We recently used the company for the death of my Father in Law. From start to finish every aspect of the funeral arrangements was excellent and everything was carried out in such a friendly, understanding and professional manner. I would recommend them 100% as it helped our family during what was a very sad time and it is refreshing to deal with a company who carry out their work to such a high standard.
