My Father’s funeral was conducted with dignity and respect. I was given very good advice when organising the funeral and everyone was kind. On the actual funeral day I had nothing to worry about as it was all under control. Thank you

Lorraine Robinson 10th Apr 2021

Wonderful service and support - thank you 

Jackie Pemberton 5th Apr 2021

Our experience with S.Stibbards was a very positive one. David and the support staff were very good and efficient prior to the funeral day and afterwards too. Scott and his team made sure everything ran smoothly on the day and made us feel very comfortable. We didn't feel rushed at any point. Thankyou all for your kindness and support.

  • 5 Jill Fitzgerald 24th Mar 2021

    David Brittney at the Stibbards Shoebury office was extremely kind and helpful and on the day everything went smoothly. We did a route from the house via all the clubs my husband was involved in and it was so wonderful that Lee got out and walked at every three, giving us time to see all the people who'd come out to pay their respects to my husband and time for the family to reflect. I felt very safe and comforted in Lee's hands. Thank you.

    Martin Stibbards replied
    Dear Jill, thank you for allowing us to be involved in providing Gary with such a special tribute to his life. I am so pleased that David and Lee looked after you so well and hope that all those who came out to pay their respects to Gary gave you immense support at such a difficult time. Kindest regards, Martin Stibbards

  • 5 Julie Dunnico 16th Nov 2020

    The whole service was set out well and everyone thanked me afterwards. Scott was very kind and guided us to what to do. Only downside, which has nothing to do with Stibbards is that Rev. Wright got the Order of Service wrong and read out a speech that my Aunt was going to say.

    Lee Marston replied
    Dear Julie, we thank you for your comments, and we are pleased that Scott was able to support you on the day, we are sorry to hear that there was some confusion on the ministers side and hope this didn't detract from the day
