    I would highly recommend Julia at James Summers Penarth who dealt with us compassionately and professionally throughout mum's funeral arrangements.  Nothing was too much trouble and Julia took the time to find out mums character and match the funeral services to the families wishes.

    All the other staff were discreet, respectful and professional and the funeral itself went completely to plan.  Our expectations were exceeded and this difficult time was made more bearable by the thought and care demonstrated.
