first class service from all your staff would recommend you to anyone thank you all for what you did for our mum

Valerie Spice 10th Mar 2017

We could not fault Stephen Gay. The only criticism we have especially my daughter is with the Lay Reader. His mobile phone going off at a most inappropriate time and the fact that he is unable to move from the lecture consequently other people speaking are unable to' easily reach the mike. Apart from that we were very pleased.

    We found that the staff were kind and helpful giving us advice and guidance when required and
    nothing was too much trouble. On the day of the funeral it went very smoothly and the funeral directors were very professional ensuring that all details were covered every step of the way.

    I would highly recommend this family business.

  • 5 John Thompson 26th Oct 2016

    From the moment we walked through the door at Stephen Gay we were impressed at the professionalism of the staff in both manner and action. There was clear empathy and we were dealt with sympathetically and all our questions and concerns were fully answered. Communication following the first meeting was excellent and the funeral itself went like clockwork. We would have no hesitation in recommending this funeral director to anyone.

  • 5 Jane Rackham 23rd Oct 2016

    Superbly friendly and professional service in every way

  • 5 Sue Haywood 13th Oct 2016

    The services provided by Stephen P Gay funeral services were excellent from the planning stage through to the day of the funeral. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very supportive regarding the fact that we had an alternative family led service. The shop 'ladies' and the men 'in the field' were equally helpful and put us at ease during every stage. I have already recommended their services to a neighbour and would use them or recommend them again in the future. I cannot praise them highly enough.

  • 5 Michael Pearsall 13th Oct 2016

    A very professional team from front office through to the bearers. The team made a very unpleasant situation a memorable experience. Kind, thoughtful and empathetic. As someone who was overcome by the whole process Stephen and his team made sure all those attending the funeral were made welcome and to feel part of the service.
    I thoroughly recommend Stephen Gay and his team.

  • 5 Philip Bassett 5th Oct 2016

    Friendly, efficient and sensitive. All well organised with good communication.

  • 5 Helen LOW 23rd Sep 2016

    Stephen helped us through this extremely heartbreaking time of losing our precious son at only 22yrs old. Our son passed away in another country which made this even harder but Stephen arranged everthing with the repatriation, Stephen and his kind staff went to great lengths to make sure everything went to smoothly. He dealt with things with the utter most compassion and we are truly grateful.
    Regards Helen Low

    I chose Stephen P Gay Funeral Services because I have experienced a number of funerals that they have officiated at, in my capacity as a choir member in a local church.

    They are extremely respectful, show great compassion and dignity and are enormously professional. A truly great asset in the local community at Longfield. Their professionalism carries throughout the team, as does their care. Thank you
