Excellent service from a highly professional , patient and experienced staff. We were impressed with Peter and his team, who put my Dad first throughout the process. Everything was taken care of and every attention to detail considered. I would not hesitate in recommending Gooding Funeral Services to friends and family. Thank you for your personal friendly service.

Couldn't fault them in any way. Andrew went out of his way to meet all our needs and explained every little detail to us. The funeral went without a hitch. Would definitely recommend them, in fact I already have.
