  • 5 Trevor Fahy 17th Jan 2022

    As a family we would like to thank Belinda and all of the team at Pearce for all of their support during the hardest time of our lives. From the minute I walked into the Groundwell Rd branch, Belinda was so kind and caring and helped me navigate the whole process of arranging my stepdaughter’s funeral, I literally could not have got through these last few weeks without her. If you choose to use Pearce, just know you’ll be getting a personal service where nothing is too much trouble. Thank you again to all at Pearce.

  • 5 Claire Thomas 20th Apr 2021

    I wish to personally thank Pearce Funeral Directors, their team and caring staff who provided the most exceptional service for my auntie with the utmost quality and care, supporting me tremendously throughout. They truly are a wonderful organisation and independent establishment, who provided me with the highest level of support in the most compassionate way possible. Everything they coordinated was taken care of beautifully and all our requirements met in the most kindest way possible. I can honestly share that they were the very best organisation I could have possibly have asked for in the hardest of circumstances. The coordination of each and every single detail from the start to finish was managed perfectly in the smoothest way imaginable. Even with their calmest handling of a extremely delicate situation, they were so unbelievably kind and thoughtful. I send my special heartfelt thanks and utter gratitude to you all for everything that you did for me and my family to make our deeply sad time one that was uplifting, with complete professionalism. You over and above touched my heart. I genuinely can not thank you enough. You have been incredible. My vey best and sincerest regards, Claire

    Thankyou so very much for enabling us to give our dad such a lovely send off. You made sure everything was perfect for us and we couldn’t have been more happy with how it went.  I know my dad would have loved it.   Right from the start you were so caring and respectful, especially with the really sensitive issues around covid.  This made the saddest time of our lives more bearable and we are extremely grateful. Thankyou once again from all of us.

  • 5 Claire Munday 4th Dec 2020

    PEARCE'S Funeral directors what can I say..... A...MAZ....ING simply amazing... they are a company that sits down with you they Listen Respects Understands Have so much Compassion warm friendly Sincere the list can go on they tick every box. I made an appointment with Bea what an amazing warm and loving lady. I chose a funeral for my beautiful mum. I wanted basic and I wanted natural. I asked that mum not be dressed with makeup as she never ever wore it. I wanted my mum carried by my sons into the church instead of the pallbearers as I knew she felt safe when she was with them. She played such an important role in their lives. There was so much pain on her face in the last ten days of her life, so I did not know when I went to visit my mum in the chapel how I would be able to remove that image from my mind... When I looked at her I saw my mum sleeping just simply sleeping no pain, no dementia just a rested sleep with a content look on her face. she had a slight grin with her eyes gently shut. How just how they managed to get her to look at so much peace I am in awe. We laid her to rest yesterday and it was by far the hardest day of my life. Pearces stepped in and supported me and my family. My four sons carried their beloved nan into the church and out of the church. Pearce's pallbearers talked them through what they needed to do and were by their side every step of the way. they were both reassuring and supportive the entire time. what impresses me the most is when they took mum and the funeral was arranged they NEVER asked for any monies upfront. They put your loved one and the funeral first, there is no financial pressure to settle the bill immediately or give any money until your invoice comes through. They are so family-focused. I cannot fault them or their service.. I am hurting so bad right now and I know time will help to heal but right now I am broken. But I just had to make my experience with this amazing Funeral directors known.
