    Such lovely people to deal with, in trying circumstances. All our funeral needs for dad were met without question and the day of the funeral was went perfectly. Vanessa in particular was always willing to go the extra mile, twice offering to help, while I had to work on certain days Vanessa offered to collect my mum up from home to take her to see my dad in the Chapel of rest and also brought my dad's ashes home when myself or my mum were not able to collect.
    Thank you,

    Tim
