Tim looked after the whole family from the outset, he was both compassionate and professional guiding us through the difficult decisions that were necessary with respect and sensitivity. Nothing was too much trouble. We knew that Tim would treat Craig with care and dignity and wouldn't have chosen anyone else. Thank you Tim.

When you need help, Tim Mathews is the man to call on. He made my mum and dad's funeral a work of art, I cannot recommend him highly enough. Give your loved ones the send off they deserve, you won't get better than Tim.

Lin Essaye 28th Nov 2016

Tim was very caring and supportive throughout the planning of Pierre's funeral as well as the ceremony.  I would thoroughly recommend him.

    Tim was exceptional, he told me he'd be with me all the way and he was true to his word, nothing was too much trouble. Tim's professionalism throughout made a very difficult time slightly more bearable by taking everything in hand and guiding us through.

    Thanks Tim and Team.

    Terry would have been very proud of the complete Funeral Arrangements that you planned for and gave to him. Even the slightest problem was overcome and the feedback from those people who attended was first class. A job well done. So a very big 'Thank You' once again.

    The level of service and attention to detail that we received from Tim was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble. I was impressed from the outset when Tim came to my home to discuss the arrangements. This visit was followed up with regular phone calls to ensure that everything was in place for the service and that I and the family were happy with arrangements. On the day of the funeral, family and friends were treated with the utmost respect and the whole day was dealt with sensitively.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Tim and the team and they have my grateful thanks.
