A fantastic and professional service for our family through this very difficult time. Excellent communication throughout the period making the whole process a lot easier. We have had so many nice comments on the service that would have made my Dad proud. Thank you for everything.

Paula Goode 27th Jul 2019

The service provided was excellent from start to finish. Because of the various difficulties involved in the circumstances following Alan's death, it could not have been easy to make all the necessary arrangements. In the end, it all worked out well and the funeral went off as well as anyone could have expected and hoped for. Mark was his usual competent self, making everyone feel at ease during the making of the arrangements and on the day itself. This review is being written by Alan's brother John, as it was my e mail address that was used for the sake of convenience. I am sure that Paula, Alan's daughter, would endorse what I have said and I have forwarded your e mail to her so that you may get a response from her as well. Many thanks for everything. John A Goode.

    Thank you John for your lovely comments. We have had a super working relationship over the seventeen years that I have been in Nottingham and I always feel that such a time must be doubly difficult for you as a clergyman and also as a family member. I felt it a very touching moment in the service when you gave the reading and, as always when I meet the same family for another funeral, how emotional it can be but also how much of a privilege it is to be of service. Mark.

    From start to finish the whole process was made as easy as possible for those arranging the funeral. We were visited at home to ascertain our requirements for the funeral and every option was explained clearly and our wishes noted. On the day everything went smoothly , without any hitches and the mourners cared for in a friendly and dignified manner. I can not speak highly enough of the service provided. Dennis A Bambury
