We would like to say an absolute massive thank you for all the staff involved at Hillier's. We are so glad we picked Hillier's as not having any dealings with this funeral directors before. We felt that so much care and attention was taken from start to finish which somehow made our very sad time a little easier. The whole service was so nice and everything ran so smoothly. Again we cannot thank you enough for the service you gave us for our mum.

Very patient and caring made sure I was comfortable and took time to help me plan the funeral. Even went on the computer and found where my mum's ashes were buried so my step father's ashes can be put beside my mum. Lovely caring staff and company would recommend them.

Words are not enough to show our appreciation for the exceptional support and guidance given by Hillier Funeral Service through-out this very difficult time. Without exception, the staff have shown us patience, warmth and direction when needed. Consistently immaculate in their dress with cars presented beautifully, we were proud to have them alongside us every step of the way. The support given to us has been outstanding and I do not hesitate in recommending this company.
