Hathaway’s are exceptional in every way. The care and compassion they provide cannot be matched. Nothing is too much trouble and the little extras they do are so meaningful. Thank you so much

Michael Cheetham 12th Oct 2023

The service we received was above and beyond. Both Tom, Rachel and all the team were so kind and caring throughout. Going the extra mile with their care and service making sure extra touches were added around our mum's love of gardening. Would definitely recommend.

    What can I say I had a very difficult situation due to my mother in law as me and my husband were separated they handled this with dignity and respect at all times. The staff are lovely and supportive and I went for a coffin with a football image on Tom found one that was perfect. I'm now in the process of sorting somthing out for me and when it's time to say goodbye to my parents they will be my o my choice. Even the funeral home is set out nice. I can not thank them enough for how I was helped from walking in the door and bursting into tears to the funeral day once again thank you from the bottom of my heart you made a bad arkward situation turn into an amazing lovy day.

    Hathaway Funeral Directors provided me and my family with a professional service recently. Nothing was too much trouble and Tom the funeral director was always easy to contact and has a sincere and friendly manner.
