T.Allen helped organised my husband’s funeral. I couldn't have wished for a better send off for him. From the time they took George into their care, as a family we felt safe and secure. All the staff are professional, caring and nothing is too much trouble. I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you for making the worst day of my and my family’s life that little bit easier.  Patricia and the Bagley Family.

    An amazing family run business. Have used them for both of our parents with no complaints.

    They are very empathetic and every single one of them are amazingly respectful and tentative to all our requirements regardless of how off the wall they were.

    Have asked that they be used for me as I know I will be in safe hands, not too soon though, I hope.

  • 5 Rene Diehl 13th Mar 2023

    From start to finish of a very difficult experience for me T Allen were outstanding. All the staff we dealt with, office staff and the undertakers, were very empathetic, helpful and supportive and gave a lot of help and advice. They were highly professional but very personal in their dealings with me went out of their way to help and accommodate me and my requests and it was flawless throughout. No funeral is easy but I was able to relax knowing the day would be conducted extremely well and that I did not need to stress about any arrangements. Thank you very much Rita, Liz, Mark and everyone else

    The passing of my brother at the age of 50 was such a shock and the hardest thing we have ever had to go through. T. Allen Funeral directors went above and beyond what we expected from them. Liz and Rita were fantastic, especially with my mum who visited my brother on numerous occasions and they were always there supporting and comforting her. Nothing was too much for them. They wanted to make sure that everything ran smoothly and it did. We can not thank them enough for looking after my brother and us.
