Ruth and the team were lovely and so supportive at such a difficult time, and helped me to arrange ceremonies that had the perfect mix of modern and traditional elements. Many thanks.

Full circle were very relaxed and informal, whilst remaining professional at all times. I was able to input into my mum's care and arrangements as much as I wanted. The Funeral Facilitator kept in regular contact and checked everything with me at every step of the way. I felt completely supported at a very difficult time.
