Hello John, I and my family would like to take this opportunity in thanking you for your professionalism in dealing with the our beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather and husband's funeral. You were at all times gentle and very understanding of the sorrows that we were experiencing and at every moment your assurance was so much uplifting for us. You and your team made every visit to the chapel of rest welcoming and the funeral service you adopted and accommodated to meet our special needs and rituals was most appreciated. We donated the Om symbol to you, with little knowledge that we would be using it again within two weeks for our uncle's funeral. Thank you. Siddharth

    Dave and everybody at Pearce’s were very thoughtful and understanding at a extremely  difficult time for myself and family. 

  • 5 Caroline Kalina 1st Oct 2017

    Throughout our discussions with John Pearce, my family and I, felt well supported. He treated us with dignity and respect and listened carefully to our requests.  As Mr Pearce guided us, he was also happy to answer our questions and gave us advice on the hymns and  flowers that we had chosen.  As we had decided that we wanted a printed service sheet to commerate our mother's life Mr Pearce was equally knowledgeable in this area.  His offer to prayer for us was also very touching which I thank Mr Pearce for.   On the day of the funeral we were guided by him and everything was handled with compassion.  This is why I have rated Pearce Funeral Service as 'excellent'.  Equally the service was delivered beautifully by the Revd. George Fleming. For anyone going through such a difficult process as this, rest assured Mr Pearce will be by your side.

    Having used Pearce funeral services once, I will never use another company when it's next needed. They were absolutely remarkable, planning a funeral is one of the hardest things you have to do but John and the team took all the stress from us, they did everything as my father wanted and the attention to detail was lovely, they showed love, compassion and respect from start to finish and I can't thank them enough.
