Robson & Stephens were absolutely wonderful from the very first phone call, right up to the funeral service itself. Mark had the utmost compassion and sympathy for us all as a family, when dealing with the sad passing of my Dad and the grief that came with it. With my sister in New Zealand and unable to attend the service in person, Mark ensured she was part of the funeral arrangements from the very beginning. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he always put us at ease with his charming personality, which in very difficult circumstances can be a real comfort. I would not hesitate in recommending Mark and his team at Robson & Stephens, they were first class and very professional.

We found Mark very supportive throughout this difficult period, your thinking process is muddled by grief and Mark helps to lead you in the right direction, I was pleasantly surprised with the reasonable cost of the whole funeral, I have no reservation recommending this funeral directors to anyone who desires a personal and professional service.

Mark and his team at Robson & Stephens (Minehead) were absolutely wonderful in providing the arrangements for my late mother's funeral. Mark was sensitive but at the same time helpful and efficient; he took care of literally everything (right down to the in-house catering for the wake/reception after the funeral service) from the moment I first spoke to him on the phone. I have no hesitation in recommending Mark and his team at Robson & Stephens.

    Mark was amazing through the whole process from the day of nans passing up until the funeral. He’s been there for the family, looked after nan so well and made us all feel assured and confident that her body was safe and looked after. He took all the families considerations into account when planning the funeral and made it a very special day to celebrate nans life and for all the family.  Thank you.

    I have nothing but praise for all the team at Robson & Stephens. The service we received and the care and understanding throughout the whole process was brilliant. We were always treated as a valued client and everything was communicated clearly by Mark. We always felt involved and that it was as much for us the family as it was for my beloved wife, Bet. Would I recommend Robson & Stephens, yes wholeheartedly. Thanks Mark and all the team

  • 5 Sue Allen 21st Jun 2021

    Mark could not have done any more for us as a family or our deceased relative. When we asked for the impossible he said yes and when a step further and offered more. Kind, considerate, thoughtful and professional. I could not recommend them enough. No-one else could even compare.

    The Celebration of Life Service went ahead exactly as planned: use of meticulous detail and sincere compassion was portrayed by all staff throughout the planning and organisation stages. A week past the end of the service, they continue on to support us even now. We are extremely grateful for your exceeding effort in providing the wonderful service our beloved father & husband deserved. Thank you.

  • 5 Laura Ferguson 4th Jun 2019

    Having lost our mother suddenly, we were overwhelmed at creating a service that would truly reflect our love and tribute her in such a personal way. Robson and Stephens made this possible. They are an incredible team, providing the most impeccable customer service and could not recommend them highly enough. The local community are lucky to have such a service available to them. The personal attention, guidance and support they provided, carried us through such a tough time. Everything they pulled together for us was perfect. They went above and beyond to ensure the service ran smoothly. A very professional and personal service. Thank you Robson and Stephens.

  • 5 Corrin Garland 18th May 2019

    I sadly lost my brother recently which is the hardest thing I have ever been through Mr Robson made it a easy and flawless took all the stress away. The funeral went seamless even though there was lots of little moving parts as a veterans funeral with piper band and the last stand. I am pleased that my brother had the best send off ever. Thank you to Robson&Stephen's. I would highly recommend them.
