Dave Taylor 28th Feb 2018

The personal service and attention to detail we received from John Tattersall was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and he took care to provide all the information requested , and checked that personal items were placed with our aunt as requested. He was sensitive to our feelings and explained how the service would proceed.  At a time that is never easy for families , I would definitely recommend this company.

  • 5 Jane Griffith 28th Feb 2018

    The recent sudden death of my husband was the most traumatic and stressful event I have lived through. From the first phone call in a shocked and dazed state they helped my son and I through a process that no one ever wants to have to go through.
    Chris was kind thoughtful and helpful and we were able to trust him and his team with not only all the formalities but the personal requests worries or concerns that cropped up.
    They enabled us to say our goodbyes and have the service we needed.
    Thank you. Jane

    Fielders were fantastic, especially Keith Houlston.

Thank you all so much. Liz Freeman

    We used fielders after my partner had used them previously for her mums passing.
    From the moment we contacted Fielders to the day of the funeral they couldn’t of done enough. Chris was particularly lovely and made everything feel so calm and stress free. 
    The options from the casket, to flowers, hymns, and choice of our own design for the order of service booklet was seemless.
    They certainly are A very kind and thoughtful funeral directors and I certainly won’t hesitate to sing there praises over and over. 
    We can’t thank them enough for all there help.

    Highly recommend Fielders for their professionalism and compassionate service.

The resulting funeral was the best possible memorial for my Mother and everyone who attended commented on and complimented the service received from Fielders.
