    The service I received was amazing. The empathy and patience that was displayed towards me was out of this world. The staff were professional, caring and it was a pleasure sharing beautiful memories of my dad's life to them. I'm eternally grateful for the support I received.

  • 5 Shingairai Chirisa 9th May 2022

    From the first day  I contacted CJREILLY I was taken through the process in a very clear way. The customer service is excellent. The whole process was down in a short period . I would recommend this funeral service to anyone who needs repatriation to Zimbabwe 

  • 5 Angie Saville 9th May 2022

    Chris and his team have now done our Dad’s funeral & just recently our Brother’s and even though at this time Chris and his team were going through there own death in the family they were professional and so caring I can’t express enough how they cared for our brother and nothing was to much trouble they dealt with all the paperwork and made a very difficult time so much easier. We would recommend this service to everyone who needs a funeral service.

    This is the second time I’ve used them and I will do again, hopefully not to soon. They are a very nice professional Company, very helpful and I felt  I could phone them and change things whenever and no request was to much.

  • 5 Seun Obadare 9th May 2022

    They were professional, explaining  things clearly and very supportive. They took the stress away from arranging my wife’s funeral.

  • 5 Sally Austen 9th May 2022

    I cannot speak highly enough of the way my fathers’ funeral was handled. Right from the outset, I experienced nothing but kindness, sensitivity, professionalism of the highest standard and a genuine wish to ensure he had the best possible send off. Every correspondence was promptly dealt with and nothing seemed too much trouble. I will always be thankful for their support and extremely grateful for the way they looked after my siblings and I the whole way through.

  • 5 Mary Karimagako 3rd Apr 2022

  • 5 Mark Kenny 28th Mar 2022

    I cannot express the gratitude I have for this wonderful team of lovely people...chris and the team have previously taken care of my nan, uncle and aunt and their arrangements on seperate occasions and they have all had wonderful services. When my dad sadly passed I already knew his wishes were for cjreilly to take care of him and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I knew straight away that dad was going to be looked after and in the best and caring hands from the start and all the way up to the date of his service. Its the first time I have needed to be personally involved in dealing with arrangements with chris and the team and they helped take care of everything me and my family wished for to make it the perfect service for my dad and how it was. It was also done with such compassion, care and total professionalism throughout and they are there for you every step of the way and whenever needed. I honestly cannot say enough good to justify the caring service Chris and the team gave to my dad, me and my family during a very difficult and continuing sad time but I can honestly say my dad would be so so happy with the special service cjreilly gave to a special man...

    When my uncle passed away the whole family was heartbroken. And the thought of repatriating our beloved’s remains to Zimbabwe  was very daunting as we had never thought or contemplated  about anything like this before. I consulted CJ REILLY after a friend referred me to them.  I first spoke to Haley who was phenomenal and understanding.In no time she emailed me all the packages they had for repatriations to Zimbabwe, everything was  in black and white. Her advice was spot on. During the process I also got to know Gill- and words fail me to explain how this amazing person made everything seem so simple when we were all grieving and having extremely difficult time.  Me and my family are forever immensely grateful for help. 

  • 5 Patricia Kuteesa 13th Mar 2022

    CJ Reilly was the most sensitive, professional and respectful funeral director I could have ever asked for. The team were excellent from day 1: helpful, honest, ready to answer any questions and willing to go above and beyond to ensure Mum got the send off she deserved. To anyone reading this review, please do not underestimate just how much respect CJ Reilly will show towards your loved one, and how much better you will feel that they truly were looked after in CJ Reilly’s professional care.

  • 5 Frank / Simon Musonda / Nkole 8th Feb 2022

    The service was excellent and efficient. Maybe if you can improve on giving updates even a text to the clients at every stage, than waiting for the client to call.

  • 5 Tendai Chimbeva 2nd Feb 2022
