I have nothing but praise for Feilder and Sons, as I am 400miles away from York in Falmouth, Cornwall I had to rely heavily upon them and I'm pleased to say I arrived in York the evening before the cremation and only met face to face the following day. Everything went smoothly and I thank all concerned.

Never a good time to deal with anyone for the first time but in all honesty Hayley Owen's team have been particularly helpful in respecting my father's last wishes and treated me with great kindness throughout. There's something reassuring about a small independent business that treats me as a client instead of a case number that needs processing. We haven't completed it all yet but I have no worries.

I couldn't have been happier with the service I received. I was put to ease straight away and felt alot of the stress was taken off my shoulders. My mum got the funeral she deserved and now I can relax and grieve in peace knowing that.

Hayley is so caring and compassionate and goes above and beyond to make sure that everything is right and just the way you want it. Her professionalism and gentle nature was exactly what we needed at such a sensitive and painful time. We can't thank Hayley and her team enough for giving my husband a beautiful send off. I would highly recommend their services to family and friends.
