Shirley and Jamie were outstanding. They did everything and more to help make our experience as painless as possible. I will always remember their kindness and professionalism. If I do need the services of a funeral director again. I would not consider anyone but them.

Debbie Brashaw 31st May 2022

We can’t praise Jamie, Shirlee and Kevin and the team enough. It’s the second funeral they have organised for us and both were perfect. They can’t do enough for you to make the funeral just right. They are professional, compassionate, thoughtful and kind at a difficult time and beyond that.

Absolutely fantastic, go above and beyond, couldn’t have helped enough. Thank you

  • 5 Stella Gerrard 25th May 2022

    Jamie has years of experience and this shows in how he treats all his clients by listening to what they need and then being able to present them with all the different alternatives. His advice and care by him and all his staff is just what you need in these difficult times.

  • 5 Lynne Dent 25th May 2022

    I found the service excellent, all done with a great deal of care. Everything was done as promised and with respect. We never felt hurried throughout. I would certainly recommend Jamie and team.

  • 5 Susan Coldwell 25th May 2022

    100% care and flexibility for family to have exactly what they needed to say goodbye and share precious memories of mums life

  • 5 David Lindores 25th May 2022

    As always, James and his colleagues provided a personal, supportive and professional service. This is the third time I have had to use his service and I have been completely satisfied and appreciative each time.

  • 5 Ann Bradley 25th May 2022

    J.F. Knight were absolutely amazing. The were very respectful and went above and beyond to help in any way they could to make sure that our loved one was looked after. The funeral was special and they made the service just as my mom wanted it. I would highly recommend them to everyone .

  • 5 Lindsay Fox 25th May 2022

    One word…..outstanding.
    Never having organised a funeral before, I felt fully supported by an approachable, genuinely sincere and professional team (Shirlee and Kieth) who had everything well in hand to guide and help me (without the formal “stuffiness” and needless expense of other companies), when I asked, to plan the arrangements for my Mums funeral from the outset.  They helped me give Mum the personal and individual tailored funeral Mum deserved and this helped our family feel more at ease when saying our final goodbyes.
    The fact that it is a family business who are small enough to care, flexible to accommodate your wishes, offer positive empathy and have a clear desire to help you achieve a fitting tribute for the family or friend you have lost, is clear to see at every stage.
    Nothing was too much trouble.  On the day of the service, everything was perfect.  They offered options and solutions to dilemmas, we’re available when needed and I would not hesitate to highly recommend them to anyone who asked.

  • 5 David Cotterill 25th May 2022

    We cannot thank Jamie and his wonderful staff enough, for the compassion that they showed, the attention to detail, the guidance through the most difficult of times and the care provided we are most grateful. Alan to us was the most caring, funny and honest person you could ask for and we miss him deeply. His character was most definitely highlighted in the service received. Thank you so much from the Cotterill family.

  • 5 Melanie Lowe 25th May 2022

    I had never planned a funeral before. It was daunting and I was in unknown territory. I was in London and my uncle lived and then died in Sheffield. I was given JK Knights number and from the moment they picked up the phone, I knew I had chosen the right family run funeral directors. They put me at ease, gently guided me through the process with such kindness, respect and thoroughness. They were so considerate to my deceased family member, they cared about him as I did. Every step of the way, even with the distance, I felt like I was being cared for, they kept in communication with me, they paid attention to the finer details and it all resulted in a beautiful send off. Thank you Shirlee and Jamie for being there in this difficult time for me and my family.

  • 5 Richard Walsh 25th May 2022

    Amazingly considerate, thoughtful, helpful and kind from initial phone call to the day of the funeral and their follow up services. Everyone said how well they had done and how professional they were.
    My family will always be grateful to Jamie and his team. I can't praise or thank them enough.
