A superb service from J Worley from start to finish. Just what is needed at a difficult time. They could not have been more diligent in looking after our needs and conducted the actual funeral in a very dignified way that harmonised with the various differing family requirements. Highly recommended!

Thecoffin had a gouge on the side and my mothers photo was not on the coffins requested. I telephoned Liz who we had been dealing with and advised her yesterday and she said she would investigate and call me back, I have not received a call this was almost marked as terrible.

Jane Biggs 19th Jun 2019

I am disappointed with the service and the way my requests were carried out or not in this case my mums funeral was on the 21st May and it has taken me this long to leave a review I am still upset and wish we had gone somewhere else to give her the send off she deserved

    Mark Worley replied
    Dear Mrs Biggs, thank you for taking the time to speak with me about your frustrations. I have addressed the training issues with the members of staff involved in your funeral arrangements to ensure that the issues you experienced are not repeated in future. I have also passed your comments on to the celebrant, who has assured me that he will be contacting you to address your concerns with the content of the funeral service. Once again, please accept my sincere apologies that your experience with us did not meet our usual level of standards and service. Yours, Mark Worley

    Our family would like to thank all at J. Worley for the professional caring support showed during consultation and on the day of the funeral, they helped us through a very difficult time, for which we are extremely grateful. We would not hesitate to call their services in the future and would recommend them to our friends.

  • 5 David Lawrence 13th Jun 2019

    The whole process of visiting your office and the way everything was presented, and the young lady who was with us was very helpful and very kind. The service we felt was very good and the whole process was for the family during our loss. Thank you for all your help and co-operation with the family needs at this sad time. Thank you all from the family. .

  • 5 Rosemary Penrose 11th Jun 2019

  • 5 William Blyth 10th Jun 2019

    From start to finish a very caring, thoughtful company understanding our requirements and ensuring that they were put into place to ensure that we said goodbye to our father as we wanted to.

  • 5 Kristian Gruber 6th Jun 2019

    All the arrangements ran smoothly and I would like to thank you in particular for suggesting Ruth to me as a Celebrant. I will be writing to Ruth separately, but suffice to say she got the tone exactly right and managed to encapsulate my mother’s life in her address as a result of her detailed conversation with us. The quality of her service was commented on widely by those attending.   This is now the second sad family event that you have dealt with for us, the first being the my mother’s partner’s funeral some 4 years ago. In both cases everything was faultless from first contact to conclusion. I have no doubt that, as a family, it is you we will turn to again when the time comes.   Thank you again. Your caring professionalism is a credit to you and provided everything my mother would have wanted.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?
