WATERMANS dealt with every detail with the uttermost respect and helped our relation at the saddest time of her life. She had no worries letting them guide her all the way. And the service was a lovely send off the celebrant  spoke with comparison and feeling   We would like to thank James and Dale for all they done for Keith 

Trevor Hannaford 4th Mar 2021

The whole experience of dealing with a funeral, for our dear departed mother, was made so much easier, by the advice and guidance given to us by Watermans Funeral Directors. James Matthews was our first contact, the empathy expressed by him, was incredibly comforting. Whilst visiting their premises, I was struck by, how bright and modern it was, not dark and depressing, as one might expect. This I’m sure helped to put us in a much better place, at this very sad time.  We were very gently lead through the planning process. Good common sense and advise was available throughout.  We felt assured that Mum was in the best hands possible. The Chapel of rest was very calm and beautiful. They recommended a wonder Celebrant, Eric, who was interested in learning everything about our Mum.  One of the most impressive moments was when the Funeral Director, Mr Waterman  strode out in front of the hearse. He was immaculately attired and very elegant.  This truly was the most fantastic send off that we could of given to our Mum.

The service received was second to none. James was very courteous and was respectful of our wishes 🙏. The combination of James and Mr Waterman made out the grieving process much more bearable. I would recommend their professional services to everyone. The Celebrant Eric was also very good. We had a very beautiful send off for my Uncle.

    We would like to thank Watermans for all they have done for us at this difficult time. Without them we would not have been able to say our final goodbyes to our loved one with the love respect and dignity that Daphne our mum deserved. A special thanks to Dale, James and Shelley for the kindness of which they showed to our family, a simple thank you doesn't seem enough and we truly appreciate absolutely everything they did to make the day as special as Daphne our mum was and will always be to us. It was a hard task for them to take over a funeral from another funeral directors whom had shown no compassion whatsoever towards us. Thank you for caring X
