Andrew Binns 7th May 2020

Consummate professionals. My Father in Law's funeral was handled with the utmost respect and care regardless of the unprecedented times the world finds itself in at the moment. Our service was held in the chapel at the funeral home. This was a lovely, peaceful place which provided much needed comfort and an opportunity to say goodbye with dignity.

Amanda Finn 6th May 2020

The service received from Andrew Box and the whole team has been supurb. My father died during the coronavirus lockdown on 15th April, making his death even more difficult to deal with but Andrew was professional at all times and made this difficult time more bearable for us. Efficient, caring and nothing too much trouble, Andrew made sure that we were looked after and supported throughout. I would highly recommend Eric Box Funeral Directors. Thank you for looking after us so well.

  • 5 Jonathan Mitchell 28th Jan 2020

    The attention to detail, compassion, professionalism and respect shown by everyone at Eric Box, before, during and after the ceremony were absolutely wonderful. We always felt in control and Edward (who was our chief contact throughout) was adaptable, flexible and - at a time of great personal anguish - approachable. I cannot recommend highly enough - we felt the most important people in the world. Also, great to see that a funeral director has a good sense of humour, which Edward used to make Mum in particular feel very comfortable. Thank you so much for everything you did to give our Dad a brilliant send-off.

  • 5 Tina Lewiss 28th Jan 2020

  • 5 Matthew Mitchell 20th Jan 2020

    Really brilliant service, very understanding and compassionate from the first time we met which makes a massive difference.

  • 5 Julie Rishworth 19th Jan 2020

    Edward Box and his staff did a wonderful job arranging my mums funeral and especially went above and beyond considering we live overseas and there’s a time difference. He was very attentive to our needs and listened carefully so my mums wishes were followed. He made himself available at any time and communicated all the details by phone and email to make things go smoothly. We were so happy that the service went so well and everything happened just as Edward said it would. During a time when it’s sometimes difficult to make decisions and final arrangements he helped us through everything and no detail was missed. 

  • 5 Emily Feigel 10th Jan 2020

    Amazing! We had a quick turnaround and Edward was phenomenal in getting it all completed in time.

  • 5 Rosalind Price 30th Dec 2019

    We have been incredibly pleased with the services that Box has arranged for both my mother and my father. They listened to what we wanted and provided dignified and meaningful funeral services. I highly recommend them.

  • 5 Hazel Makwabarara 24th Sep 2019

    Edward and the family was very accommodating and showed our family so much empathy when we were going through the worst times of our life. They took the time to speak to us and explained everything to make sure it was all clear and planned well. Thank you so much.

  • 5 Melanie Stevens 17th Sep 2019

    Andrew and co were amazing start to finish. Me and my family received such phenomenal support which made a tough process more manageable. I definitely would use them and recommend them to anyone.

  • 5 Misty Bannerman 24th Jul 2019

    Although a review to write abiut the arrangements for a funeral for a your husband is so difficult, however I must continue. To have the kind of reassurance of a professional and caring team woul be the usual. ..my experience was beyond the usual. Without rhe continuous personal and I feel a genuine care and support, I do not feel I would have felt assured in myself, that my husband was given the service that I truly wanted for him. Everyone went above and beyond in assuring and supporting myself and family, right from the very first phone call throughout this difficult time. Special gratitude to Andrew and thank you so much to everyone Thank you

  • 5 Margaret Watson 14th Jul 2019

    The service we received was excellent. Everyone involved were very caring. Nothing too much trouble. It was a sensitive and caring service provided to all our family at a very painful time. We had the funeral service in the beautiful chapel and refreshments also served on the premises in a lovely room, all set out for us. All those attending expressed their satisfaction with how everything went so smoothly. We all look back on that day with warmth and in many ways with feelings of joy and thankfulness that our last farewell to our beloved aunt had been what she would have wanted.Thank you to everyone concerned for helping make this a memorable occasions for all of us.

  • 5 Shaun Parkin 22nd May 2019

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers.
