive Director Gary made the service for Mum as special as anyone would wish for in saying their farewell. You actually said to both that as always an excellent service although you do not want to use our services again to soon. Pleased be assured that your comment and review does not go unnoticed or acted upon, every effort will be implemented to look at ways to make sure other families understand the current procedures and can contact us whilst going through the arrangements if they are unsure of anything.

How can I get help with funeral costs?
