I’m a qualified experienced mental health nurse. I work with bereaved people and my grief was and is profound. I’m crying as I write this . We were treated with respect and dignity. We were ( are) still suffering from the trauma of losing our beautiful mum. Full circle’s Andrew Atkins was skilled and kind. His approach helped when we were at our lowest ebb.  Vanessa ( the celebrant) was also lovely.  I’m very relieved that we chose Full Circle. My 83 year old uncle said that the unique funeral that we organised had “ made me a better person “. That’s the best recommendation that I can give.

We cannot thank David and his wonderful team enough as they made a stressful time easier. The compassion and kindness shown was a comfort to us. We did not feel we was planning dad’s funeral but a celebration of dad’s life. David and his team enabled us to give dad the send off we all wanted. Full professionalism was shown at all times.

Full Circle couldn't have been more helpful. They really listened to what we wanted to do and supported us to do it. They had some lovely suggestions and helpful advice and recommendations. We never felt rushed when talking things through and they took care of a lot of the logistical issues so we didn't have to. I'd definitely recommend them.
