We can't thank the team at Deighan's enough for the excellent, sensitive and compassionate service they provided in making the arrangements for Tony's funeral. Ian, Shirley, Ken, Katie, Anthony and all of the team really did 'walk the extra mile for us', which was a great comfort to us all at a very difficult time. Ian's daily phonecalls, in particular, were so supportive and reassuring. Every element of their work was conducted with the utmost courtesy and professionalism. Deighan's provided faultless service and we highly recommend them to anyone.

The moment we walked in and met Shirley we knew this is who we wanted to take care of mum. Shirley, Katie and Ian were ultimate professionals, caring, always available, compassionate and made this sad time a little easier. I would highly recommended Deighans, they provided such a personal service and nothing was too much trouble for them. Outstanding!
