I cannot stop thanking Ed Brunskill Family Funerals for the professional and impeccable service they provided for my beloved sister's funeral. The amount of positive feedback I received from friends and relatives on the cremation service, was incredible. From the administration to the cremation, Ed Brunskill listened, was patient and sensitive, accommodated my requests and supported my family and myself through this sad time. Ed Brunskill Family Funerals knowledge, experience and expertise was invaluable. On behalf of my family and myself, thank you.

Nicola Ross 2nd May 2020

I really cannot put into words how grateful I am to Ed and the team at Brunskill Family Funerals. Right from the start, Ed was just amazing and so compassionate. He took care of all the arrangements and provided some useful information for the funeral such as ideas for poems, readings, music and also humanist recommendations. The funeral service itself was just so beautiful and moving. I cannot thank Ed enough. They are true professionals and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again or recommend.

I cannot thank Ed at Brunskill Family Funeral Service enough. He took care of everything when our beloved Father passed away April 2020. He is kind, considerate and understanding of your needs. The service they offer I cannot fault. Being Hindus he understood our traditions and accommodated them all.....Thank you Ed and Team

    From start to finish in a time which was stressful and upsetting, we felt very at easy with Ed from Brunskill Funeral Directors. He was respectful and understanding of our wants and needs. And everything for Dads funeral was how we wanted it to be in difficult circumstances. We would highly recommend Brunskill Funeral Director’s.

  • 5 Mark Nunns 30th Apr 2020

    After contacting Ed with news of Mum's passing the service we received was excellent. All questions we had were answered very quickly, we were guided through the process on actions to be taken with some Ed dealing with on our behalf. Given the current situation we couldn't meet but Ed arranged 2-3 Zoom meetings where his expert advice was given. The whole family were very pleased with the attention received to include the funeral service around the grave. I would highly recommend Ed and his sons.

  • 5 Samantha Hughes 30th Apr 2020

    I can not emphasise enough how lovely Ed Brunskill was in helping arrange my dad’s funeral. In these strange times Ed made sure that everything was organized in the best way for the circumstances. But most importantly he was so caring and kind even stepping up to the plate and taking control of the service himself. A huge thank you Ed as you made a very sad time easier to deal with

Thank you for everything Brunskill Family Funeral. RJ

  • 5 Geoff Schrecker 21st Mar 2020

    I would highly recommend Ed. We found Ed on this site after a bad experience with a funeral director in the area a few years ago when my Dad died. We live nearly 200 miles away, and for family reasons couldn't get down to make the arrangements. Ed was wonderful, he gave us all the options, but no pressure to spend more than we wanted, or to do anything in a particular way. He was calmly supportive all through. In the end we had the perfect send off for Mum. Thanks Ed, you have restored my faith in your profession.

  • 5 Sonia Morris 20th Mar 2020

    Ed, was wonderful, so kind and caring. He made what was a terrible time so much easier. He took care of everything and everything went beautifully, I can’t recommend him highly enough.

  • 5 Deborah Law 27th Feb 2020

     A excellent service. Brunskill Family Funerals made the whole process of organising my Mother’s funeral easy. I had never had to organise a funeral before and felt totally out of my depth at what was a very emotional time for me, but Ed and his team provided a very professional and caring service, leading me through everything that had to be done with understanding, care and professionalism, nothing was to much trouble for them. My Mother’s funeral was perfect and I can’t thank them enough.

  • 5 Caroline Taylor 18th Feb 2020

    From our first telephone conversation Edward Brunskill was sympathetic, caring and professional. He took away the stress of arranging our precious Mum’s funeral. He came to the house to discuss our preferences and guided us through every aspect of the funeral. He organised flowers, which were beautiful and was always at the end of the phone, text or e mail if we had any questions. He came to the house to pick up forms and to give us our Mum’s wedding ring. I would definitely recommend him. Thank you for everything Ed!

  • 5 Julie Findlay 11th Feb 2020

  • 5 Fiona Smales 4th Feb 2020

    I cannot speak highly enough of Edward Brunskill. From the beginning he was professional and took all the stress of my mums funeral away from me and my family. He visited us at home to discuss our preferences and guided us on the celebrant we used, Martin Shaw, who was also perfect. He organised flowers which were beautiful and was always at the end of the phone if I had a question. I would definitely recommend him and his associates

  • 5 Michelle Sears 27th Dec 2019

    A great professional independent company, after my Father passed away suddenly Ed & Julie (celebrant) both visited my Mother at home where she was made to feel at ease. Everything was arranged from home until the day of the funeral. Ed arrived on the morning & everything was carried out as asked even small detailed items. My Mother said it was perfect and had requested we use Edward Brunskills Services again for herself. Thank you from all the Family x

    I would highly recommend Ed and his team, he took all the stress away at our time of grief after our Mum passed away. He was attentive, kind and the whole experience which was hard was made so much better because of Ed. My Mum's send-off was what we wanted and the day was made so special because of the attention to detail provided by this company. I will be forever grateful to Ed and the team.

  • 5 Liz Pointing 9th Dec 2019

    I can not thank Ed enough for his help and support throughout the whole process of organising my father's funeral. Would definitely recommend Brunskill family Funerals

  • 5 Katie Dryden 2nd Dec 2019

    I highly recommend Brunskill Family Funerals. From beginning to end they offered support and guidance. They have the perfect balance of professionalism and care. After my dad died it was so daunting, I have never planned a funeral before. He was an old rock n roller at heart and wanted his own songs played at the funeral. Ed managed to source them and had them ready and waiting at the crematorium to play. My dads favourite flowers were daffodils, not something that is easy to sourced in November! Again, Ed managed to find a florist who produced a beautiful arrangement for on top of his coffin. They truly go above and beyond the call of duty, I can't begin to thank them enough. 

  • 5 Vania Correia 29th Nov 2019

    From the 1st contact with Ed I felt that I wouldn't need to worry. I knew that I could trust him to take care of my sister's funeral. Ed was always in touch and everything went well - very professional. After the funeral he kept in touch, which I found very kind of him. I would 100% recommend their services.

  • 5 Clive Wordsworth 28th Sep 2019

  • 5 Dawn Rowen 10th Aug 2019

    Extremely happy with the service provided and the support from Edward during such an emotional time. Everything was perfectly arranged and so beautifully staged. As a family it allowed us to grieve free from the worry of all the arrangements.

  • 5 Hazel Westbury 27th Jun 2019

    Ed from Brunskill family funerals organised the funeral for Stuart Dodds, a much loved dad of Sarah, Laura, Jemma, Eric and close friend of Hazel and Pam, Ed and his team were fantastic, he conversed with family members from Newcastle and London, he was so very helpful, compassionate and professional at all times. Ed especially made you feel comforted and helped us through every single stage, it felt like he was holding our hands and feeling our pain, even after the funeral he checked on family members and enquired about how they were feeling. Thank you ED Hazel Westbury

  • 5 Tracey Players 25th Jun 2019

    With the help of Ed & Family, we had the perfect final chapter to our Grandads story. Even with their professionalism, they had a sense of empathy which had us at ease, making our hardest decisions easier. The communication could not have been better from start to finish. I can not fault them in any way. Thank you for all you did to help us make our final farewells as special as our Grandad deserved them to be.
