T Allen’s provided a respectful caring service on behalf of our family when Dad passed away.  From the telephone call to inform them Dad had passed, making the funeral arrangements and finally the funeral service, the staff at T Allen’s were with us step by step.  I can’t thank them enough for their support, care and consideration shown.

  • 5 Michele Morement 7th May 2017

    Everyone I came into contact with was extremely caring and professional.  They made a difficult time very straightforward and a particularly thoughtful thing to do was when they rang me out of the blue to ask how I was - I really appreciated that call.  I cannot fault their staff at the interment - they kept checking in and made sure Dad and I knew what was going to happen every step of the way.  Thank you to everyone involved for making it such a special day.

    We were a little disappointed that no wheelchair was provided for my mother after this was discussed with T. Allen. Also, getting one of the music tracks wrong during the service was a little upsetting.

    Right from the start, Terry Allen Funeral Service gave us a great impression. They were warm, inviting and professional. They took their time with our queries and understood exactly how to get us through the process. They have strong connections to the community and local area, making it easy for them to make sure everything ran smoothly. Our main contact was with Ally. She was very polite, kind, compassionate and helpful each step of the way. Overall, we greatly appreciate the service we have had and how well everything was handled. We highly recommend Terry Allen. All the staff we had correspondence with whether on the phone, email or in person were lovely. Thank you very much. Yours Faithfully, The Renner family.
