Hayley owen right from the first phone call was so considerate, helpful and reassuring she would do everything I wanted rather than dictate to me what should be done.  The manner in which  the body was laid out showed she had treated it with respect. She kept me informed throughout and was so kind on the funeral day and led me through the entire process. I certainly would recommend this young girl who not only has beautiful premises but her Daimler cars are very impressive. Those waiting at the crematorium for our arrival, certainly noticed!
