My dealings with the Rainham Office were really efficient and so helpful in a difficult time from our initial meeting to the actual cremation. It is the exceptional kindness from each and every member of the team that must be mentioned here. My particular thanks go to Sophie for all her help and kindness throughout the process. I know things could have been so much harder for myself and my family without her.

Linda Newton 13th May 2022

We can’t thank Sophie enough for supporting us through a very difficult few weeks.  At a time when our thoughts were all over the place, Sophie guided us in a calm yet cheerful way.  It helped us to cope knowing Sophie was looking after dad with great care and respect.  On the day of the funeral T Allen were very professional yet sympathetic and respectful.

    I used T Allen for my father’s funeral in 2017 as well. Everything was perfect on both occasions. Nothing is too much trouble and so highly professional.  From the collection of the body to the actual day of the funeral they have been in contact and helped me organise the perfect send off. I cannot thank you all enough - Liz in the office in 2017 and Sophie this time plus of course the gentlemen on the actual day. Thank you all most sincerely you made the lowest time of my life bearable.

    T Allen’s were amazing. Everything we asked for was no trouble at all. We asked for a flag as my father was an ex-serviceman, they arranged a full service complete with standard bearer.

    They had a lovely one-to-one personal service. 

    I would recommend them.

    From planning the funeral right up until we were taken to the wake, all of the staff were incredibly professional yet personal. They made an extremely sad situation much easier than we could have imagined. They were all kind, friendly and down to earth. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt well cared for. I would definitely recommend T Allens. Liz and Mark deserve a mention as they were our main point of call. Both helped to give my dad the send off he wanted and deserved.
