I was so impressed by Freedom Funerals. My mother, Alice White, passed away in August. You do not realise until you are in this position what loss entails. I found the ethos of Freedom Funerals to be so appropriate, so much what you would want and need during a shattered time. To me, it seemed as if every aspect of the service had been thought through and considered. They are an extremely human company and we are grateful for their care. Carmel Ellis

Lee was very knowledgeable and used his knowledge to listen to what we wanted for our Mother's funeral in September 2019. He took us through the choices. His suggestions were always helpful. On the day he made sure everything ran like clockwork. Everyone who attended commented on how well the funeral service went. I would strongly recommend Lee to others going through this difficult process.

From the moment we contacted Lee regarding my mother's passing, he gave us 100% of his support & guided us through the process. Lee took the strain of my mother's passing away by doing everything, we inform Lee how we would like the booklet of service & he completed it, he done the flowers which were amazing,we couldn't have asked any more from him. At the service Lee gave a lovely sincere service towards my mother, we can't thank him enough for his support & professionalism throughout this very sad time for our family. Thank you Lee.
