Excellent service from one of the few remaining independent family run business left serving the local community. Dawn & James have a wealth of knowledge in this line of work and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommend. I would also highly recommend celebrants May Andrews and Sacha Ansell for their amazing compassionate work in writing and delivering the service. 10 out of 10 all round. Gillian Malton

From the first contact with Dawn at Albert Parr to the end of Mum’s funeral, everything was handled perfectly; sensitively, with kindness & dignity. Mum’s service was beautiful, so personal & her order of service looked amazing. Albert Parr couldn’t have done more to help us at such a difficult time; always efficient, knowledgeable & caring.

From the moment I walked into the offices in Elmers End following my Dad's passing Dawn put me at ease and guided me through the whole process of planning the funeral, something I had never had to do before and found completely overwhelming. Alan the conductor on the day was so lovely and again put me at ease with what was happening at every step on the day of the funeral. The celebrant , May Andrews who Dawn put me in contact with put together such a lovely service. My Dad had the most beautiful send off he so deserved. Thanks so much x

  • 5 Chris Smith 3rd Aug 2021

    Albert Parr are a tremendous team and supported our family from the moment of our fathers passing through all the arrangements and the day of the funeral and aftercare. A very nice company and we are so lucky we had them to give us a very personal and fitting tribute to our father and helped us make informed choices at each step. Thank you to all the team behind the scenes that we never met or had the chance to thank personally - we know you were there. A special thanks to James and his team for taking my father with such style on the night and looking after him, and a big thank you to Sarah who was basically a Star all the way through and organised every thing perfectly. Additionally our celebrant via Albert Parr was Michelle Harvey - words cannot say enough. So fitting. Thank You. Chris, Nick & Joyce

  • 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.
