They were very helpful and nothing was to much trouble.

Ruth, Andrew & James Moroney 7th Sep 2019

David Clarke at the Rainworth branch made a very difficult time much, much easier for us.  He’s so caring and compassionate, an expert in his profession and an absolute gentleman.  I genuinely don’t think we could ever thank him enough for everything he did for us.

    David and his staff conducted themselves with dignity and professionalism through the whole process of my dad's funeral. I cannot speak highly enough of the way they communicated with us as a family, ensuring that all our needs were met.

  • 5 Tracy Miller 5th Feb 2019

    The service and care that my family and myself received from David and his team at Mansfield was fantastic. Nothing seemed to faze David, everything was organised and in hand and nothing was too much trouble. At a time when we find it difficult to cope with the simplest of tasks and are unable to think clearly, it's very reassuring to have someone to go to who understands completely how you feel and treats you with compassion and respect, regardless of how you are dealing with your grief. Simply cannot thank David and the team enough.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this very kind and detailed review and in particular your kind words about the support, guidance and care provided by David at this difficult and confusing time. We are pleased that he was able to make this sad time a little easier for you. Thank you.
