Considerate and caring people who go out of their way to help in any way possible.

We wish to thank Jane, Steven and Suzanne and staff at White Rose for all their care and attention, especially Jane who made a horrible time so much easier by being genuinely there for myself and husband at the loss of his mother, Doreen Berry every detail possible was sorted and all the arrangements were sorted without any issues. We are pleased that we have used a local funeral director who also works with others in the local community, e.g. we have found the florist and floral tributes from Mapplewell florist amazing. Debbie from Hearts and Flowers florist, my go to florist in the future for any floral needs. If there can be any such thing as a nice funeral Doreen had that with all the details personalized to her to give her the best we possibly could at an affordable price. I would recommend White Rose funeral Directors to anyone Thank you. Teresa Berry

Our heartfelt thanks to Stephen and Suzanne at White Rose Funeral Services for the kindness, empathy and compassion we were shown from our first meeting right through to the day we laid our Mother to rest. Their kindness has helped us through the most difficult time and to have been able to give Mum such a beautiful funeral on a very tight budget has helped us immensely. I would recommend this service without hesitation.
