Stephen Gay and his team looked after me and my family during this very emotional and distressing time with great respect and kindness. Thank you to Mel for your  help in the lead up to Mum’s funeral. The day itself went so well and I feel happy and at peace that we were able to say our last goodbyes to her.

  • 5 Elsa Newman 20th Oct 2021

    I couldn't have asked for a more caring service, they were very supporting to me. Auntie wanted Stephen to do the funeral himself, not only was he the director he carried her coffin himself. Stephens son drove the VINTAGE car and read the situation with me perfectly, I sat in the front with him and he knew when to talk and when not. Our conversation about vintage cars helped keep my mind off the situation. I wish they were in a different business as I would love to do more with them but I don't want to attend any more funerals yet! Would highly recommend. Thank you Stephen and team. xx
