  • 5 Paul Butcher 24th Feb 2021

    The staff at T Allen's were professional and caring throughout our dealings with them for our mother's funeral, a task made even harder for them due to covid 19. The ladies in the office could not have done more regarding the actual arrangements and their staff on the day showed total respect to not only my mother but us as a family.

  • 5 Lesley-Ann Jeferies 16th Feb 2021

  • 5 Mr Jason Hyland 19th Dec 2020

    Exceptional service from obviously dedicate staff. Made a very difficult time much less so. Special mention to Sophia and Rita at Twydall who really made such a difference.

  • 5 Stuart Millar 19th Dec 2020

    We had previously used T Allen for my mother’s cremation via a Funeral Plan so my father liked how T Allen dealt with the the whole new experience for us . My father went ahead and bought a funeral plan for himself . Sadly in early November 2020 my father passed away after a short bout of Cancer . And again T Allen took control of the whole situation taking away the stress involved for the family . In these Covid times T Allen we’re very professional , courteous , and compassionate . Even help us set up a Webcam Service Link for friends & family in Scotland who due to Age , distance & Covid limitations couldn’t attend the service . We’d highly recommend T Allen in all aspects of dealing with this situation , it just takes all the work away from dealing with an unfortunate situation which we all have to go through . But of course if you want more input to say goodbye to your loved ones T Allen will listen and help you achieve what your aims are .   T Allen thank you

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?
