Bethany Woolacott 22nd Dec 2019

Tracey and her team at A.E Stoodley (Colin, Ellie, Roger and the pallbearers) went above and beyond to help make such a sad occasion with the loss of my dear Mum, a lot more bearable. Nothing  was ever too much trouble. There was always someone on hand for our needs 24 hours a day. The funeral that was held was dealt with in such a professional manner. Tracey herself took the service and as funerals go, it was perfect. I know that my Mum would of approved, especially to “Dancing Queen!”Many thanks again for all of your hard work. Beth Woolacott

    Colin Robert's couldn't have been more helpful and supportive to help us to put together a fitting farewell to Michael. It was as he would have wanted a small family gathering to celebrate his life - it was perfect. Michael had cut the advert out of the paper himself and put it in a safe place. Thank you.

  • 5 Nicholas Whitsun-Jones 25th Nov 2019

    A first class service throughout. Couldn't have been better.

  • 5 Valerie Beckett 25th Nov 2019

    Our family could not have wished for more caring and sensitive support in arranging our mother's funeral. Colin's thoughtful manner, guidance and wisdom at a difficult time was wonderful and truly appreciated.

  • 5 Christine Ball 5th Nov 2019

    I was fully supported at all times and the funeral was conducted in a dignified manner. The death was unexpected so the help was greatly appreciated and I could not have hoped for more. So glad Stoodleys were there for myself and family. 

  • 5 Mary Herbert 5th Nov 2019

    We were all impressed with the sensitivity and compassion that was afforded us by the team at stoodleys, especially Colin who made sure the details we requested were met. It was a gruelling process but they helped ensure that all that we had asked for was realised As a family we would highly recommend them to others.

  • 5 Andrew Jones 30th Oct 2019

    Mum had a prepaid plan dating from the last century. I was contacted by Stoodleys the morning after she left us. From beginning to end we have been completely satisfied with the service and are happy to recommend this directors without hesitation. Dad wanted a simple occasion and we we were not encouraged to make the event any more than was originally planned. Thank you.

    Tracey Warren replied
    Thank yiou Andrew, That is very kind of you. Best wishes Colin
  • 5 Victoria Griggs 27th Oct 2019

    Stoodleys are extraordinary people. From the first time we called them up until the funeral and beyond, Tracey, Colin and Ellie were each so caring and compassionate. They handled every aspect of the process with sensitivity, care, humanity and empathy. They made the process of handling the practical considerations following my father’s death and organising the funeral as personal and stress-free as possible. I cannot speak highly enough of them. They have a true vocation for helping grieving families and they take the time to get to know you as individuals and will take all of the stress and pressure away from organising the perfect tribute to your loved one. Particular mention must go to Colin who came in on his week off to lead my father’s funeral having got to know us, and Tracey and Ellie are both wonderful too.

    Tracey Warren replied
    Hi Victoria, Thank you so much for your kind words, they mean a great deal to us. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your father's beautiful service. It was a privilege.
  • 5 Claire Tucker 22nd Oct 2019

    Colin and Ellie gave us so much comfort throughout this sad process. We contacted Colin in the middle of the night and he put us at ease and told us he could help from the word go. We can't recommend Colin and his team highly enough, he worked hard to execute our plans. Thank you Colin.

  • 5 David Veysey 22nd Oct 2019

    I cannot praise highly enough this company and its people. They have handled both my fathers and now my mothers passing with dignity and sympathy and I cannot fail to offer my personal recommendations.

  • 5 Mike Slater 22nd Oct 2019

    From the very first chat to the interment and beyond they were considerate and efficient. Faultless.

  • 5 Mary Chapman 26th Sep 2019

    Everyone at Stoodleys was extremely professional, caring and helpful in looking after us, including coming out to us on a bank holiday. Tracey, who handled the funeral arrangements in a very personal way, was well organised, extremely helpful in gently guiding us through all the detail, both before and during the service (which she attended) to ensure everything went smoothly, and even checked with us the next day how we were. We had full confidence that everything would be handled with care and dignity which was very comforting at such a difficult time.

  • 5 Sammy Medhurst 4th Sep 2019

    I can't recommend stoodley and son enough for all there help during our loss. They were so helpful and caring and put all there time and effort into making rich's funeral special.

  • 5 Hilary Royle 22nd Aug 2019

    At a very difficult time for us Tracey and her team were very understanding and sympathetic. They were extremely efficient organising everything quickly. They took all the stress away from the family. I highly recommend them. 

  • 5 Pat Cooke 16th Jul 2019

    I honestly cannot thank them enough, they allowed me to make the choices that my husband and I had discussed while giving me advice, they also dealt with a difficult matter in the most professional and calm manner. I would highly recommend this company.

  • 5 Richard Hooper 16th Jul 2019

    I cannot thank A.E Stoodley & Son enough for all the support and help. They were amazing helping my family and I through this very difficult time.

  • 5 Stephen Wills 6th Jul 2019

    Having used A.E.Stoodley three times previously over the years i knew exactly what to expect for my mum's funeral, and i was not disappointed, nothing was to much trouble for Colin. Thoroughly professional, caring, friendly and respectful.

  • 5 Alison Bawden 5th Jul 2019

    This is the second time, Tracy and everyone at Stoodley and Son have provided funeral services for our family; the first being when our mum passed away in 2016 and this time, arranging the funeral of our dear Dad. Every aspect of the funeral was dealt with sensitivity, empathy and the utmost professionalism at what was an extremely difficult and sat time for us all Tracy is organised, helpful and very compassionate...she cares about her clients and it really shows! I would thoroughly recommend & endorse the firm to anyone requiring funeral services.

  • 5 Chris Baker 4th Jul 2019

    We were so pleased with the help and support that we received from everyone at A E stoodlys

  • 5 Louisa Ibrahim 1st Jul 2019

    Unfortunately I lost my mum to cancer on the 22/6/19. I first contact stoodley at the end of 2018 as mum had a few months to live and had to face the truth that mum would be leaving us. Mum fought for longer than we all thought but now she is in heaven. Tracy and Colin have been so supportive from day one, kind, caring and I will always be grateful for the support they gave me. The funeral was so meaningful, in a lovely chapel, Tracy done the service her self for us and even though it was the worst day of my life it also was such a beautiful bearial all thanks to Tracy and Colin. I would recommend stoodlys to anyone looking for a funeral directors as the service they provide is exeptional. When my time comes to fly away I hope it will be stoodly to send me on my way. Thank you so much Tracy and Colin. To anyone who reads this and has lost someone God bless.xxx

  • 5 Jim Noakes 20th Jun 2019

    My brother’s funeral was not straight forward to arrange as he needed to be moved from some distance away to where the funeral eventually took place. This required two funeral directors being involved and further difficulties in arranging the registration of the death. All this while for a lot of the time I was away from home. Stoodleys oversaw all of the above and had a can do attitude where everything moved ahead smoothly and all problems that arose were dealt with professionally and totally successfully. Throughout they were very supportive and responsive to requests from family members. I could not praise them enough for their sheer professionalism and giving both practical and emotional support for which I am extremely grateful. The funeral itself passed off without a hitch and everyone who attended remarked how personal it all felt.  They also dealt with my mother’s funeral which was much more straight forward but again it was a lovely service and respected her memory. I have absolutely no reservations whatsoever in recommending these funeral directors.

  • 5 Selma Coskunsel 18th Jun 2019
