We as a family can't thank Tracey, Colin and Ellie enough for the serves provided after Dad past away very suddenly. They made what is a awful time bearable and straight forward. They provided what can only be said a very personal service to celebrate his life. Nothing was too much and the follow up service is second to none. There just isn't enough words to say how much we appreciate all they have done for us.

Sandra Hill 2nd May 2019

    We found Stoodley`s to be so caring, personal, professional and helpful at all times. Because my dad was a big cricketer the bearers all wore cricket ties! We valued this family funeral director and can not recommend them highly enough. Gary Simmons

  • 5 Sue Grant 8th Apr 2019

    We chose AE Stoodleys because they were a small, local, family business. From our first dealings with them following the death of my husband, we found them to be sympathetic, courteous and incredibly professional. The service we received was second to none; friendly, warm and empathic in every way. They did their upmost to help us navigate a very difficult time and even managed to make us laugh on occasion. We will be ever grateful to them for helping us to give John the send off he wanted and for the support they gave our family. 

  • 5 Ray and Wendy Astley 28th Mar 2019

    A thoroughly professional and family friendly service. When families are going through such a sad time, it was reassuring to know that Colin and his colleagues were only a phone call away. I could not recommend them highly enough. 

  • 5 Sheila Frost 26th Mar 2019

  • 5 Paul Gaines 21st Mar 2019

    Tracey and the team at Stoodley provided a fantastic service from start to end. From those early difficult days, coping with our loss and helping plan a very personal funeral / thanksgiving service. Through all the arrangements we needed to make, always sensitive to our requirements, guiding us through any decisions or choices, and making many good suggestions along the way. To the service itself, where every member of staff helped make the day a perfect send-off for my late wife. Very friendly and professional throughout. Thoroughly recommended.

  • 5 John Milner 15th Mar 2019

    Stoodley and Sons handled my Father’s funeral several years ago superbly well, so it was with no hesitation that we asked them to  carry out my Mother’s funeral arrangements as well. Once again their service was impeccable. They were sensitive to the needs of the whole family and were able to implement any changes to our original plans without any stress or fuss so that the service was exactly as we wanted. The Funeral Director Colin Roberts instinctively knew the correct balance of formality and warmth and had addressed every detail so that everything went perfectly. I cannot fault their service and I am very glad we used them and would definitely use them again.

  • 5 Shani Honeybun 8th Mar 2019

    Very professional, everything went according to plan.  Tracey led from the front and all went well, which is what you want when you are grieving.

  • 5 Thomas Dewsbury 8th Mar 2019

    A very professional funeral service and lovely people to chat too .. Couldn’t ask for better 

  • 5 Roz Reeves 20th Feb 2019

    Execellent service by Colin and the team. Thank you very much 

  • 5 Rod Cherry 17th Feb 2019

    Mums funeral was exactly how my brother and I wanted it. Colin Stoodley and family were instrumental in putting the whole service together with compassion and professionalism. He arranged Atha Murphy, our Celebrant who over a cup of coffee managed to capture the essence of mums life. Between them they made sure everything ran beautifully to plan. I would also mention the flowers were stunning.

  • 5 Julian Hill 8th Feb 2019

    I have nothing but praise for Stoodley's excellent service, which helped the family in no small way to cope with this difficult time. Professional, considerate, and helpful are words that spring to mind, and the burial service at the local church was arranged with the vicar very well and was a lovely send off for my father.

  • 5 Hazel Cornelius 7th Feb 2019

    At such a sad time AE Stoodley and Son were there for me and my family with exemplary service  from start to finish, and nothing was too much trouble for them to make sure everything ran smoothly our special thanks goes to Colin.

  • 5 Ray and Shelagh Larcombe 6th Feb 2019

    We cannot thank stoodleys and there team enough for all there help and kindness. On the day of my aunts funeral we had thick snow & ice & travel was impossible for us & many others. We had spoken the day before about the bad weather and we were concerned stoodleys said not to worry we will sort something out & true to there word they did . A member of stoodleys staff Colin phoned at 8am that morning to say he would try to rearrange things and hold the service at the same place as the wake, within 30 minutes he rang back to say everything had been rearranged for the George Reynolds centre where the wake was being held they even brought the chosen music with them     We cannot thank them enough for there outstanding service         Ray & Shelagh 

  • 5 Keith Cornish 30th Jan 2019

    If we could have been in the position to give them a higher star rating we would have done so, they were excellent with everything. Could not ask for better.

  • 5 Jonathan Morris 30th Jan 2019

    Thanks for all your help, which you offered with kindness, sensitivity and efficiency. Our family were very pleased with the way things went and no doubt in large part to the way in which you helped us. many thanks Jonathan

  • 5 Philippa Mandeville 29th Jan 2019

    One would hope for a professional service and this is indeed what we got. But almost more important was the kindness and empathy during for what everyone arranging a funeral hopes for. This we received, and that with seamless organization made the whole distressing business bearable.

  • 5 Terry Tozer 23rd Jan 2019

    I asked Stoodleys to carry out my mums funeral in October and I must say that Tracey, Colin and the rest of the Stoodley team carried out her funeral in the most professional and compassionate way. Their office, hearse and outfits were all immaculate. They were all very friendly and helpful throughout the whole affair. They made the difficult process for me and my family easy by organising all the food, flowers and cards etc. Truely a 5* service from start to finish. Thank you Stoodleys.

  • 5 Karen Webber 19th Jan 2019

    Courteous and efficient at all times, an excellent service offered to us.

  • 5 Andrew Stockton 18th Jan 2019

    You were impeccable with dad earlier in the year as you were with mum . Could not ask for a better service. Discreet, guiding gently where needed . Thank you again.

  • 5 Judith Thompson 18th Jan 2019

    Colin, Tracey and staff were lovely. Didn’t complain when we kept changing things and were very patient. Thank you to you all

  • 5 Jayne Rawling 18th Jan 2019

    Extremely professional, personal and helpful. Everything went very smoothly and I felt an enormous weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I trusted them completely.

  • 5 Nicola McIntyre 18th Jan 2019

    Everyone at Stoodleys are so supportive and have ensured my father had the funeral we wanted. They go above and beyond.
