Everthing about Stoodleys is excellent from the first phone call to the very last part of the funeral. Very nice people.

Hilary Key 29th Jul 2018

Very professional indeed. We felt Colin organised everything so well and often went beyond what he was expected to do with thoughtfulness. I would recommend A Stoodley unreservedly.

    I was very impressed by the friendly, but professional, way that my mother's recent funeral was handled by A.E. Stoodley & Son. Colin was extremely approachable and helpful, and a difficult time was made much easier for me and my family. Thank you.

  • 5 Angus McPhee 17th May 2018

    Following initial contact with Stoodleys, their representative attended my home very punctually. He discussed the possibility of arranging my wife's funeral with compassion and care. During discussions with my family he was very informative and paid great attention to the wishes of us all. His advice was well thought out and answered all of the questions that we had. I have the greatest praise for Stoodleys and their representative, Mr Colin Roberts in particular. I am very grateful for the way in which everything was done. Being able to be associated with the construction of the willow coffin was something that I had not anticipated but it helped the family to face up to the service. The suggested celebrant who conducted the service was outstanding. The subsequent funeral service went superbly with friends subsequently telling me that they were immensely impressed by the way in which Stoodleys had organised it all. I have no points at all that I think could be bettered.

  • 5 Debbie McCall 16th May 2018

    We could not have had any better service if stoodleys had tried! From the minute I called Tracey everything was taken care of. Exactly what you need when you are grieving - someone else to organise everything for you just as you want it!! Absolutely first class service and so compassionate and empathetic!! Would recommend stoodleys to anyone needing funeral services!! I can’t thank Tracey Colin and all the team enough!! Thank you isn’t enough!!

  • 5 Christine Pasek 15th May 2018

    We are so pleased with the way mums funeral turned out. Colin and his team did such a good job. The service was very personal and with alot of compassion and respect for all of us.

  • 5 Julie Hardy 24th Apr 2018

    Tracey,Collin and the rest of their team made a difficult time much easier. They were thoughtful, kind and professional. Their suggestion of a celebrant for the service prooved to be excellent and the cremation service went without a hitch. Myself and the family can not thank them enough.

  • 5 Judy Smart 20th Apr 2018

    Absolutely brilliant and they took the stress out of the arrangements. So friendly and approachable.

  • 5 Robert Wills 19th Apr 2018

    At all times the focus was on what was requiested by the family with appropriate time allowed to bring together Dad’s wishes to culminate in the perfect send offf which he would have been proud of. The team went beyond the call of duty, as part of the process took place over the Easter weekend when visiting Dad in the chapel of rest was not restricted. The whole process was very personal and nothing was to much trouble. A service we as a family would have no hesitation in recommending.

  • 5 Ivy Van 11th Apr 2018

    Heartfelt thanks to Colin and Tracey for making the whole occasion as stressless as possible. An absolutely first class service was provided right from the initial phone call. Colin came to the house and dealt with all the arrangements with great professionalism and understanding, offering advice and guidance whilst letting the family take time to consider the options and make the decisions. We were very impressed with the way he talked us through the whole procedure and listened to our ideas and wishes, he really put our minds at ease. Unfortunately Colin was not able to attend the actual funeral, but Tracey took charge and ensured that the day went smoothly. At all times, we were treated with the utmost dignity and respect and we cannot praise this company highly enough. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

  • 5 Jackie Scutt 15th Mar 2018

    Lovely caring professional people my mums funeral was beautiful thank you 

  • 5 Derek Smith 9th Mar 2018

    I have no hesitation in recommending A.E. Stoodley & Son. My father's funeral arrangements were handled with sensitivity, professionalism, genuine care and attention to detail. They guided me every step of the way and gave me useful and helpful advice concerning not just the funeral itself, but also recommended equally helpful contacts for the celebrant, flowers, etc. Then, on the day, they were punctual, sensitive and helpful. Definitely a 5 star service. Thank you! 

  • 5 Carole Christie 8th Mar 2018

    The service we received from A.E.Stoodley & Son was excellent. They looked after us so well that we would recommend them to anyone at such a difficult time. 

  • 5 Jeff Hoyle 5th Mar 2018

    I would strongly recommend Stoodleys. They are a small Independant that handled all the funeral arrangements for my late father in a professional, caring and fault free manner. Being independant gave my mother an I the dedication and feeling that only a small family run business can provide. A special thank you to Tracey for going beyond what I expected.
