    Mum's prepaid funeral,a traumatic experience anyway, was made a very dignified event. Stibbards spared no expense to explain, guide and perform a first class funeral. The respect shown to both mum and the family echoed a quality of service sometimes forgotten these days.

    The service and care we received from Debbie at Stibbards was exceptional. We were guided every step of the way and Debbie was always there on the other end of the phone to answer any questions. Everything was very professionally handled from Dad's care home right to the end of the ceremony. The calm and professional manner we experienced from Stibbards made a massive difference at what could be a very stressful time and I cannot thank you enough. I will be highly recommending you if given the opportunity.

    We are so pleased, that Debbie and the rest of the team were able to provide a fitting farewell for Alan and you as a family were well looked after.

How can I get help with funeral costs?
