Service was excellent at a time of great distress. We have used Hillier for two other close family members over the last twenty odd years and did not hesitate in using them again for our recent loss. We thank them for their grace and kindness and attention to detail. Also for making the process so much less daunting at a painfull and stressful time in our lives.

John and the team are the type of people that can never do enough for you. And not only do they do so much but they are deeply kind and caring in it. I can't recommend them highly enough. They were such a gift to our family at the darkest time of our lives. Thank you so much guys

We contacted a number of funeral directors to gain an understanding of requirements and pricing, some were fairly rude; quite business oriented. John was happy to take the time to explain everything showing a great sense of understanding and empathy. We chose John and his colleagues as they were extremely professional, informative and caring in their handling of our affairs at such a sensetive time. John was a pleasure to work with and couldn't do enough for us in every aspect of his work. We would recommend him should it be unfortunate enough that the situation occur.
