Excellent service ,they were so kind ,so professional

Cheryl Arnold 7th Jul 2019

I would certainly recommend D G Attwell. Anthony and Elizabeth were both very caring compassionate and professional. Anthony was very understanding about a family health situation that I was also dealing with apart from having lost my Mam. It was nice to have that support at a difficult time. No pressure with payment which can also be a worry and upsetting at a stressful time. Thank you very much. Cheryl Arnold

It has its own chapel of rest, which can accommodate up to 50 mourners for a funeral service, with funeral director Elizabeth Worth and her caring team on hand to discuss funeral choices – from a simple cremation, to a traditional burial with a religious or non-denominational ceremony.

DG Atwell has its own modern fleet of funeral transport and can also arrange for a horse-drawn-hearse, as well as meaningful alternative ceremonies including woodland burial.

Aiming to provide bereaved families with unconditional support, home visits can be arranged, to help make the funeral process a little more reassuring at this difficult time and ensure that every detail is according to your wishes.

  • 5 Gail Cole 2nd Jun 2019

    D G Attwells did my dad proud on his recent passing. I would highly recommend this funeral director as they also looked after my mum when she passed 28 years ago. Nothing is too much trouble and their compassion and care is second to none. Marcus and his colleagues are amazing and will look after everything that you need. They take all of the stress out of planning a funeral and are always available for advice and any questions that you may have. I will be forever in debt for the way that they looked after my dad from collecting him from his residence to the day that we laid him to rest... thank you once again.

    Marcus Leefe from D.G.Attwell visited the family at home and offered his condolences.  He was very thoughtful when going through the options of the services they provided whilst remaining professional. He kept me informed regarding the funeral arrangements, from the obituary notice in the newspaper, the order of service etc.  The day of the funeral went smoothly and we were able to lay my husband to rest in peace, safe in the knowledge that he was taken to his final resting place by D.G.Attwell.
