Stephen Carter 24th Jun 2022

Excellent service from J G Fielder and Jon Kirkman who made a very sad time a much easier experience.  Can’t recommend enough.  Thank you to Jon and all the staff, and to the lovely bearer who came in my car with us so we didn’t get lost on the way to the crem (sorry I can’t remember his name).  

Nicole Lindstrom 13th Jun 2022

I would give them an 'extraordinary' rating. John Tattersall was the best funeral director I could have ever hoped for: exceptionally kind; incredibly intuitive about what kind of funeral I wanted, even in the fog of my grief; so responsive in organizing every detail (and even things I didn't know I needed); and supported me every step of the way. Thank you so much, John, and J G Fielder & Son.

Kenneth John Spanton 11th Jun 2022

Excellent service . The funeral director John was first class, both professional and sympathetic to our loss. The catering at the reception was also very good and reasonably priced. Gill Taylor the civil funeral celebrant who conducted the service did a excellent job and described Janet’s life perfectly. Thank you to all for a job well done.
