Christine Beavers 12th May 2024

When we were at our lowest, and didn't know where to begin, the amazing team at Manor House Funerals were with us. By our side with compassion and understanding, they gave great care to Michael and his family. Special mention must go to Joe, our personal director, and to Maurice at Sea Road Chapel of Rest. Thank you, Christine, Graeme and Jordan x

From the moment that we met with Joe it felt comfortable talking about the arrangements that we had to make, Joe guided us through a very tough time and this made  all the difference to the hard decisions that needed to be made. Throughout the whole process  it was never too much for him, from me changing my mind over my chosen charity , to  choosing pictures.  The day of the service Joe was very professional and calm, and just made things easier for the family.  It’s never easy when you lose a loved one but Joe and Manor House staff made all the difference to me and my family during this sad time.

    Excellent service from beginning to the end from a great bunch of people. They were the most compassionate and helpful to Amanda and the family of Pat that anyone can ask for at a time when we needed help. Nothing was a problem to them I can truly recommend them to anyone thank you very much to Joe and Morris.

    Absolutely fantastic service in these strange times. Mark & Chris could not have been more helpful or understanding. Great help with everything & so professional considering we couldn’t give my dad the send off we wanted. They went out of their way to make it as bearable as possible. Thank you so much.

    Having previously used Manor House Funeral Services in 2007 for my father’s funeral when the service was excellent we decided to use them again for my mother’s funeral however we found the experience very different.   During an already stressful and emotional time we had several issues, telephone calls needed to be made several times as staff weren’t available, systems were being changed so there were issues with making payment, paperwork had names and address spelt incorrectly, particularly my mother’s name, despite being correct on the initial documentation.  Appointments were rescheduled when we had made arrangements for us all to visit my mother together in the chapel of rest, due to staffing issues.  We used funeral zone but the date of my mother’s death and my name were incorrect and required amending, again these were correct on the initial paperwork.  Fortunately the funeral itself went ahead without any issues.  I would find it difficult to recommend Manor House.
