Sherlock's have supported me for both my parents now sadly, but they are a real support in what is a very hard time. They help with all you need to organise and approach everything in a respectful way. Our contact was quick to respond and on the day called to double check all was as expected and their gentlemen in charge of the service gave us, as a family, a real sense of security as they supported us through what needed to be done, but again in a respectful gentle and calm way. Thank you.

We were very well looked after and nothing was too much trouble, which made the process so much easier.

  • 5 Helen Christou 8th Jan 2024

    We cannot fault the service we have received from Sherlock Funeral Service. From the moment we notified them of our late mum's passing to the funeral day/service itself, we have only been shown compassion, empathy and professionalism at what has been a difficult and sad time. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sherlock Funeral Service to family and friends.

  • 5 Garry Batten 7th Jan 2024

    Sherlocks provided our family with the Funeral we wanted for our Mother.  The staff were kind as well as professional,  helping with all the contacts and recommendations. The whole funeral went so smoothly with their support. 

  • 5 Timothy Nelson 20th Dec 2023

    Sherlock made the whole process very easy. Staff were very supportive and personable with the family. Their excellent liaison with the care home, crematorium, church, vicar and printers meant that everything went off very smoothly from start to finish. Thank you so much.

  • 5 Lesley Chaddock 18th Dec 2023

    Very supportive and attentive at a difficult time.

  • 5 David Thomas 16th Dec 2023

    Maria extended a welcome and hospitality to us on every visit to the premises, dealt with all requests and arrangements in a professional manner and was always considerate to our needs. We found the private chapel at  South Street perfect for our needs, and there were no problems about parking, sourcing music, meeting guests etc.

    Such kindness and  caring shown.  Thankyou so much.  June

    I cannot thank Maria at Sherlock enough. She helped me through a really distressing time, and the funeral itself was exactly as I hoped.

  • 5 Helen Meeking 27th Nov 2023

    The whole process from planning to the actual day was made easier with the help of the dedicated staff. The chapel of rest provided the perfect venue for a respectful service and our celebrant carried out Mum’s wishes perfectly.

  • 5 Mark Jones 24th Nov 2023

    Mum has used Sherlocks before. It put our minds at rest how helpful and caring they are. Everything ran so smoothly it made it so much easier for us at a difficult time. Couldn't recommend them enough.

  • 5 Parish Christine 21st Nov 2023

    The service I received from Sherlocks was superb.  They anticipated my needs and we’re always attentive and caring, and I never felt rushed when making a decision.  They helped me to choose the perfect style of coffin and everything was organised by them, taking all the pressure from me.  The funeral itself went without a hitch, the head pallbearer shook my hand and I was left with the feeling that I was treated almost like family, not just the next number on the list.  Thank you so much Sherlocks, nobody does it better. x

  • 5 Janet webb 18th Nov 2023
