    I didn’t choose Pearce Funeral Services the funeral plan did, however they were wonderful, kind, compassionate and showed great empathy.

  • 5 Yvonne Gardiner 7th Jun 2021

    My family and I were touched by the warmth and the support which we received at a very emotional and difficult time for us, but the reassurance we received was a comfort to us all and on behalf of myself and my family we cannot thank you enough for everything you did and are still talking about the funeral now. So the grieving procedure starts with fond memories of MOTHER/MOTHER-IN-LAW and of course GRANNY, we feel her in our hearts every day and will take some time to recover from the heartbreak. So a huge huge thank you to all at pearces funeral directors, hope you got the thank you , card, God bless you all...Mr.Mrs. Gardiner

  • 5 Paul Culbert 8th May 2021

    The care provided by Pearce Funeral Services was absolutely outstanding. The attention to detail was excellent and there were so many personal touches that I have no hesitation giving the highest recommendation. From my first contact I felt that their service was designed to help meet my needs. I never felt rushed. They clearly have an approach that works. John Pearce was a pleasure to deal with, as were all his staff that I communicated with.

  • 5 Patrick Saunders 26th Apr 2021

    Mr Pearce and his team gave my mother a really nice send off. Nothing was too much trouble I am so glad I used them. A mother's funeral is so stressful and Pearce Family Services took away a lot due to their dignity and caring attitude. Thankyou again Mr Pearce.

  • 5 Matthew Pearce 23rd Apr 2021

    An individual and caring service, with attention to all our needs from our first telephone contact. It’s a distressful time losing a loved one, but John and his team were wonderfully supporting to all the family. And all our requirements were met, all of the time.

  • 5 Shirley Burnham 29th Mar 2021

    Without exception, everyone I spoke to at Pearce Funeral Services took the time to listen, gave sensible answers to my queries and took all the anxiety out of arranging the event. The loss of Tony had been a body blow and complications surrounding the Covid-19 lockdown had only exacerbated my anxiety. It was therefore so refreshing to discover that the top man, John Pearce, and his team rose to the occasion, marshalled their many talents and, on the day itself, demonstrated that Tony's diminutive funeral could be both meaningful and very beautiful. I'd like to thank them

  • 5 Dawn Francis 24th Mar 2021

  • 5 Valerie Burston 20th Mar 2021

    Thank you so much, John and your whole team, for the most wonderful, compassionate and personal care you gave us as a whole family, for our mother’s funeral. You went out of your way to make such a sad time so much easier for us all to bear. We really appreciate the personal touches and total empathy shown by you, John.
