The advice and support given by the office staff was very sympathetic and extremely helpful. The Funeral Director and bearers were dignified, reverential and respectful for all three parts of the funeral. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Tanya Linskey 16th Jul 2021

From beginning to end absolutely fantastic. In such sad circumstances we were dealt with sensitivity and compassion. All details were taken care of so that we had no worries and felt very supported. I’m hoping that we have no need for these services again for a long time but, next time we do, will definitely use again and would definitely recommend. Five star company without a doubt.

    I cannot thank Stephen P Gay and their staff enough for their support and friendly manner in which they gave me from beginning to end. The initial phone calls and subsequent booking to the funeral day itself, needed for this painful task was made so much more bearable by the staff helping me with the arrangements. They had been recommended to me and I certainly do likewise for them. Sincerely  Ken Harris.
