This is the second time that my family have used Viner & Sons and we have been very satisfied with the service received both times. Nathan made a difficult time less stressful for us.

    We had excellent service from Viners from the very first phone call I had with Lisa, who was sensitive and very kind when we rang to arrange the funeral. On the day of the funeral Viners personnel acted in a very professional way from the arrival of the hearse right through to the end of the service. I would highly recommend your funeral services to others.
