From the moment we first met you, through to the day of dad's funeral. Emma and the whole team were absolutely brilliant. From the start I knew my dad was well looked after and couldn't ask for more in such awful time. you made my family feel at ease and really helped with funeral arrangements etc. Things could not have gone any smoother or more professionally. Thank you and would Highly recommend.

  • 5 Caroline Kett 6th Oct 2021

    I can not thank R B Copping enough for their kindness and professionalism throughout. We were both ‘carried’ and gently looked after at our worst of times.  Our wishes were met with such sensitivity and understanding. Thank you in particular to Emma who was outstanding in ever possible aspect, from visiting the family at home, where infinite time was given, to guidance regarding viewing my father and the respect given to my dearest father throughout and  on his final journey.  Our wish for an exhibition of his Art in the Church and our choice of somewhat complicated, multiple pieces of music were facilitated with ease by Emma to ensure the day was a truly beautiful and sensitive tribute. There was an in-depth knowledge and efficient coordination that meant any undue stresses were taken off the family.  My family and I  are truly indebted to this wonderful firm. 

    Emma Stork replied
    Dear Caroline, thank you so much for leaving such a complimentary review of our services, it really does mean so much to us all. Glad that we were able to fulfil all of your requirements. Take care Emma

    I was very impressed with your attention to detail, and the respect that you and your colleagues gave to my Mum at the funeral, and for the time she was with you. It is never an easy time, but the courteous and professional behaviour from you was really appreciated by us all, and made a difficult experience bearable.

  • 5 Steve Butler 10th Sep 2021

    We would just like to say an enormous thanks for everything you have done regarding Dad’s Funeral and preparation. The day went perfectly and everyone , and I mean everyone , commented on what a wonderful service and gathering it was. These things are never easy , and obviously it was our first time being directly involved in the preparation and the service itself. Four weeks or so ago it all appeared rather daunting if we’re honest but you made it so easy and seamless for us.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details.
