Can't thank Ben and Kate enough for the care they provided. Nothing was too much trouble. They provided everything we wanted in a professional and caring manner. Made what is a difficult time a great deal easier. Many thanks

Linda Adlington 10th Jul 2022

When my dad recently passed away I called Simpson and Wilde to undertake his funeral. From the moment I spoke to Ben, he gave both myself and my family all the help and support we needed during this difficult and sad time. Ben went above and beyond everything he did for our family, no matter how many phone calls I made to them, however trivial, Ben always dealt with them and insisted it wasn't a problem. The care and compassion the staff at Simpson and Wilde showed my dad was more than I ever hoped for, thank you for taking such wonderful care of him. Ben is a dedicated professional and I'm truly grateful that he gave my dad the send off he so deserved. Thank you once again Ben for everything

    Ben and all of his staff are outstanding. The service Ben offered from the very 1st phone call was so professional, understanding and caring, nothing was too much trouble and we all felt my Dad was in safe and loving hands.
    My Dad's funeral was unique and perfect, just as my dad had wished, Ben made sure even the smallest personal touches we requested were carried out.
    Thank you Ben, you helped to follow Dad's wishes just as much as we did on his final journey, we as a family will never forget you ❤ xx
