    Stephen Gay Funeral Service. What can I say, other than fantastic. Everyone at the company were friendly, helpful and sensitive. Nothing was too much trouble. They dealt with every aspect in a professional manner and gave me total confidence that the day would be just as I wanted it and they made it perfect in every detail. Also their price was very competitive, I am so pleased I decided to use a local firm.  I would thoroughly recommend them.

  • 5 Lindsay Gordon 17th May 2020

    I have used Stephen P Gay's services for both my parents's funerals now. They were professional, empathetic & made the whole process as easy as possible. They worked hard during a pandemic and explained all the processes and changes and answered all my questions promptly. They were very reasonably priced too.

  • 5 Kathleen Chappell 11th May 2020

    Can’t thank them enough for all the help and guidance they gave. When we had a problem with putting the personal video recordings on the system they took over and sorted it out. Would definitely recommend them

    They can’t do enough for you. They made this hard time easier for me and everything on the day was perfect for my husbands day. 
    Thank you so much

  • 5 Simon Wood 11th Apr 2020

    Excellent throughout.
    Thank you so much for the support and guidance during an exceptional time.

  • 5 Johannah Coombe 3rd Apr 2020

    Under very difficult circumstances Stephen P Gay Funeral Service really came through for us.  With so many of the usual funeral traditions closed to us (no wake etc.) and so few mourners allowed, the service became VERY important.  The sympathetic staff members & Stephen Gay himself were very very helpful and understanding.  The webcast & live feed enabled family members who couldn’t attend to feel included and gain closure. Thanks to all

  • 5 Amanda Temple 23rd Mar 2020

    We received excellent and friendly service from all at Stephen P. Gay Funeral Service Ltd. We were happy to be guided by their experienced and sympathetic staff in all matters relating to our mother's funeral arrangements and everything went smoothly on the day, despite the extraordinary circumstances affecting the whole country. 

  • 5 Martin Pyke 10th Mar 2020

    I cannot praise Stephen P. Gay (Longfield) more highly!

    Thank you so much to Nina, Nathalie and Pauline for all their hard work, help and advice and making a very difficult time far less stressful than I expected.

    The day of my Dad's funeral went very smoothly and the staff on the day were extremely efficient and professional.

    M. Pyke.
