    From start to finish, Fielder and Son were amazing. They completely took the weight of organising Mum's funeral from our shoulders. They were kind, respectful and efficient. We felt supported every step of the way. The cost of the funeral was extremely good also. They made the day one in which we didn't need to worry about a thing. We can't praise them highly enough. Thank you.

    We would like to express our great thanks to Vic and his staff who dealt with the funeral of our Mother in a such a wonderful and dignified manner. They helped and guided me and my family with such dignity through what is always such a difficult time, always being on hand to assist and advise on any concerns we had. It really was, to us, a 5 star service.

    John T and all the support team at Fielders have just been absolutely wonderful from beginning to end. I can't thank them enough. They gave a real human touch to the whole experience, and were compassionate, detailed, patient and kind throughout. We got delayed at the gravesite while waiting for a guest, and they just stayed patient and respectful of the circumstances the whole time! My heart was full. I can't recommend Fielders highly enough. Very best to all of you going forward! LK 3/9/23
