I would highly recommend Barkers. I just told them what I wanted and everything was sorted.  Their service was second to none, everything went without a hitch and nothing was too much trouble. 

Marie Watling 15th Feb 2021

A very professional service. Nothing was too much trouble and they gave our son the send off he deserved. Craig and Belynda are absolutely brilliant, they thought of everything and added special little touches that made all the difference to our special person. Their professional service has meant that we didn’t have to think of anything and has made this difficult time, more bearable. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The Watlings.

I am so pleased that I chose Barker Family Funeral Services to take care of my husband when he passed away on the 22nd of December 2020. Belynda and Craig have been so helpful and supportive throughout and we all felt my husband was looked after very   Respectfully and compassionately. It also has been really good to have a remembrance site to post photos and messages on giving me and my son and daughter great comfort. So thank you both very much Belynda and Craig Annette Nunn

    They are what they say a true family funeral service. Any query we had they always had or found out the answer.  Also where possible any special requests like driving a long way round to the crem to drive past an old family home. We highly recommend them and will definitely use them again.

    We found Barker Family Funeral Services to be very professional, caring and their attention to detail was beyond reproach. Belynda and Craig showed such empathy and understanding in every way at this difficult time. We have recommended Barker Family Funeral Services to many people and will continue to do so in the future. We cannot thank them enough for all their help. Kindest Regards, Stephen Chadwick-Shaw and Family

    Having to plan my husbands funeral, so young scared me. Barkers not only put me at ease, but I feel like i've made amazing friends. They completely went out of their way to grant my wishes and did everything they could to make the process as calm as possible, because of them my husband had the exact funeral I wanted for him. I will be forever in their debt for what they have done for me and my husband.

    Craig Barker replied
    We are happy to help in any way we can, Chris got the goodbye you both wanted and it was a privilege to be a part of it.
  • 5 Lynn Stevenson 23rd Aug 2020

    Craig and Belynda have been kind, helpful and undertstanding throughout the process of caring for my mother after her death. They talked me through what would happen and the cost and were always at the end of the phone if I needed clarification. Whatever type of funeral you want, at whatever cost, they are ready to help.

    Craig Barker replied
    It was an honor to look after your mum and I’m glad we were able to make it as smooth as possible B
