    Country funerals made the whole process of organising my Mum's funeral very easy and straightforward, everyone is very respectful and patient through the whole process and exceeded my expectations with their communication and running the proceedings on the day. Highly recommended.

    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!
