We cannot thank Julie and her colleagues at  Kevin Matthews enough for all their help. We were given all the advice and guidance we could have possibly needed. Julie took care of all arrangements for our cousin's funeral, and on the day we had a lovely service taken by Tracy. All those attending were also most appreciative.

    The service I received from them was second to non, at a time when you are at your lowest ebb.  All the staff were sympathetic, kind and respectful, nothing was too much for them.  I cannot thank them enough.  Tina  Garraway

    I cannot praise Kevin Mathews enough for the service provided when my wife passed away. It must be very difficult to make detailed arrangements when the timescales between death and funeral are often short, but Kevin's staff and the independent celebrant Tracy Jones handled everything with great care, sensitivity and professional attention. The small, unexpected touches make all the difference.

  • 5 Victoria Prichard 13th Dec 2016

    From the first time I contacted Julie, until my father was buried the support I received from Kevin Matthews Funeral service was outstanding. My father died in Taunton but wanted to return to his home in Weedon Bec. Tim came and collected my father from Musgrove Park Hospital, and made everything as simple and easy as it could be . Polite and professional, again the service was outstanding.  It all seemed so simple but the planning and attention to detail that was evident by the smooth progress of the service and burial.

  • 5 June Coomber 2nd Dec 2016

    On behalf of the family I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to Julie and the team at Kevin Matthews for the lovely send off you gave dad on Thursday 24th November. Right from the word go you put us at our ease and guided us through a sad time with professionalism and understanding. Everyone said what a brilliant service it was from beginning to end. The Celebrant, Tracy Jones, even though she didn't know dad, seemed to capture his personality beautifully. Once again, please accept our heartfelt thanks.

  • 5 Paul McAllister 29th Nov 2016

    I can not thank Kevin and his wonderful staff enough .  From the moment we arrived at the Northampton  office,  we were treated with great kindness and respect. All our request and questions regarding the funeral were answered in an honest and understanding manner. Kevin and his staff made a very sad day, less painful by the sheer professinisum they conducted themselves with. I can not recommended these people enough, and when my time comes have instructed the family to use Kevin.

  • 5 Linda Kier 30th Oct 2016

    Kevin Matthews Funeral Services have given my family first class service from the moment we meet to discuss the arrangements to the day of the service. For my brothers funeral this month, the whole service and tribute from Tracy Jones was just first class. In fact all who attended the service stated that it was one of the best services they have attended. Tracy had captured my brother's personality and passions just right. We as a family of Robert Hale, thank them very much.

  • 5 Penelope Roper 24th Oct 2016

    Dear Kevin and Nikki, You could not have been more efficient, kind or considerate. All was accomplished with calm dignity and I shall never know how the men managed to heft Marjie`s coffin over the rough ground in the cemetery because I couldn`t bear to look. You were all marvellous. A big " thank you". Sincerely, Penny.

  • 5 Coleen Wilkins 21st Oct 2016

  • 5 Jean Heavens 16th Oct 2016

    I could not have asked for nicer people to deal with my husband's funeral. Everything was perfect and conducted just like they said it would be. Tracey Jones who did the service for me was brilliant. I would like to say a big thank you to all at Kevin Matthews for making a difficult day manageable. From myself and children thanks

    The personal care & support I received from Kevin, Phil & the team was amazing. It made a very upsetting time so much easier & less stressful. They didn't try to push any extra expense on me & called to let me know if I'd forgotten anything so the service went smoothly. I cannot express enough my heartfelt thanks, Corrina Alphonso
