Lovely, kind and compassionate staff. Went above and beyond.  Making a very difficult time slightly more bearable. 

Anna Starkey 6th May 2024

Waters and Sons were kind and thoughtful and David helped us think through the funeral arrangements for our Dad when it all felt very hard to make decisions and take each day at a time.  He made suggestions and listened to the things we thought might work best for Dad, and represented our thoughts in the way we were hoping for the coffin to be laid out, and for what felt right to do between the service and the crematorium.  These details brought us comfort on a difficult day, and his team were also brilliant. Thank you.

  • 4 Elizabeth Hill 4th Feb 2024

    Unfortunately there was a lack of communication because some of our emails weren't picked up. The online obituary gave details of the cremation which was private and the notice for donations was incorrect. MDA should have read MHA.

  • 5 Philip Shead 16th Jan 2024

    We very impressed with the quality of service and care provided by Waters and Sons Funeral directors before and during the funeral service. The organisation was excellent and all the staff were friendly, approachable and caring. This eased the burden on the family of what has been a very difficult time for us. Thank you.

  • 5 Claire Davidson 12th Jan 2024

    From start to finish Jason and the whole team were kind, efficient and thoughtful.
    They made the whole process seemless with the greatest respect for my Father.

  • 5 Lynda Dipper 2nd Jan 2024

    We went to Waters and Sons because of the wonderful care they gave our father in 2016. Again in 2023 they looked after our mother with the same care.

    From visiting their office to emailing and ringing everything was handled with the upmost respect.

    We as a family were looked after very well and especially on the funeral day itself, everything was dealt with perfectly and we had peace of mind at a very emotional time in our lives.

  • 5 Diane Butler 2nd Dec 2023

    I can not thank David and all concerned at Waters and Sons enough for everything they did in making my sisters funeral go exactly as we wanted. They took the stress way by making every step easy for me and my brother in law. On the day of the funeral David was incredibly supportive. Nothing was hurried and it went just as it should. Thank you David and the team...you made a tough emotional day a beautiful day, one we won't forget.

  • 5 Susan Jones 31st Oct 2023

    Friendly, efficient service, accommodating and including all the elements that we had arranged, which meant that Dad’s funeral was exactly what Mum wanted and Dad would have wished for.
    We were so very grateful to Liza, our celebrant, who guided and led the most beautiful service- a perfect celebration of Dad’s life.
