Dave and his team were brilliant through a very upsetting time. They showed great respect to our loved one and nothing was too much trouble. They took away so much of the pressure of organising a funeral and Daves recommendations were perfect.

    Nothing was too much trouble They were amazing and made everything easy at such a difficult time! From our first meeting when John came to collect Will from our home in the middle of the night we knew we would be in safe hands! There was never any pressure put on us to make a decision - it was all at our own pace! Even payment is not required until after the funeral and even then you have a few weeks in which to pay it which takes the pressure off at such an emotionally charged time! On the day of the funeral John literally walked us through every part , making the send off special in every way I cannot recommend Pearce Funeral Services enough !!! They really are a family business ! and a big part of ours now !

  • 5 Anita Amoako 14th Jun 2020

    After being with funeral home where there was no empathy, no duty of care to the deceased or the family we made the difficult decision to move our beloved. Even at a short notice Pearce funeral services was amazing. They responded to my queries with immediate phone calls. They kept me up to date with progress of the funeral without me contacting them. The best level of care I could have found. I have used 3 different companies in my life and this is the best one to date. Go with them and you will know you have a first class service from them.

  • 5 Hilary Morton 9th Jun 2020

    John's attention to detail and care was second to none. His team were very professional and unintrusive on the day, everything was perfect I couldn't have asked for more.
