  • 5 Sarah Wilson 10th Nov 2023

    At the hardest time of my life Nicky and Howard gave my family and I great comfort and support. They both took the time to make sure I knew what to expect and to make sure my wishes were heard. On the day of the funeral Howard was so supportive and helped my daughter. Even after Dad's funeral we still are very much supported something I really appreciate.

  • 5 Christine Harrison 30th Oct 2023

    I could have not asked for better services.Everything we requested was fulfilled.

  • 4 Geoffrey Fearn 3rd Oct 2023

    as I am still waiting the cremation and return of kaths personal possessions I cannot give a full review as yet

  • 4 Jane Richardson 18th Sep 2023

    Staff all very helpful and kind. My only comments would be
    1.I didn't appreciate that I would have to deal with the charity donations I thought that would all be taken care of.
    2. I understand that proofs of orders of service were sent to me to check but still a little disappointing that the error in the time of the funeral was not spotted by Bartrum's.
    However in all a good sevice.

  • 5 Linda Buckley 11th Sep 2023

  • 5 Ian Frisby 30th Jun 2023

    Nikki really looked after me from start to finish with the funeral plans took all the stress away from me. Very knowledgeable, considerate and kind really made me feel at ease. On the day before the funeral a gentleman called Mark phoned me up and took me through everything that would be happening on the day. When the funeral came around Mark kept to his word and made me feel at ease. All were very respectful from start to Finish.
    Many thanks for everything.

  • 5 David Eves 3rd Jan 2023

    My mother had moved to Fife to be near to me so her sudden death created potential issues since her plans regarding her death was based upon her still living in Dereham. Bartrums was my mother’s choice as the company had so ably managed arrangements for my father some years ago. Despite the distance the arrangements were perfect. All staff are professional, high attention to detail and provide a personal service. I could not recommend more highly.
