From the initial meeting to the actual day of the funeral, the staff at Richard Ward Funeral Services handled everything with professionalism, compassion, and an attention to detail, to the level of which I thought had disappeared. Nothing was too much trouble for them. My family and I could not have wished for anything better.

We couldn't have asked for better. All the staff were thoughtful and compassionate. All the details for the funeral were taken care of. At a time when you can't think of what's needed. Thank you Richard and all the staff

  • 5 Patricia Barker 22nd May 2022

    We had discussed our wishes for my husbands funeral prior to his death and Richard visited us in our home. He has a very caring and sensitive manner which we found to be very reassuring. On my husbands death Richard again visited us at home to arrange the funeral service. At every point we received sympathetic and helpful advice. The team supporting Richard all had the same caring attitude throughout the process of arranging everything. My husband received such gentle care and we were able to visit him in the chapel of rest to say our final goodbyes. He looked so peaceful and we were comforted that he was at rest. We were able to visit as many times as we wished. On the day of the funeral the professionalism of the service we received was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend Richard and his team to any of my friends and certainly he will be our number one choice in the future.  Patricia Barker and family
