I have used Pearce Funeral services three times now and I cannot speak highly enough of them. The attention to detail and very understanding and helpfulness in a sad and stressful time has always been exceptional.

Bridgette Smith 13th May 2024

I cannot thankyou enough. It was an emotional time and John and the team at Pearce's made everything so much more easy . Nothing was too much trouble. They made the whole family feel special. From the minute we called them to collect my husband to after the service. Thankyou all so very much from the bottom of my heart. I thoroughly recommend this very professional company. Other members of family have had Pearce funeral services for their funeral and I will certainly recommend and use them again in the future. I was also so touched by one of the members of Pearce's as he collected my husband . Whilst we were at crematorium he realized it was us and asked his colleague if he could swop with him as he wanted to carry my husband into the crematorium as he knew him. Thankyou to you too. That's was above and beyond so thankyou to you too. Well done to you all xx Thankyou all

John Pearce and his team committed to managing the burial of my late husband. From the start I found John particularly supportive and respectful, willing to carry every detail for honouring my husband and serving my family. Above that he was compassionate and understanding to embrace our physical, emotional and spiritual needs. He spoke kindly on how to help our grandchildren which enhanced their understand of the passing of their loved grandpapa into a better place. They could look with hope during the burial service and joined in with renewed intensity. That was a joy to me as their grandmother.  The other outstanding feature of this particular undertaker is his attention to detail. He gently prompted me of all the possibilities that I might need to consider bringing the final event into a seamlessly beautiful burial of my loved one. From preparing the coffin to visit in the chapel of rest, to the lovely flowers on the coffin, to the petals scattered on the grave, through gathering a really professional team of coffin bearers who brought a hidden presence of support and respect throughout. Punctual and caring with a kind demeanour, John truly undertook for us. My family and I are most thankful and can recommend this very personal and professional company.

  • 5 Allyson Jordan 6th May 2024

    From the very first phone call to Pearce Funeral Services we received outstanding care and compassion. They helped us at every stage. John Pearce was recommended to us and I would happily recommend him and his team to anyone.
    Helped us through a very difficult time.

  • 5 Louise Hedges 3rd May 2024

    I would highly recommend Pearce Funeral Services. From the beginning to the service they were by our side and gave my Dad the fitting send off he deserved.

  • 5 Richard Bowman 23rd Apr 2024

    Absolutely amazing.. so supportive and compassionate.. Thankyou for looking after us through  our sad times losing both parents in the space of a month. 
    Taking care of everything was such a massive help.. Highly recommended.. 

  • 5 Liz Warrick 8th Apr 2024

    I can honestly not think of the words to rate Pearce Funeral Services highly enough. From the very first contact they have been kind, caring, patient and supportive in the face of our grief.
    I felt my son was cared for and respected in a way that eased our distress.
    All aspects of the process were clearly explained and nothing was too much trouble and no question was left unanswered.
    I wouldn’t wish my situation on anyone but should you sadly lose a loved one then I wouldn’t hesitate recommending John Pearce and his team because you will feel the burden of your sad time lifted from your shoulders.

  • 5 Paul Plowman 7th Apr 2024

    A very personal touch from Caz, going that extra mile to make the days prior to the funeral as bearable as is possible under the circumstances.

  • 5 Patricia Williams 7th Apr 2024

    We received excellent service and we would highly recommend Pearce Funeral services. In particular we would commend the consideration and support we received from John Pearce.

  • 5 David Jarvis 30th Mar 2024

    Could not fault my dad’s funeral they was very professional and couldn’t be helpful enough I would throughly recommend 

  • 5 Maureen Tayler 28th Mar 2024

    This was the third family service that Pearce Funeral Services have done for us in the past two years. Margaret's was just how she/us would have wished. Compassion and dignity figure very highly in the way the team deal with our loved ones. Guidance where asked for or needed but very much family led with some smiles along the way. Many thanks
    and would definitely recommend.

  • 5 Mark Whittington 27th Mar 2024

    Thanks to David and rest of the team who were superbly supportive and provided excellent service for our fathers funeral, having done our mothers funeral six years beforehand. Dave was there to provide excellent advice and supportive in all aspects and stages of the funeral process from the initial meeting we had to discuss funeral plans right through to the funeral day itself. The whole funeral was done excellently on the day!

  • 5 Stephanie Smith 26th Mar 2024

    Pearce's, Caz and John in particular were incredible from start to finish. Professional, discrete, supportive, completely on top of everything in fact, liaising directly with the church, florists and crematorium. This was a great comfort to us at such a difficult time. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
    Thank you James and Stephanie Smith 

  • 5 Graham Mansell 18th Mar 2024

    I highly recommend Pearce Funeral Services who have conducted the funerals for two members of my family within the past year (summer and winter 2023). Pearce Funeral Services are professional, polite, kind and compassionate. I have nothing but praise for Caz, the funeral director, and John Pearce himself, both of whom were flawless in the service provided for what was a difficult and emotional time, especially so given the difficult circumstances of my sisters passing. Nothing was too much trouble and they worked tirelessly to provide the best possible service. I hope I have no need to plan a funeral in the near future, but if I do, I wouldn't hesitate to use Pearce Funeral Services and I can't recommend them highly enough to anyone who needs to plan a funeral. Thank you to Caz and everyone at Pearce Funeral Services for everything you have done for my family.

  • 5 Paul Derriman 18th Mar 2024

    Pearce Funeral services have been excellent throughout the planning and service of my mums funeral. They have been professional and helpful and Caz in particular couldn’t have done any more to help us at such a difficult time. She is a credit to her company. 

  • 5 Christine Reeves 16th Mar 2024

    We  highly recommend Pearce Funeral Services for the professional and personal touches that they provide and guidance when you need it most, in this day and age it is hard to find such care and attention to detail from such a lovely team, thank you so much.

  • 5 David Day 15th Mar 2024

    Caring and professional service from beginning to end.

  • 5 Nick Curtis 9th Mar 2024

    Just the most supportive and friendly service.  Everything is taken at the pace you need it and the team are all amazing.  I cannot recommend Pearces highly enough.

  • 5 Gillian Mitchell 9th Mar 2024

    On a sad day the attention to detail was amazing. Looked after so well. Definitely recommend. 

  • 5 Gerald Kelly 24th Feb 2024

    Fantastic service from this local family firm. Deeply experienced, they were full of advice for our family all the way through - this was our first experience of organising a funeral for a close family member, so all of that advice was invaluable. Would recommend without hesitation.

  • 5 Angelique Holgate 24th Feb 2024

    Pearce Funeral Services provided an exceptional service from the first phone call with Caz through to the committal of our dear son (brother/uncle). As a family we had not been through this process ourselves so close to home but Pearce Funeral Services guided us through the process with compassion and understanding and nothing was too much trouble.

    During this sad time Pearce Funeral Services went at our pace which meant we were able to deal with our grief without feeling under any pressure to get things done. They always kept us informed along the journey so we knew what was happening and what to expect next which was a great relief for us.

    We as a family are so grateful to Pearce Funeral Services for their outstanding and exceptional service throughout which was second to none. We would like to say a very big 'Thank you' although these words don't seem enough to express our gratitude to you all at Pearce Funeral Services.

  • 5 Dermot Fuller 23rd Feb 2024

    Pearce Funeral Services dealt with all issues of the funeral arrangements and funeral itself in a professional and compassionate manner. Their contact throughout was excellent and much appreciated.

  • 5 Hannah-Louise Fusco 22nd Feb 2024

    Pearce look after everything from the beginning to the end. When we lost my uncle, it was so sudden we were all in shock and hadn't planned a funeral before. John came over and he was so kind and friendly. He let us cry, laugh, shout, reminisce and ask as many questions as we needed. He confirmed that they would do anything we needed and that everything didn't have to be done straight away and we had time to process and think. What I particularly liked was the fact he spoke to the youngest member of the family directly and explained things to her slowly and throughly and said that everything could be her pace. We had gentle reminders for deadlines through email and phone and to check in on us. Caz was absolutely fantastic, kind, friendly, supportive, gentle and she cared. We as a family were never rushed for anything at all throughout. On the day of the funeral Caz stood in a carpark holding a speaker with my uncles favourite song (this was a way she found to complete our wishes) with a possession of cars behind, and her empathy was outstanding, it was like she had known him. Pearce knew the grief we were going through, and it was almost like they joined our family for the process and couldn't do enough for us. They carried out every single wish we had and nothing was too much trouble. I honestly couldn't recommend Pearce enough, the empathy they show is outstanding and I will always be grateful for them for not only looking after my uncle but for looking after my whole family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

  • 5 Tracey Wilkinson 21st Feb 2024
