Amazing company , cannot fault them. Looked after my dad very well 

Ricardo Piccioni 7th Sep 2021

I cannot praise Shaun and Melanie from Country Funerals highly enough for the compassionate and professional manner in which they dealt with mum's funeral. From the very start of the process they were kind and considerate and dealt promptly and patiently with my questions and requests. I felt totally confident in their ability to handle everything and put on a great service and burial for mum, despite me being 10,000 miles away. They took away a lot of the stress during a very traumatic time for my father and me, and I cannot thank them enough for that. Ricardo.

Derek Kilcoyne 25th Jul 2021

At a very sad time for us ,Shaun & Melanie from country funerals helped us in so many ways including putting us in touch with Natalie Foster the celebrant who conducted the service. The entire process was handled with great care and compassion and we never once felt under pressure to make decisions. The service at the crematorium ,again , was conducted with great dignity. I would not hesitate to recommend Country Funerals to any one . Many ,Many thanks Shaun Melanie.

    Shaun and Melanie have and still are being excellent.  I lost my Wife unexpectedly at a young age.  I met a number of local Funeral Director’s and spoke to an online option who claimed to be 60% cheaper.  My primary aim of who would I trust to take care of my beautiful wife.  I question and challenged them all, at no point did the team at Country fail, whilst being completely honest and authentic.  Nothing too much trouble, honest if I was looking for something that I didn’t need.   They told me that they could pretty much do anything that me and my family wanted but never tried to up-sell. I wanted to see my Wife every day up to and including the day of the funeral.  When asking about time to do this, Shaun’s stance was 100% at what time fit me and not opening times. On the day of the funeral Shaun directed the event from start to finish, leading his team and managing our family and the situation with empathy and consideration. In my opinion Country delivered everything that I was looking for and my Wife was looked after with care and dignity.  Surprisingly the price was the best amongst all four Funeral Directors also.  Thank you Shaun and Melanie you are completely credible with great integrity and authenticity.

    Melonie and Sean from the start provided a fantastic service. They were so supportive and fully understood our needs, nothing was too much trouble. They helped us and held our hands through a very difficult time while explaining everything clearly. I really don’t think there is anything we would have changed or done differently. Thank you so much to you both. You did a great job for us.

    I cannot tell you how grateful we are as a family that Country Funerals conducted proceedings for my mother’s funeral. From the very first contact with Melanie, to day of the funeral and after we were treated with compassion, care and utter respect. On the day, Shaun and the rest of the team were wonderful. Thank you all so much.

  • 5 Jacqueline Randall 12th Nov 2019

    I can only say that Melissa and Shaun of Country Funerals Towcester were extremely kind and attentive with regard to my husband's funeral. They put me at ease and helped me to plan everything. Nothing was too much trouble. They took away the stress and upset leaving me feeling calm and feeling able to cope. They turned a sad occasion into a special memory.

  • 5 Anthony Cherington 30th Apr 2019

    We chose country funerals on the basis of the reviews we had seen online. They seemed to care more, and their pricing information was clear and competitive. We were not disappointed, everything we had read turned out to be true.  Melanie and Shaun, who run the business, are two of the nicest and kindest people we have ever met, nothing is too much trouble. Everything’ ran like clockwork on the day, and the price came in right on the quote - no hidden costs. I understand other funeral services often massively hike the final price through a series of hidden charges.   I really can’t fault country funerals and would definitely use them again when that unfortunate time comes. Highly recommended without reservation. Thank you Melanie and Shaun for making a sad time bearable. Tony and Carolyn 

  • 5 Molly Lewis 29th Mar 2019

    Shaun & Melanie are absolutely fantastic at what they do. The whole process from start to finish was effortless and nothing was ever too much. At a time where emotions were running high, Shaun & Melanie were a huge support to myself & my family, and really took the time to listen and understand exactly what we wanted to achieve with my Mum's send off. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you so much!

  • 5 Margaret Charlesworth 25th Feb 2019
