From the first phone call after my dad passed away, James and Emma were kind, informative and so professional. A small funeral but nothing was too much trouble and the communication  was second to none. Always at the end of the phone or replying promptly to emails it made the process so trouble free. The celebrant Barbara, who James put us in contact with is the most perfect person to officiate a ceremony for your loved one. The day of the funeral was perfect, we felt looked after throughout and James and Barbara made it a day that we will never forget. Thank you all from all the family.

  • 5 Jenny Hamill 8th Jul 2021

    I've known James for some time. I recommended him for a friend last year, and didn't consider going to anyone else for my husband's funeral. His attention to detail is exemplary and I would have no hesitation in recommending James Funeral Service.

  • 5 Ian Rowan 12th May 2021

    From start to finish we were treated with respect and kept informed.  The step by step support and advise took away any hassle from what was a difficult time. Nothing was too much trouble. Many thanks to James and Emma for everything.

  • 5 Doug Hughes 2nd Apr 2021

    At short notice we needed a Funeral for a cherished member of our Family. James provided a calm & supportive service understanding so well our needs . He recommended a wonderful Celebrant Peter Mc Nulty & despite the restrictions of Lockdown ensured that together with close  friends we bade farewell to  our relative with dignity & love.

    Excellent service, very pleased with arrangement, procession and flowers. Always available to assist on any funeral matters. Many thanks

  • 5 Malie Cordara 1st Mar 2021

    The service from James Funeral Service was faultless. James was efficient, supportive and caring in his attention to detail and in all his dealings with me. At such a difficult time personally and with the wider pandemic to manage I felt that the process was smooth and the funeral, though short, because of circumstances, was meaningful and heartfelt. I felt supported every step of the way and I don't hesitate in recommending James and his team.

  • 5 Douglas Dodd 29th Jan 2021

    James and Emma were very polite and professional covering all aspects.  Felt that the funeral was in good hands.

  • 5 Yuen Law 21st Jan 2021

    Excellent professional team!  James has conducted a few funerals for me, always knows what he’s doing. 

  • 5 David Greensted 20th Jan 2021

    James provided seamless organisation of the funeral in difficult and very odd circumstances.

  • 5 Richard Theobald 5th Jan 2021

    Everything went smoothly, which wasn't straightforward given the Covid situation. It was good to have the arrangements all handled well at what is obviously a difficult time. I was kept informed as necessary, and celebrant was also excellent.

  • 5 Sharon Collins 4th Jan 2021

    James Funeral Service carried out an excellent service for my Dad who passed away from Covid on 26/11. In these times of Covid restrictions everything was so much harder but James and his team took care of everything to the highest of standards and my Mother and I left everything in their very capable hands. The team were all so experienced, very respectful and courteous and nothing was too much trouble for them. We really did give my Father the best send off possible with the funeral restrictions but as a Family we were so pleased to have been recommended James Funeral Services. I would happily talk to any Families about the services we received now or in the future. Thank you James and Team for all your help, support and guidance during this very difficult times.  Sharon & Grace Collins

    although we were some way from London James made the whole process easy thank you

  • 5 Tracy Allen 26th Dec 2020

    My mother’s funeral was one of the first carried out in Lockdown. It was carried out by the funeral directors with dignity and respect. They took time to explain what would happen at the graveside and were professional in their duties. As they had carried out my dads funeral taking into  account all our wishes i had no hesitation in using them again. I felt we knew them and vice versa and that made it more personal. 

  • 5 Andy Kirby 23rd Dec 2020

    James and his team have been amazing at what they do and have given full support to families during a difficult time.

  • 5 Angela Arratoon 23rd Dec 2020

    First class, sympathetic, personalised service - nothing is too much trouble. Thank you from Angela and Nicholas for making things easy at this difficult time.

  • 5 Laura Gouvras Laycock 23rd Dec 2020

    James Funeral Services organised and carried out my mother’s funeral efficiently and delicately. In spite of the complications due to the covid restrictions James was always available to answer questions and offer advice, the service itself completely met our wishes and the celebrant he suggested was perfect. We appreciated the personal attention  and support offered by this independent company and would happily recommend James Funeral Services.

  • 5 Sonia Noronha 22nd Dec 2020

    I would highly recommend James funeral service. James personally went out of his way to make sure my dad had the funeral he deserved even though covid restrictions were in place. He was always available on the phone to answer my many queries. It is a very upsetting time so you need someone to guide you through what needs to be done and he took on so much of the stress. He was kind, compassionate, efficient and paid attention to every detail. Thank you so much James.

  • 5 Nikki Gerrard 22nd Dec 2020

    A wonderful experience at the hardest of times. James was compassionate and sensitive at all times and took care of every last detail. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

How can I get help with funeral costs?
