Thanking Ray and everyone at Thornalley, and Janet the civil celebrant, who took the utmost care and attention to detail regards Mums (Nick's) funeral. Nothing was too much trouble for how we wanted it to be, and the service was conducted in a sensitive, compassionate and personal manner. If there could be a "good" funeral, this was it. Could not have gone better. And the sun was shining, they probably organised that too ! Charlie, Greg, Matt and the family

I thought the service provided was excellent, however I was a little unsure about the music playing in the chapel of rest. Otherwise, the service was very helpful in difficult circumstances. Thank You

  • 5 Elizabeth Sellers 26th Jun 2022

    Thornalley Funeral Services were very sympathetic in their dealings with our loss.Our Uncle died earlier than we had expected and so our sorrow was greater than we had thought it would be-but all through the process Thornalley were helping us with our situation.They were all so kind and continually rang us up to check that we were alright and if there was anything further they could do to ease our loss. We could not thank them enough and would absolutely recommend their service for anyone who needed them.

  • 5 Carol Townsend 11th Jun 2022

    Thornally Funeral Directors we’re the directors of choice to manage the funeral of my late husband. I knew they had an excellent reputation and this was borne out in our experience. 
    From the moment I made a initial enquiry to the conclusion of the funeral their kindness, caring and unwavering professionalism carried and supported us.
    The superb website helped our family to prepare in the peace of our home so that when we arrived at the office to discuss the funeral our thinking had clarified and this made the planning process so much easier.
    All the staff we met we gentle and even when we requested some changes it was no trouble and we were reassured at every step of the way.
    The printing service was excellent and the art work skilfully and sensitively executed.
    Thornally communicated with us throughout and on the day of the funeral their professionalism was exemplary.
    It was a huge relief to us all that they were there, behind
    us, in control,and our support.
    Thanyou to Andrew Thornally and all the staff.
