You did amazing it was a lovely did my mum proud 

Michael Helme 3rd Apr 2018

John and the team could not have been any more considerate and professional. Prior to the Funeral every single aspect for the day and many related events were most thoroughly covered.  On the day John and the team were absolutely wonderful. They helped us through the day from start to finish.  It is a difficult time when a loved one dies. Pinders took away all the anguish and worry around the arrangements for the Funeral. They were absolutely first class. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you John and your team.

  • 5 Dean Richardson 31st Mar 2018

    From the moment that we met first John we knew that we were in good hands. This was the first time that we had lost someone so close to us and John understood how tough it was to deal with, especially trying to arrange things so quickly after Mum passed away. He was very professional and helped us the whole way through the process from the administration and formalities (that you don't know are coming) through to deciding on the most personal and emotional details at this difficult time. He made it so easy and simple with his knowledge and organisational skills that it took a lot of the stress away so that we could focus on grieving and putting together our own tributes to make it as perfect as possible for Mum and all of us. The funeral was a celebration and everything went perfectly. Thank you John.

  • 5 Michael Johnson 15th Jan 2018

    Just perfect. It had all the required ingredients and more: Professional, Sensitive, Listening, Caring, Consultative, providing Leadership when required. Pinders carried out their huge responsibilities impeccably - enabling Family, Friends and Contacts to concentrate on what was important to them on the day: their last opportunity to say farewell to our father, Frank Johnson. Thank you Pinders, you did everything so well from start to finish. Michael Johnson, son and co-Executor with Steve Johnson.

    We cannot thank John Pinder enough for all his invaluable help during the very sad time of losing our sister Lesley, he is professional at all times and nothing is a bother, it is lovely how a man in his profession has such an approachable warm manner. Lesley was very specific in her funeral plans and John was paramount in making them happen, for this we will be forever thankful. Janice & Steve

  • 5 Kathryn Brown 5th Sep 2017

    From the first time we met John to arrange pre-paid funerals for my my parents he was very professional and caring. Unfortunately we had to call on John's services sooner than we expected when my father passed away suddenly. From the first phone call to John after the death to the after care we received, he was excellent in making what was a very sad and difficult time easier for the family especially mum. Thank you John.

  • 5 Sylvia Mulligan 28th May 2017

    I had no previous experience or knowledge of what I had to do in my situation. I am so pleased that I chose Pinders Funeral Directors as they took all the problems that arose,  worked through the options I had, and sat down with me to help me feel comfortable with my decision.  Within a day I felt as though they were part of my family and this made me feel very assured that my wishes would be upheld. My husband was given the highest respect and was lovingly cared for.  Jaquie was our dedicated member of the team and I felt very comfortable with her dealings with us. John Pinder was always on site, and made himself visible, even coming to my assistance when my vehicle broke down,  this made me feel confident in the fact that they really are a family run business. If you are looking for a caring, professional funeral director who will give your loved one the dignity and respect they deserve, yet never forgetting the loved ones left behind then I can highly recommend W.E. Pinder & Son
