Mr H Wilkins 18th Jan 2022

A most professional service. The preliminary interview was sensitive and sympathetic. Their negotiations with other parties involved was efficient and I was kept well informed as things progressed. The funeral service, the burial and transportation of mourners was carried out in a most supportive and professional manner. Top quality and accommodating service from beginning to completion.

Ken Knock 8th Jan 2022

The service provided from initial contact, transfer from the hospital through planning and arranging the funeral to the funeral, was carried out in a very professional manner providing the family with all the help we needed. At each stage all our questions were answered allowing us to focus on having a funeral service to celebrate Ralph's life as we believe he would have wanted.

Could not be more helpful, kind and understanding. Highly recommended!

  • 5 Mrs K Langley 24th Aug 2021

    I felt a really bad day was made perfect. Amanda was truly amazing. Even down to the ties she had for the pallbearers. She went out of her way to get the coffin I really wanted and most of all she went to the extreme to get my girl presentable so that I could say goodbye. Nothing was to much trouble for any of them. Thankyou so much 

  • 5 Mrs J Duke 31st Jul 2021

    I could not have wished for a more professional and caring service from the time we stepped through the door until paying their fees. As a family I know we must have put them under pressure with our requests but again they excelled. We, the famy think they are second to none and stand alone as competent and reliable Funeral Directors. We have used them before, have known them and of them for many years and can say personally as a member and PCC Secretary of our local church that they are held in great esteem. They would be and are wholly recommended. Mrs Janet Duke
