    There are not enough ways to say thank you for all the care and dignity that was shown to me and my late husband. It has been the most horrific time of my life but I was shown so much compassion. I visited my husband every day and nothing was to much trouble, it is all the little touches that have made it so much easier like the chats in the office with a cup of tea after I had finished talking to my husband The whole place is spotless and the small family run business gives you the personal touch and they make you feel like your loved one is the only one there. I was never felt rushed or had to make an appointment to see my him I could come when it suited me. Thank you so much David I could not have got through it without your support xxx

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details.
