As a family we could not have asked for better service. Nicky and Sam treated us with such respect at all times and couldn't have been more friendly, caring and supportive. They certainly made a very difficult time much more of an ease for us. Thank you so much.

    A really loving, caring & thoughtful family business. They patiently talked me through every step of the process, making sure I understood what would be happening. They thoughtfully phoned several times to make sure I was okay & hadn't thought of anything to change or wasn't sure about. They also have a free follow-up Bereavement Counselling service if anyone feels they are struggling with grief. I cannot praise them enough & am stuck for words to express my thanks. Myself and my family certainly highly recommend them at a time of need. They are a lovely caring family firm.

    Sam and Nicky were most helpful, dignified and professional in dealing with the arrangements for my Mother’s funeral.  They were especially kind and supportive towards myself and my sister Helen which was very reassuring at such a sad time.

    Exceptional! Immensely kind, compassionate and thoughtful. Superbly professional and for a difficult time we couldn’t have wished for better partners to go through this with. Thank you. 

  • 5 Teresa Greenacre 16th Feb 2024

    We can't thank Sam & Nicky enough for helping us through this awful time. The considration, kindness and the support they gave was above & beyond. Our son David was in safe hands all the time he was with them. Thank you so much.

  • 5 Pauline Carter 11th Feb 2024

    Amazing service from start to finish and even after their caring service doesn't end. Thornalley's made an unbearable time losing a loved one a little more bearable knowing they are so well looked after. They thought of all the things we just couldn't deal with at the time.

    Can't thank them enough for being there for Mum.

  • 5 Bruce Riches 4th Feb 2024

    Totally satisfied is the only way I can describe the excellent service that I received from this local company. They all treated me very personally and looked after my deceased cousin with care and compassion.
    I cannot think of anything that could be improved, it was only by chance that this family company as used as the one in his will was no longer in business.
    Highly recommended, I will have no hesitation in using them again if needed.
    Big Thanks Bruce.

  • 5 James Brighton 1st Feb 2024

    We found Thornalley Funeral Services to be very professional while showing a great deal of compassion and consideration at a difficult time.

  • 5 Alan Cross 27th Jan 2024

    A very professional and caring service that helped to take a lot of stress away from the family. Guidance through procedural steps that needed to be caried out was very beneficial.

  • 5 Janet Bowman 20th Jan 2024

    We were very impressed with the service we received.   It was so reassuring that my husband was looked after so quickly.    Sam telephoned to confirm details and we made an appointment for the next day to meet him.   The office and staff were very welcoming and immediately put us at ease.   We were made a hot drink and Sam then explained everything so clearly and  we knew exactly what would happen. We then had  a follow up call to confirm and to make sure we were ok.
    We would not hesitate to recommend your services.

  • 5 Terry Barlow 20th Jan 2024

    There aren't enough stars in the rating system to recommend this family business more highly.
    The amazing personal care delivered by Nicky and Sam is unrivalled in any company I have ever dealt with.
    In such a sad occasion, which is always their business, they made my family feel totally at ease and gave us gracious and dignified treatment on the whole journey.
    Amazing!!🙏
