    My family and I have nothing but praise for Harold White especially Gary and Bernadette, at a time of personal tragedy we were supported, guided and advised.

  • 5 David Handsley 11th Feb 2018

    Before my Deborah`s funeral day of the 7th February, Gary and his staff organised the whole funeral with perfection. On the funeral day it was a magnificent sight to see the horses and white carriage arrive at the house. All went well at the City of London cemetery, and most of the people there said that it was the best funeral they had seen ever. Gary even took photos of us by the white carriage, and let us feed and touch the horses, which we loved to do. He gave those lovely touches to the event that made us happy. Our Deborah will be so pleased and proud of us for giving her a magnificent day.
