From start to finish they made each of us reassured about everything. They're caring, compassionate, nothing was rushed, even went the extra mile to complete what was a very emotional day. Can't thank them enough, Ian even texted me the night of the funeral to make sure we were all OK. Thank you from the whole family for making a very very emotional journey bearable for us all. X

    The way Deighans conducted my late husband's funeral could not have been bettered. The staff were all sensitive, caring and professional. Ian, the celebrant did a wonderful job in celebrating my husband's life, interests and achievements. In fact, several relatives and friends commented that it was the best funeral celebration they had ever attended.

    Shirley Deighan replied

  • 5 David Dunn 24th Mar 2021

    All the staff at Deighan’s make sure you are looked after in really difficult and heartbreaking times.  They are understanding and thoughtful and are there when you need them.  They guided us through this very emotional and upsetting time with a superb manner. David and Eileen Dunn

  • 5 Natalie Hall 24th Mar 2021

    We as a family couldn’t thank you enough for taking such good care of our Dad. Both Ian and Ryan treated us with such warmth, compassion and were so respectful throughout our experience. We really appreciate everything you have done to help make Dads send off such a special day. 

  • 5 Linda Smart 22nd Mar 2021

    The funeral was the best it could be on a sad day. Was a brilliant personal touch and felt like our deceased was in good hands and well looked after. An amazing team nothing to much.

  • 5 Carol Lesley Westcott 28th Feb 2021

    Excellent, personal & professional service. Cannot fault the care given by all the team. Many thanks.

  • 5 James Stewart 26th Feb 2021

    Deighan’s were very respectful and efficient in terms of preparing the funeral and carrying it out. It was my first experience of planning a funeral and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again if I had to arrange another

  • 5 Emily Dempster 20th Feb 2021

    Between Ryan and Ian they made my mums service lovely and made it all about her and her family which is what my mum was about, they helped us every step of the way, from getting my mum from the hospital as soon as possible as we had mentioned her fear of the hospital, making you feel at ease while visiting your loved one in and out of hours, to the day of the service, they make you feel welcome and like part of the family. I would highly recommend them as they go above and beyond for you in the worst time of your life. Thank you the Dempster Family 😊

  • 5 Steven Green 17th Feb 2021

    From start to finish everything was very professional and the attention to detail was second to none really took the strain of organising at a very difficult time and it’s the little things that make a difference  5 STAR  thank you 

  • 5 Joanne Jolley 15th Feb 2021

    From start to finish I couldn’t possibly find fault with Deighans. They made the whole experience so much more than we expected. I know there’s a team of them but for us personally Shirley, Ryan and Ian deserve a mention. Ryan’s compassion is something I won’t forget. A little bit of kindness just by knocking on the door to the chapel of rest, to tell my dad he had visitors. I will be forever grateful  for such a small yet massive gesture to us as a family  Shirley went through all options to what we needed and advice on what we didn’t need to have with current restrictions in place.  And Ian the celebrant was amazing. We sent him lots of emails with memories and facts about my dad. He made his life story so thoughtful yet fun. Just how we like to think he should be remembered.  I honestly never wanted to leave a review as I hoped this wouldn’t happen to us as a family this soon but if you ever need to use Deighans funeral parlour they come extremely highly recommended  With love from the Jolley family xx

  • 5 Lynda Finney 20th Dec 2020

    Deighan’s provided a very professional and personal service and took away all the worry about planning a funeral. Ian the celebrant was amazing - everyone commented on the beautiful service he gave in the crematorium. 

  • 5 Angela Ricketts 14th Dec 2020

    Excellent, compassionate, friendly service.... went out of their way to accommodate requests, we spoke everyday on the phone about aspects of the funeral, the service felt very personal.  They promised to look after mum when she was with them and we felt this was sincere.  They were very helpful as we priced up the funeral, they gave costings when asked straightaway which helped us to plan the funeral we could afford. Although the funeral was held during this COVID season everything was done wonderfully well and we all felt the day (although very sad) could not have gone better. Thank you in particular to Ian and Ryan for all the care we received as a family.
