  • 2 Corrine Verrycken 5th Jan 2022

    After a detailed phone call and details submitted by email they still didn’t get back to me and blamed IT issues which strangely disappeared immediately after my 3d phone call… still the paperwork they submitted contained spelling mistakes. I received a receipt via post to confirm my payment. I now received a second receipt via post in a completely open unsealed envelope. Total lack of care. Still no ashes back…
