Dianna Yvonne Carver 17th Apr 2018

J G Fielder and Son were so very supportive, kind and thoughtful in the organisation of my fathers funeral. True professionals who took all the stress out of the organisation of the funeral so that we could grieve as a family, safe in the knowledge that my fathers wishes were being met. We were very grateful to them.

John Thomas Golden 17th Apr 2018

As I stated in my "Thank you" card to John (Tattersall), the funeral was handled in a caring and competent way, all those who attended remarked on how well organised everything was. So thank you to all staff involved and especially John (Tattersall). John Golden.
