A lovely mix of the traditional for the funeral itself and the less formal in dealing with me. Nothing was too much trouble.

Patricia Noble 25th May 2024

We have used Fielders on a few occasions,we have always been very satisfied. My mother's recent funeral was exceptional, the care shown to Mum and all my family, by Jon Kirkman and the team was amazing. They are extremely professional, knowledgeable and above all else, compassionate and caring. They really understand how difficult it is when one loses a loved one. Nothing was too much trouble and paid attention to the smallest of details. Thank you Jon and your team, for such efficiency and care.

  • 5 Anne Steadman 29th Apr 2024

    Jon Kirkman is kind, patient and professional. He embodies all the attributes  needed of someone making arrangements at a time which is upsetting and distressing. Jon made sure that we were happy with arrangements at every stage, answered all questions promptly and made us feel that he really cared about us and our Mum. On the day of the funeral, one of  the pall bearers was
    unavoidable delayed; Jon stepped in and replaced him so that our desire that Mum be carried in and not wheeled in could be satisfied. This meant a great deal to us and was another very clear illustration of Jon doing everything to make a loved one’s funeral as special and seamless as possible. 
    I cannot recommend Jon and Fielders highly enough:  the initial meeting at our home; the correspondence about and editing of the order of service; the care taken with Mum and the kindness shown when I visited her in the Chapel of Rest; the attention to detail throughout; the respect shown to us all throughout and particularly on the day itself; and the way he took charge of the  invoices  for the flowers and the reception, adding them to the Fielders’ invoice  for a one-off payment from the bank; all of this was service of the highest quality arranged by someone deeply committed to ensuring families feel well supported and cared for at such a challenging time. Thank you. 

  • 5 Anne Bailey 29th Apr 2024

    From the first contact right the way through what could have been a difficult time all of the people we met at Fielders were professional, caring, considerate and supportive. We felt we were in safe hands.  Lucy Horsman, the Funeral Director, guided us through the process, answering our questions promptly and ensuring everything went smoothly. Alfred would have loved her.  Thankyou.

    I cannot thank Jon and the team enough for the love, support and compassion they have shown myself and my family during this difficult time. We were gently guided through the whole process by Jon, who whilst allowing us to make the decisions of how and what we wanted for the funeral, took care of all arrangements including the celebrant, flowers and even arranging a venue for the funeral tea.
    Thank you to you all, you are amazing.
