  • 5 Mark Woolley 24th Apr 2019

    Just two thoughts that might help improve future service. The Facebook page offered through Funeralzone was a little problematic and as a result few people used it. Some family members thought that chapel viewing hours were a little restrictive for those wanting to make a visit after work.

    Thomason's funeral service took care of my wife's funeral. From the offset when they came to the house after my wife had passed away, they were so courteous and respectful, in such a distressing situation. They handled everything so well. They kept us informed every step of the way. At the chapel of rest all we had to do is give a few hours notice, and we could see our loved one. They came to the house and sat with us and arranged everything down to the minute details. The flowers, the church, the crematorium, and the Weetwood Hall for refreshments, was all taken care of. There was no hard sell, we never felt under pressure, all the prices were upfront, and no surprises, in fact they guided towards the more reasonable priced coffin, which we agreed to purchase. All throughout they emailed us regularly with updates, and with things they required from us, or what we had to do. On the day they were all so courteous and respectful, little things like the driver, asking us not to exit any doors, and that he would open them physically for us all. To be honest my family and i can't thank Thomason's enough, for the professionalism and support they showed my family and I from the beginning to the end.

    At such a difficult time for any family, it was so lovely for all the people at Thomasons to listen with interest to our wishes. Not only did they listen, they did exactly what we wanted and even more. Can not thank you enough.

  • 5 Nichole Mitchell 24th Mar 2019

    We choose Thomasons as we thought the service would more personal from a family run establishment. We were not disappointed they were professional and courteous throughout. They made a very sad and stressful time much easier for us to deal with as a family. I would not hesitate to recommend them. Thank you for helping us and guiding us through the whole process from start to finish.

    Alex Thomason replied

    The team from Thomasons Funeral Service, from first contact to completion of necessary activities, were efficient, patient and sensitive. Communication about events was timely and carried out with consideration. I would like to thank them for their management of one of the most devastating time of our lives.

  • 5 Shaun Dolan 6th Jun 2018

    From the moment we walked through the door and met Thea the funeral director ,we all felt very at ease and comfortable. Thea is probably one of the nicest people you could wish to meet and very helpful and considerate . We had previously that day visited another funeral director in Leeds but we just didn't get that feeling of warmth and didn't seem to want to give us what we wanted. We got totally the opposite at Thomosons they couldn't do enough to help us ,they kept in contact , helped us with problems we had with the church and made a sad day go very smoothly . What also impressed me was when I called in to see the funeral directors ,2 weeks after the funeral just to say thank you , Alex who works there remembered my name as I walked in. Just little things that make a big difference I would highly recommend Thomosons to anyone. Thank you Thea and Alex and all the staff at Thomosons  Shaun Dolan

    Alex Thomason replied

    Thomasons Funeral Services - Professional, compassionate and personal. I wanted to express how much we appreciated the support of the team at Thomasons throughout such an emotional time. I know Mum appreciated the personal touch. The confidence Thea gave her that Dad would be cared for throughout with compassion, dignity and respect was invaluable and a great source of comfort. They also took excellent care of our family throughout, guided us through the many stages of planning and even provided emotional support when things got too much. Nothing can take away the pain of such an emotional day but their professional, yet compassionate approach ensured the whole event ran smoothly from the pickup, the journeys to church, the crematorium and finally the funeral tea. Everything flowed perfectly without us feeling rushed and we appreciated the time allowed to say our individual goodbyes. I would like to thank them personally for all their support, care and compassion throughout. Highly recommended. Lorraine T

    Alex Thomason replied
