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.

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

Dawn Francis 24th 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.

    Very respectful and caring from start to finish . They guided us all at every moment before the funeral and on the day. Nothing was too much trouble. We were able to give my wonderful husband of 57 years the perfect send off he deserved. Thank you so much to John and all his associates.

  • 5 Margaret McHugh 15th Feb 2021

    John and his team were outstanding! John was so polite, and sorted everything out for me and Mum's needs. He was very organised, and on the day of the funeral, he made a sad day easier to bare. Just to let us know constantly what was going on, and what we needed to do, to put us at ease and never to feel anxious at all, due to how sad it was for us. Contacting the office team, they were so good, polite, helpful, nothing seemed to be a problem, what ever I asked. I have had such bad times, to lose the two special people in my life, within a year! I have had John take care of both of the services. I would highly recommend John and his team to take care of your loved ones.

  • 5 Mary Southgate 9th Feb 2021

    John Pearce and his team are simply ourstanding, they have helped me on more than one occasion, from the first phone call through to the funeral, and after. 1st class without exception.

  • 5 Trudi Ackrill-Watson 18th Oct 2020

    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 !
