Jeanne Fletcher 20th Sep 2022

On our very first contact with Fielders  we were assigned to Jon Kirkman who carried out a very professional and sympathetic service which took all the worry out of what was for me a stressful situation.  Every detail was taken care of in a quiet and unobtrusive manner.  This served to in-still confidence in Fielders as funeral directors.  Thank you!

Jon and his team were highly professional organising all aspects of the funeral and thereby taking this burden from us at a difficult time. I would thoroughly recommend his services.

  • 5 Alison Carpenter 23rd Aug 2022

    Fielder and Son Funeral Directors was selected by me even before my mother passed away, as I found the history of this company a very sincere one. From the moment we engaged with Jon Kirkman we felt fully supported in a sad situation. Communication was excellent meaning we were regularly informed of the progress of funeral arrangements, and everything was taken care of seamlessly and without any drama. The respect and dignity afforded my mother in her final days at the Chapel of Rest were exemplary, and all her wishes were fulfilled completely. Thank you

    Jon Kirkman and his team run their experienced family business with the utmost professionalism and kindness. We were treated with care and consideration, empathy and sympathy, throughout the planning and organisation of the funeral as well as on the day itself.  All our queries and requests were handled with  such care by all staff and we are very grateful for the way in which they walked alongside us on this difficult journey in life.

  • 5 Jason Walsh 7th Aug 2022

    J G Fielder & Son took care of my mum’s funeral arrangements and were sympathetic, professional and respectful all in equal and appropriate measure. They explained very clearly how things would happen and acted as the central point of liaison between all parties, and this also included from a financial perspective. This made the whole process very easy to negotiate, both emotionally and practically, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to other families. From our experience, you really can rely on them.

    The Fielders team did a wonderful job with my wife’s funeral. 
    They are extremely professional and clearly take honour and pride in their work. 
    Special thanks to John Tattersall, a genuinely lovely fella.
    John got to know us a little and suggested a celebrant he thought would suit us and found the perfect match with Gill. 
    Many thanks to all of you, you did Cindy and I so proud. 
    With my warmest regards,
    Phil.

    The whole process was professional and faultless, and a lot less traumatic than it could have been. Great communications, with plenty of updates, and all our requirements were dealt with quickly.

    I have used Fielders before and I can honestly say the service I have received has been beyond excellent.
    From the moment I made the first call to inform them of a bereavement they were very sympathetic and totally professional.
    Jon from the very beginning just made the whole process very straight forward guiding me through everything. I could not ask for more.
    I can thoroughly recommend JG Fielders for total professional service
