Jeffery Kinder 30th May 2022

Everything was done perfectly. The Colchester rep. Jade understood what I wanted and provided a supportive process from beginning to end. I made a few unusual requests and these were responded to with sympathy and understanding. I was the bereaved husband and needed and received the total support I required.
