You never want to deal with a funeral, and where do you start when you have to?   All we can say is that Paul and the team took very good care of us, sensitively supporting and making sure we celebrated Nans life in the way she would have wanted, leading the way when when were unsure, making things happen and personalising them when we asked - the entire team, and the entire process reflects a most personal, professional and caring service.  Our thanks and appreciation.

Karen Bird 24th Feb 2023

We cannot thank Paul and Ashley enough for their amazing and compassionate support at this difficult time. They guided us through the process clearly and deliver a fitting tribute to my dad. A first-class service and we would thoroughly recommend them.

Paul Johnson 21st Feb 2023

AP McDonald's displayed a very high level of empathy, support and professionalism throughout, nothing was too much trouble and on behalf of the family I want to offer my sincerest thanks for all their efforts in arranging the perfect funeral for one of Devizes greatest characters.

  • 5 John Barron 13th Feb 2022

    I visited 3 other funeral directors and at none did I receive the the personal attention offeed by A P McDonald. I was shown into a small office, offered tea or coffee and had the whole procedure explained in detail with costs. I was give a copy of what was explained together with a brochure before I left. I was assured they were available at all times to be available and so they proved to be. They did not ask for money up front offered me an invoice for the already agreed cost within seven days of the funeral. I am very pleased with the care and attention I received and cannot recommend them too highly.

  • 5 Kathryn Cooper 8th Feb 2022

    Paul and your team
    Words cannot express how much we want to thank you for taking such good care of us both before and at Philippa’s funeral. You were so caring and compassionate and I don’t believe we would have survived without you. You showed a concern which went above and beyond a normal duty and you shared with us in the celebration of her life. Thank you again
