    From the moment we engaged with Debbie Bennett Funeral Directors, we knew we were in capable hands during what was an exceedingly difficult time for our family. Their team exuded a level of professionalism and attentiveness that was both reassuring and comforting.




    Right from the initial contact, the staff at Debbie Bennett were incredibly understanding and responsive to our needs. They handled every aspect of the funeral arrangements with utmost respect and dignity, ensuring that all our requests were met with the highest standard of care.




    On the day of the funeral, their impeccable organisation allowed the service to proceed without any issues, enabling us and our loved ones to focus solely on saying our goodbyes. Their supportive presence was a constant throughout, guiding us gently through the day's events and ensuring everything progressed smoothly and with the gravity the occasion demanded.




    The entire team at Debbie Bennett demonstrated an exceptional level of empathy and support, making an inherently challenging day as bearable as possible. Their commitment to providing a respectful and dignified service was evident in every interaction, and it provided a great deal of comfort to us all.




    I would recommend Debbie Bennett Funeral Directors without hesitation.

    Debbie Bennett’s were amazing and took all the stress out of arranging my mums funeral. We had no idea where to start or what to order/what we wanted with everything being so sudden. Terri-Ann took over everything and the whole process was so much easier to handle and deal with.

    This is the first time I had ever dealt with loss so I didnt know where to start but the girls at DBs where amazing from start to finish, were always contactable when I needed them and kept me up to date straight away with every step ie collecting my nan into their care, letting us know all the arrangements & order of service books were ready and then collection of my nans ashes. They even transferred her into a urn we had purchased. I highly recommend this business and I don't think I would go anywhere else now when i need a FD again. Cant thank you enough! XXX
