    Albert Parr are a very caring and professional. Dawn , James and Sarah made sure everything was in place for the funeral service and were very helpful.

  • 5 CHERYL ALI 4th Mar 2021

    I would not go anywhere else when my love one passes away as Sarah is so caring and loving - she takes care of everything thing from the very beginning and gives so much comfort for grieving people. she too was going through her sister's loss at the same time which was so difficult but she had all the patience - also her team really took good care of all of us on the actual day of the funeral. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

  • 5 Linda Watts 26th Feb 2021

    I can’t recommend Albert Parr and sons highly enough, from the first contact to arranging the funeral, from the printing of the order of service to Debbie who led the funeral  it’s self were all done with thoughtful kindness and a high standard of professionalism, when the sad occasion arises when I need to arrange another funeral I would not think about going anywhere else.Linda

    James and Sarah have been a tremendous support during the very tough experience of losing my husband. All arrangements were taken care of not just professionally but also with amazing care and passion. They both couldn’t do enough for us, and always went the extra mile to ensure that the day went as smoothly as it did. I can’t thank them enough. Marynet

  • 5 john Gale 17th Apr 2020

    The service that James and his team provided for my Barbaras funeral was far and way beyond my expectations. The respect that was shown ,the time given and the whole service made the act of saying goodbye so much easier for the family and myself. I would also like to thank the team for the beautiful presentation of the horse drawn hearse. To Dawn for arranging everything from start to finish , it made me proud to be able to give my wife the service she so richly deserved. Also I would like to say thank you to May Andrews for the beautiful Eulogy and music. There are no words that are sufficient enough to say thank you to you all. John Gale

  • 5 Jane Woodhams 11th Apr 2020

    Thank you to Albert Parr & Sons. Despite these challenging times and forever changing guidelines Albert Parr guided us through the process to be able to give my husband as dignified service as was possible. On the day of the funeral James was exceptional; he constantly talked us through what we needed to do and what the procedure was. Although the service was not what we would have wanted for John it was the best it could be. May gave us a fantastic service. I would like to send my appreciation to Albert Parr & Sons who genuinely want to do their best for bereaved families and managed to do this against the odds.

  • 5 Sue Carter 14th Mar 2020

    Very caring. Everything was arranged with dignity.

  • 5 John Anderson 31st Jan 2020

    They were supportive yet not intrusive throughout. A very professional company. They found solutions to any problem that arose, and nothing was too much trouble. I can highly recomment Albert Parr and sons.
