Mr R Ruth 15th Jun 2021

We were guided through a difficult process with time to prepare and sensitivity. Nothing was too much trouble and further support was provided above and beyond what was expected. Huge thanks.

Choosing Susan Whymark to take care of my husband's funeral arrangements was the best thing I could have done.

    Susan Whymark funeral services organised and delivered all aspects of my mother’s death and funeral in a professional, efficient and caring way.  I cannot fault the service she and her team provided and would recommend her to anyone. Her guidance and care were exemplary.

  • 5 Mrs M Lewis 15th Apr 2021

  • 5 Mrs S Brown 16th Mar 2021

    Susan Whymark Funeral Services Ltd. were most helpful in assisting my sons and myself with my husband's funeral arrangements earlier this year. They gave us advice on how to proceed, as a consequence of his death. We had been unaware of the actions that needed to be taken. They helped us to make decisions relating to his funeral and all that that entailed. They showed patience and understanding throughout. Finally, we were most grateful for the dignified way my husband's Memorial Service was conducted.

  • 5 Mr L Hume 12th Mar 2021

    I really can't speak highly enough of the service provided by Susan Whymark following the passing of my father. It was everything I needed it to be at such a difficult time, reassuring, caring, calm and also simple. Joanne was lovely and had such a natural way of putting me at ease. On the day Mandy led the proceedings with great care and dignity but also with a nice light touch which really helped. Summing up, my experience is one of great professionalism and respect coupled with warmth and compassion. Wonderful company.

Good communications throughout the process and afterwards.  Arrived on time on the day of funeral and all went to plan. Duties all carried out with respect and care. Susan Whymark Funeral Services Ltd lifted a lot of the burden of preparing for a funeral at such a difficult time for the family.  We were grateful for their support and help. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services. Thank you.

  • 5 Mrs A Lacovazzo 18th Sep 2020

    I was fortunate enough to be able to use Susan Whymark Funeral Services Ltd for both my parents funerals.  In 2007 my father passed away after a long illness. Both my mother and I were struck at how sensitively, kindly and efficiently everything was dealt with. We were also struck at how reasonable the costs were in comparison to the experiences of other people we spoke to. Sadly, more recently my mother passed away. I talked through the kind of service I wanted with Susan and was given a lot of support at such a difficult time. Social distancing had to be respected and those attending had to wear masks but despite this it was a lovely service and again I am so grateful for the kindness and sensitivity I was shown at such a difficult time. Everything was exactly as my mother would have wanted it.

  • 5 Mrs E Hayes 17th Sep 2020

    The whole process was made simple by the excellent team.  Having never been put at the forefront of arranging a funeral, initially I was daunted by the prospect, but Mandy helped us in the planning, visiting us at home, making the arrangements for the crematorium and service.  Every time I contacted her, I received a quick reply and always received a personal and friendly service.  We never felt rushed or pressured to do anything.  Mandy is easy to talk to and sympathetic and understanding to our needs. I would Highly recommend Susan Whymark Funeral Services, especially in these strange times of social distancing.

  • 5 Mr C Walker 17th Sep 2020

    I could not fault them for their support, kindness and care. Thank you for looking after my dear mother so well.
