The service l received was excellent Michelle was kind,helpful and most of all understanding. I have to say all the staff was kind and friendly. I found that if I needed help with anything at this very emotional time Michelle was willing to help or if I was upset about something she was there with some kind words. My experience is something that I cannot complain about, keep up the good work.

After any loss it's very hard, and finding a funeral director is a very hard choice, but in the end we knew we had made a good choice is choosing Gillmans in norbury, Gill was amazing, caring, compassionate, welcoming among other things, I felt my dad was in a good place, very welcoming towards my family needs, even opened up for us, at 6.30am on a Saturday morning so that my brother who flew in from abroad on the Friday evening could see my dad before funeral, Gill and her team were absolutely amazing, Samantha Rhonda and all the staff are amazing it's like we have made friends for life, thank you
