Rhian and her team were brilliant from our initial enquiry through to the delivery of the funeral on the day. All of our requests were dealt with in a sincere and thoughtful way. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Excellent, kind, compassionate service. Nothing was too much trouble for them to ensure we had the kind of funeral which we wanted for dearly loved late sister. Would highly recommend this company. Thank you.

    Excellent service , professional , nothing is too much trouble , will always recommend highly 

  • 5 Neil Price 3rd Apr 2018

    We couldn't have wished for a better funeral director following my mother's recent passing. From first contact, Rhian was the consumate professional. Her experience was invaluable in guiding and organising everything from the Church and crematorium, order of service, music, cars through to the memorial stone and internment service. She made a difficult time much easier. We felt we and Mum received a much more personal service than if we had used one of the out of town funeral directors. My sisters and I would wholeheartedly recommend Rhian's services.

    Excellent say's it all.

  • 5 Bertie Angel 17th Sep 2017

    Rhian did everything she could to ensure that this was as painless an experience as possible for my family and myself. She was friendly,but professional,and sensitive to our needs, remaining cheerful even when I changed my mind about something. I would recommend R.Greaves & co to take care of your needs in an unhappy time like the loss of a loved one.

  • 5 Duncan Hill 1st Sep 2017

    On the recent passing of a close family member, we found Rhian was sensitive, supportive and professional. She listened, was patient as we talked and even laughed along with us over a particular memory. Rhian ensured that we had all the information we needed to ensure that everything required was completed smoothly. She offered a first class service in all ways. Thank you, you made a difficult time easier to bear.

  • 5 Stephen Meakin 15th Aug 2017

    when my wife passed away my life was turned upside down..Organising her funeral was the last thing i wanted to do. I turned to Rhian at R.Greaves & co to help me through what i believe is one of the hardest things a husband must ever have to do. She was very caring to myself and my family, Helping to steer us through all that we needed to do to make our last moments with Helen as special and personal as possible. I am truly thankful for all she did for us. xx

  • 5 Sally Scott 2nd Aug 2017

    Whilst this is a very sad time, Rhian was absolutely fantastic, she is a true "Gem" took all the stress out of arranging our Mum's funeral, dealt with everything and nothing was too much trouble for her at all. Would highly recommend Rhian.

  • 5 Susan Morgan 24th Jul 2017

  • 5 David Carter 22nd Jul 2017

    Nothing was too much trouble for R Greaves & Co. Dealt with us professionally and compassionately at all times. Thank you.

  • 5 Sophie Dorey 9th Jul 2017

    Rhian did my grandad Alfs funeral beautifully. It was his request that only she could be the one to do it and he was completely spot on. The establishments way of adding celebration to a loved ones life with its colour and way of displaying the bodies of family members is tasteful and leaves you feeling comforted that even then after their life has ended, their bodies are still so cherished and cared for in a loving manner. Even though funerals and seeing a loved one pass on is extremely sad and upsetting. Rhian has a way like no other that makes you remember those who have passed on with fonder thoughts, so instead of leaving feeling sad that you will never see them again, you instead leave feeling comforted and reminded of all that was so wonderful about that person and the life they lived and how lucky you were to have known them.

  • 5 Jane Quinn 15th Jun 2017

    Rhian made a very difficult time for our family a little more bearable.  She was sensitive, professional and supportive.  Nothing was too much trouble, she was endlessly patient and understanding.  We are happy we entrusted our loved one to her care.  Thank you.

  • 5 Elaine Edwards 7th May 2017

    Rhian has handled the arrangements for both my mothers' and my aunts' funerals with the upmost care and attention. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a sympathetic and efficient service. E. Edwards.

  • 5 Edwin Hargraves 10th Apr 2017

    Rhian made everything go so well on the day of Shelagh's Thanksgiving Service and Burial. No matter how unusual some of my requests may have been they were all carried out without a hitch. Many friends have told me the celebration service and burial was a wonderful tribute to a very special lady, and this would not have been possible without Rhian's steadfast work and support.

  • 5 Kim Band 29th Mar 2017

    Rhian was most helpful, never pushy and kept us well informed throughout the whole process. On the day of the funeral we found Rhian to be very professional but with a personnel touch.

  • 5 Ann West 13th Mar 2017

    Rhian was very flexible and transparent. It was good to know that mum was in safe hands.

  • 5 Jane Wilkinson-Shute 15th Feb 2017

    From the moment we first met Rhian, I felt immediately at ease. Rhian gave us all the time we needed, before, during & after the funeral arrangements. At such a difficult time in my life it was a comfort to have such a caring, competent & yet very professional person "in charge". Any worries or concerns I had were dealt with straight away. I cannot thank Rhian enough for all she did for us. I have no hesitation in recommending her services. Thank you.
