Dominic Gilbert 21st Apr 2021

I'm so thankful it was Shayne who took on my Mum's funeral. Even though he knew her personally so the day itself was particularly difficult for him, he was a consummate professional, always at the end of the phone to help planning and helpful and dignified on the day. He didn't even mind when I called at 3am to notify him. An absolutely lovely man for whom nothing is too much trouble, even taking on all upfront funeral expenses to minimise our worries and stress for the funeral. I can't recommend Shayne highly enough.

Shirley Cutting 20th Apr 2021

We as a family have used Shayne's funeral service before and would not think about going anywhere else. Shayne and his team are compassionate and professional at all times and there is nothing he wouldn't do to help the family. He treated Billy (David)with the upmost respect and we thank him and his team for everything. From all of the family

Margaret Gooderham 19th Apr 2021

Shayne showed nothing but respect and compassion for Dad and the family, from the first phone call to the end of the service. He made everything easy for us at a very difficult time. If ever there was a time you need a service to rely on its when you lose a loved one and we would not hesitate to recommend Shayne to anyone.

  • 5 Veronica Lake 27th Nov 2020

    At a very emotional time Shayne was very patient and caring and when we (my niece and I) went to visit Michael at the chapel everything was very relaxed. Michael just looked as he did when going to a Masonic meeting, dressed very smartly. The square and compasses on the coffin was a very fitting tribute.

    SHAYNE STORK replied
    Dear Veronica, Thank you for your comments glad I was able to help you at this time.I always try to give a personal service and I think Mike would of liked the square and compasses on his coffin and the guard of honour from his Lodge on the day.

  • 5 Shirley Pegg 23rd Oct 2020

    Where do I start? I found Shayne Stork and his team excellent in all ways. He was very helpful and caring in arranging the funeral services for my late husband, even going as far as joining the family in wearing Norwich city face masks and ties as Noel was an avid supporter of the city. Everything ran smoothly from the time my husband passed away to the actual service. We had pre-booked the funeral services beforehand which helped a lot. I would definitely recommend him to anyone 100 percent. Shirley Pegg

    SHAYNE STORK replied
    Wow, what a wonderful review . Thank you so much,  such lovely comments are very humbling. It means so much to us to read. Thank you again 
  • 5 Poppy Applegate 21st Oct 2020

    There will never be enough words to say how thankful and grateful I am to Shayne and all his team. From the moment James was is his care I felt at ease and I knew that he we would be well taken care of. Nothing that I asked Shayne was too much trouble and I knew that what ever I asked I would get an honest answer. Another thing I will always be so grateful for was how amazing Shayne was with my daughter on the day of the funeral he made sure he communicated with her and made her feel included something I know means a lot to her. Planning James funeral was something I never imagined and was one of the hardest things I will ever have to do but Shayne went above and beyond and made the process so much easier he ensured that James had a send off that represented who he truly was. I just want to say a massive thank you to all the team but most of all Shayne who really is an amazing man who is so good at his job and has so much genuine care and compassion not only for the family but for James as well. So thank you so much for making one of the hardest things in my life just a little bit easier. Poppy 

    SHAYNE STORK replied
    Dear Poppy, reading this brought a tear to my eye , you have all been so brave and strong and I know you are going to make James proud of you I will always be here for you and your family for any support I can give you. All my best to you and the family please keep in touch.
