I cannot recommend Pearce Funeral Services more highly. They provided the dignity and care my father deserved following his passing. And for us (the family) they showed true care and compassion with a level of professionalism that was second to none. We are so pleased we used their services.

    Losing a family member is always hard. But the moment I phoned Pearce Funeral Services and spoke to Caz everything eased. She has been amazing. From all the little touches like swapping hearts across.. (crocheted ones) to looking after Jacquie. And helping me arrange every little detail the day was just perfect. I would definitely recommend them to anyone! Thank you so much Caz and all your team.

    I cannot express adequately how grateful I was to have John's caring, professional guidance through the difficult time of my mother's death and funeral. I cannot envisage a better service, he went above and beyond for our family and I am so very grateful we chose Pearce funeral directors and recommend them unreservedly.

    My family & I would highly recommend Pearce Funeral Services. John and all of the team were so professional, sympathetic & understanding. Nothing was too much trouble. They were with us all the way, supporting us from our first phone call to the end of the funeral service. I am confident this level of service will continue until we have collected Mum’s ashes. We can’t thank everyone enough. 

  • 5 Anna Henson 12th Apr 2022

    Having dealt with funeral directors in the past, I have never had the pleasure of one who took time to listen, to explain, and to be supportative to me, and my family. John Pearce stands out as very different here is a man and company who care about their customers during a very difficult time of loosing a loved one. From start to finish Pearce Funeral services offer a personal, caring, service and on the day of the funeral their presence and kindness make a huge difference. We would recommend Pearce funerals, individual, caring services , simply the best

  • 5 Lisa Reaney 19th Feb 2022

    My beloved husband passed suddenly and unexpectedly, and I was at a complete loss as to how to handle the details, and not sure I even had the strength to.

    After speaking with a couple of major chains with nearby locations, I was left frustrated and feeling like any service they provided was just a means to an end: their profit. At a time when I was devastated from my loss, the last thing I wanted was to deal with someone who obviously cared more for their bottom line than for my grief or my loved one.

    So I looked further and found Pearce Funeral Services, a local, independent funeral director. I am so grateful to say they were wonderful.

    I am disabled, and John Pearce came out to my home. He was so kind, gentle and empathetic. I felt like he genuinely cared about me, and truly cared about my husband who had passed. Throughout the entire process, he continued to display that same warm empathy. I felt confident that my husband was cared for with the greatest dignity and respect.

  • 5 Jennifer Adamson 19th Feb 2022

    As a family we could not recommend pearce funeral services enough. They were brilliant from start to finish, everything was done with care, empathy and dignity nothing was too much. A special thanks to Caz who looked after us from the start. She has made a very difficult time that bit easier. Dad was looked after with such care and dignity. Pearce funeral services will now be used by all the family in the future. Thank you

  • 5 Nicky Pinnell 1st Feb 2022
