We are truly thankful for Ed and his team’s efforts to provide the best send off for Mum as possible under the COVID restrictions. From the moment Mum was placed in their care, we had nothing but the highest order of service, conducted with genuine care and compassion. Everything was perfect, from the flowers to the service itself, we cannot recommend them more highly.

    Brunskill family funerals were absolutely wonderful in organising my Grandmother’s funeral recently. I honestly can’t recommend Ed and his team enough.  Funerals are a challenge at the best of times but Ed made the entire arrangements from start to finish absolutely seamless, nothing was too much trouble.  There is no question that we will use Brunskills for our funeral arrangements when the time comes in the future - thank you so much for looking after our family so well and to all your team who were professional, compassionate and understanding.  Until next time.... Best regards, Susie Higgs

  • 5 Heather McMahon 18th Dec 2020

    From the first phone call to Ed at Brunskill Family Funerals to the funeral service I couldn’t have had more professional help, guidance understanding and genuine care for me and the family. When you loose a loved one it’s the most devastating and emotional time, Ed advised me and took a lot of worry about arrangements off my shoulders. He was a tower of strength thank you Ed from me and the family. I would recommend Brunskill Family Funerals for a kind and courteous service.

  • 5 Fiona Want 18th Nov 2020

    We cannot recommend Brunskill Family Funerals enough; their compassion and professionalism are outstanding. Ed recently helped us through the loss of my Fiancé’s father. Being only 26, planning a funeral was not something we expected to be doing and we were completely lost. From the very first phone call, Ed was so caring, calm and always made time to help us with anything we needed. He took care of everything, making things as straightforward as possible for us and helped us to give Mike the best send off we possibly could given our financial situation, never once being pushy or trying to up-sell. Nothing is too much trouble for Ed and it is evident he genuinely cares for his clients with his support continuing beyond the day of the funeral. If you were to find yourself in the awful situation of losing a loved one, Brunskill Family Funerals will act with integrity and empathy to ensure your loved one receives the dignified send off they deserve.

  • 5 Maureen O'Connor 30th Sep 2020

    Brunskill Family Funerals were recommended to us by a good friend. As soon as we were introduced to Ed we knew we had made the right choice. He is so professional, caring, compassionate and friendly, nothing was too much trouble.  He helped us all along the way, advising us, taking things out of our hands and quietly sorting everything in a calm and professional manner. Ed and his team showed the utmost respect to our mum and for that we are truly grateful. Ed is a credit to his profession and we have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone. Thanks again Ed.

    I cannot stop thanking Ed Brunskill Family Funerals for the professional and impeccable service they provided for my beloved sister's funeral.

  • 5 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.

    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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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!
