I would just like to say a very big thank you to everyone at Farmers in the planning and arranging of Dads funeral, everything went smoothly from our first meeting to the funeral itself, in what was a very upsetting time for the family. Chris was fantastic and went that extra mile ensuring every detail was carried out as Dad had wanted.

    THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR VAST EXPERIANCE AT THIS SAD TIME FOR US WITHOUT YOUR AMAZING RESPECTFULL PERSONAL. WELL DONE TOO YOU ALL.

  • 5 Richard Walton 6th Nov 2021

    It is obviously a difficult time whenever you engage Farmers, but from the outset Chris was supportive and open to everything the family wanted to do. She communicated well, helped wherever necessary and no request was too much trouble. On the day of the Cremation and Burial, everyone was professional and knew their job and they helped the family through it all, directing and supporting where necessary but not being overpowering .. there but in the background ensuring everything was .. well perfect. I cannot recommend Farmers highly enough.
