Andrew has been a wonderful support throughout this difficult time. Nothing has been too much trouble and all of our wishes were met. He has gone above and beyond to ensure my dad had the best send off possible and we are all more than grateful of this.

    It could be said that there is no greater time that requires appropriate sensitivity than a funeral; Andrew Charles at Melton and the Vale Independent Funeral Directors offered us this in spades. He helped us navigate an incredibly difficult situation with a particularly complicated family dynamic. He was readily available both in person and by telephone, and maintained a graceful availability to all who wanted to visit our brother before his cremation. On the day of my brother's committal Mr Charles' and his team were dressed impeccably and behaved like consummate professionals. At all times, we felt Mr Charles' respect for our brother and his memory, and his passion to provide a fitting and significant occasion. Throughout the process it felt like nothing was too much. I can't recommend him enough.

    We used Andrew at Melton and the Vale for my mother's funeral. The benefit of using an idependant: he provided an extremely personal service and took the stressout of the whole thing. Andrew provided the celebrant, flowers, order of service and nothing was too much trouble. We had a beautiful funeral befitting of a lovely lady: and it was very good value. I would not hesitate to recommend this company and will definitely use it again should the need arise.

    They were so very knowledgeable in the whole process. This was the first funeral I have had to arrange and they guided me through it. Compassionate and caring company.

    Andrew provided a very professional service with sensitivity and care. On the day of my uncles funeral the weather conditions were unexpectedly adverse but Andrew and his team ensured all went as smoothly as possible. I would like to thank Andrew for all his help and the attention we received during this difficult time. I would recommend Melton and the Vale Funeral Directors

    Andrew helped us to create a wonderful send off for our mum. He performed extremely professionally in a caring, patient and considered manner. Also a word for Christopher who was so welcoming of ideas and delivered a terrific tribute with meaning and character. Thank you to the whole team x

    My father filled out one of Andrew’s funeral wishes forms after he learnt he only had months to live. This form was a tremendous help for both us and Dad. It helped us a lot with the decisions we needed to make as he had already decided what he wanted. Andrew treated my family and I with kindness and compassion, and guided us through the whole process. It was extremely difficult with Covid rules but Dads wishes were ticked off one by one while still complying to Covid rules. He let the grandsons carry Dads coffin and helped them with clear instructions as to what they needed to do. Everything went really well and smoothly and we would like to say a huge thank you to Andrew and his staff for making Dads funeral just as he wanted. He would have been so pleased. I have got more funeral wishes forms from Melton and the Vales website for the rest of the family now, it is such a comfort to know future funerals for our family will be  just what we want and a little less stressful for us. Thank you Andrew.

    At a time of immense sadness Andrew was fantastic. Supportive, helpful and in no way pushy. Andrew helped us to set a realistic budget which enabled us to relax knowing the costs were taken care of.  With his help we gave my Aunt a fitting send off. The funeral was calm and dignified. Andrew and his team gave the family space to grieve and the security of knowing everything and everyone was taken care of.  We recommend Melton and the Vale Independent Funeral Directors unreservedly. You will not find a better service.

    We simply could not fault Andrews's attention to detail and how he handled the entire situation with immense respect for my dear old Dad. Andrew made the whole situation as bearable as humanly possible in the most difficult of circumstances. Thanks, Andrew that was very much appreciated. Kind regards Benn Simms
