Juliet Brown 8th Oct 2021

My husband died suddenly and unexpectedly in September. Whilst still in shock, a local minister recommended Andy Bowness from Lyndon M. Leeson to me and I can see why. From the outset, he was knowledgeable, professional, reliable and compassionate. He was on hand at any time of the day and kept us informed every step of the way. His advice was invaluable and we always felt in safe hands, nothing was too much trouble. He organised a small family cremation followed by a wonderful service of thanksgiving celebrating my husband’s life. It was a day shared with family and friends filled with happy memories, tears, laughter and much love. Andy made this very difficult time much more bearable and we cannot thank him enough. We would certainly highly recommend his service to others. Thank you Andy!

Celia Gill 15th Sep 2021

We couldn’t fault the service we received from Lyndon Leeson and Andrew Bowness, the professionalism and compassion they showed the whole family was such a comfort in our sudden loss. Nothing was too much trouble, they were extremely respectful and they kept us fully informed .the whole time of what would be happening next and they were at the end of the phone whenever we needed them. They made a very difficult time a bit easier to bear. A huge thank you to them both.

    Andrew and team were exceptionally professional,kind and caring. We unfortunately had to use there services twice this year and each time we couldnt fault them. They made everything so easy at such a hard time. On the day they were attentive and professional. We couldn't recommend them more.

  • 5 Linda Watson 6th Aug 2021

    Andrew and his colleagues at Lyndon M. Leeson made a difficult time as straightforward as possible for us, liaising with involved parties where possible and prompting me regarding tasks I needed to undertake. They were unfailingly courteous, even when called during the night. Thank you all.

  • 5 Gaynor Townson 26th Jul 2021

    Andrew Bowness at Lyndon M Leeson Funeral Directors was excellent, he was professional, caring and understanding at this sad time. There was personal attention to every detail ensuring that we, as a family did not have to have the added stress, with the organising of any part of the funeral. He came to our home and talked through our options, giving us suggestions where needed to help with our choices taking away the worry of the funeral. The service & funeral were professionally carried out to an excellent standard and we could not have wished for better. Through Andrew and Lyndon M Leeson Funeral Directors we chose Margaret Foxley to act as Celebrant at the service, she again was professional, understanding to our needs and caring to our loss. The service she led was both caring and appropriate to my dad & his life, all who attended commented on how lovely the service had been. I would whole heartedly recommend both Lyndon M Leeson and Margaret Foxley as Celebrant to anyone who is in need of these services

  • 5 Linda Beckett 27th Jun 2021

  • 4 Harry Jackson 6th May 2021

  • 5 Paul Addyman 19th Apr 2021

    When our father died, Lyndon M Leeson was recommended to us. We’re so glad they were. We as a family had not been in the situation of needing a funeral director so didn’t know what we needed to do or what to expect. We contacted Andrew Bowness of Lyndon M Leeson and he came to my home to talk us through everything we needed to know and do. He was extremely professional and at the same time compassionate and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for him, he was contactable by phone to answer any questions we might have and kept us up to date as the arrangements were made. The care and consideration taken made the day go without a hitch, for which we are so grateful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lyndon M Leeson to anyone.

  • 5 Lisa Armstrong 15th Apr 2021

  • 5 Sally Heaton 26th Feb 2021

    These funeral directors could not have done anymore for us. They were extremely compassionate and kept us informed of every process and helped us a lot at a very difficult time. We can not thank them enough for all their help and comfort they gave to us. We would highly recommend them to anyone who unfortunately requires the services of an undertaker. Thank you very much very taking care of our loved one. 

  • 5 Robin Barker 26th Feb 2021

    Great service

  • 5 Carolyn Holt 25th Feb 2021

    I would unreservedly recommend this business to anyone who finds themselves in this position. My sister and I dealt with Andrew Jackson from our first call to him kindly dropping mum's ashes back with us. He personally answered all calls and responded to messages, all very promptly; nothing was ever too much trouble. We used Andrew to organise everything for us, except the flowers, but he also liaised with the florist on our behalf. Andrew showed compassion and care throughout, and was highly efficient. We knew we were in good hands with this business and you will be too. (I should add that we used another independent company to organise my dad's funeral and the experience was entirely different.) Andrew's care and attention made a stressful experience as easy and worry-free as it possibly could be.

  • 5 Jaki Brown 12th Feb 2021

    Well where to start, from the first meeting to myself going today to collect my daughters ashes Andrew and his team have been absolutely fantastic, I can not thank them enough for all their help advise and the way they made this traumatic time for myself so easy and friendly nothing is to much trouble for Andrew, the funeral ran like a dream and was all down to Andrews organization skills, do not change Andrew you where all just fantastic, Highly Highly recommended.

  • 5 David Binns 6th Feb 2021
