First class, professional and sympathetic service. Scott and his colleagues handling of both my father's and mother's funerals was exemplary and helped to make a sad occasion a fitting and dignified tribute to them both.

We felt we were in safe hands from the beginning, dealing with Lee at Stibbards . Empathetic, professional with a fine attention to detail,, the arrangements were made straightforward fir us.  On the day, the vehicles were immaculate , drivers very professional and everything went like clockwork. I would have no hesitation in recommending Stibbards to others.
