  • 5 Roy Lee 12th Feb 2024

    We were bowled over with the service we received from Thornalley Funeral Services nothing was to much trouble for them. We had some different ideas that we wanted, including a six foot cardboard cut out of John Wayne standing beside Jane during the service and the pallbearer's fuchsia pink ties. They found us the perfect coffin and matching casket they helped sort out everything we needed and were kind and supportive all the way through.
    We cannot recommend Thornalley Funeral Services enough they were brilliant.
