While calling funeral directors to arrange my brother’s funeral Mark Wait seemed the most sympathetic and genuine over the phone. They were very understanding over the high costs of funerals and helped me get a quote that was low but assured me a wuality service. They also advised me on what paperwork I would need to arrange it, as this was the first time I’d really dealt with someone dying and I didn’t quite know what i was doing.  During the arrangements they were understanding, as my mother was ill during the planning stages. They went above and beyond to accommodate this.  They created a beautiful service for my brother and were professional throughout and have kept contact since the funeral, always making sure that my family and I are well during this distressing time.  It’s an odd thing to recommend but Mark Wait Funeral Sevice made this sad time, less stressful and were a huge help.  Thank you to Kelsey and Mark. You’ve been absolutely lovely.

Mark provided everything the family needed with a extremely sympathetic and friendly nature. He made the whole process effortless and without him it would have been a much harder time for the family. Would recommend whole heartedly.
