Considering the difficult time in the world at present the service and communication was outstanding. We would also like to thank them all for making a difficult time bearable.

Clair Myerscough 4th Apr 2020

Jonathan Terry have done a brilliant job, during what must be a very strange and difficult time for the funeral industry. They have shown the utmost professionalism, dealing with my father and our grieving family, with genuine respect, empathy and kindness. Sadly we were unable to give dad the send-off he deserved, but they did everything possible to ensure it was still very special and personal. I will be using them for dad’s memorial service when these strange and dangerous times, have passed. In the meantime, I wish them strength and safety for the months that lie ahead. Thank you so much, to all of you at Jonathan Terry. Stay safe. May we all meet on the other side of this. XX

  • 5 Sandra Lutley 9th Mar 2020

    Never having to go through this process before, Johnathan Terry listened to what I needed then did it. They consulted me through out but took all the stress away.  Thank you so much. It left me time to concentrate on my Dad. 

  • 5 Bidisha Bhowmick 28th Feb 2020

    I’m so happy with the fantastic service we have received from Jonathan Terry. Matthew was amazing from the start and a ‘perfect fit’ to organise my husbands funeral as both were aviators with a passion for flying. He has a sensitive and caring manner and a positive can do attitude which made the whole planning process so much easier to cope with at such a difficult time. He really understood my vision for the funeral and helped make it a reality. Tracey has also been fantastic, her warmth, support and technical prowess helped me enormously too. They really are perfectionists in what they do and I have been so impressed with them all. Thank you Matthew and Tracey. We are forever grateful for taking care of us during this most heartbreaking time. 

  • 5 Colin Phillips 27th Feb 2020

    We thought long and hard before we finally chose the services of Jonathan Terrey and without reservation of any kind I can honestly say that Jonathan and all of his staff were just perfect in every way. From our initial meeting with Jonathan, right up until Mum's funeral day, Jonathan and his staff made sure that everything was taken care of right down to the smallest detail. Everyone was sympathetic, empathetic and sincere in all of our meetings and correspondence. Everyone wen't beyond the call of duty to make sure that Mum's funeral was everything that she had talked about in her wishes. I'd like to mention Tracey, Ann and Chris who are a credit to the business and are also wonderful people. I would like to express my extreme gratitude for the way in which everything was done in preparing for Mum's last day which is one that everyone will remember for all the right reasons. Thank you so very much Jonathan, and a massive thank you to all of your staff for taking care of matters so well. I can't recommend you highly enough and if you are reading this review, pick up the phone and call Jonathan. You will not be disappointed.

    We cannot find any fault with the very professional and friendly service provided by Edward and the Peartree team. From start to finish they were sympathetic, honest and truly caring at a very sad time. They guided us through the whole funeral process with such respect and integrity, they were able to adapt to unforeseen event with such efficiency. Edward arranged for a motorcycle hearse giving my dad a fantastic send off. Nothing was too much trouble, we have no hesitation in recommending them. Thank you Wendy

    Jonathan and his team were fantastic when arranging Mums funeral. They support us as a family every step of the way especially through the tears..  Ann was wonderful when I had a melt down about photos for the order of service, she just helped me through it and talked to me. Overall Jonathan made what was a very difficult process, well, just easier, nothing  was a problem and In the end we felt like we gave mum the send off she deserved.  Completely professional with care and understanding.

    Thank you, so very much Jonathan, Tracey, your family and team for all your help, advice, from the very first contact, until our final goodbye, to our sister Sarah, on Friday so very special . Every step of the way, your vast knowledge and experience, guidance through the stages and procedures, and recommendations - like Sylvia Corke to take the Service-, together with your great empathy, compassion, professionalism, discretion and dignity made a very sad and difficult time for me, and my family, so very much easier, and run so smoothly. We all thank you very much for the excellent service and work that you have done for us. Sue x

    I would like to say a Big Thank You for all that Jonathan Terry, Peartree Avenue had done to fulfill my mum's plan and wishes. From the first meeting to all the help and guidance leading up to my mum's funeral. I don't think it could have been any better on the day, all went as it was planned. The beautiful hearse, the compassion that was shown throughout was just perfect, so pleased.

  • 5 Richard Martin 3rd Dec 2019

    Jonathan Terry were outstanding - They made great efforts to assure me that everything was taken care of in a clear and concise manner - they even checked that my to-do list was being attended to so nothing was forgotten. Bereavement is a difficult time JTIFD gave me the confidence that everything was taken care of. They took care of both my parents when they died and I knew that they were very good from previous experience and also from the response from the Hospice when I told them Jonathan Terry Independent Funeral Directors were taking care of things. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
