From first contact we found that John and his team made what is a difficult time so much easier with their caring and knowledgeable support Nothing was too much trouble. All the small details such as providing umbrellas at the funeral to listening to exactly what we wanted with no pressure to pay more than was necessary. John and his team were available 24/7 to answer and help with any queries. Even checking in on my mum on the day of the funeral and posting a laminated order of service for her as a keepsake We are extremely grateful and cannot praise them highly enough

Sharon Heather 25th Feb 2020

All the team at Pearce's were so kind and considerate from the moment I spoke to them. Dave especially, made sure we had everything we needed and nothing was too much trouble even when things were changed at short notice. I would recommend them for the respect and sympathy shown to the whole family as well as for Mum, when she passed away.

Karen Odwyer 24th Feb 2020

  • 5 Shirley Trevaskiss 9th Feb 2020

    We found John Pearce and his team excellent in our recent dealings with them regarding my Fathers funeral. They were professional, compassionate and extremely helpful with all aspects of the service and arrangements. In what is undoubtedly, a very sad time, they guided us through the entire process. I would highly recommend them.

  • 5 Siobhan Elliott 6th Feb 2020

    After our mother passed away, John Pearce and his team took care of all the necessary arrangements with considerable compassion and efficiency. From the first contact, we felt reassured that we were in good hands. John guided us through each step of the process with great kindness, always accommodating our needs and wishes, making us feel that nothing was too much trouble. We visited our mother at the chapel of rest and took great comfort from its peaceful and respectful setting . On the day of the funeral, John and his team were exceptional, making sure the service and burial proceeded in an unhurried and dignified manner. John even brought a box of rose petals to the graveside, an unexpected touch that we greatly appreciated. I cannot recommend John and his team highly enough; they provided professional, compassionate support at a difficult time.

  • 5 Tracey Mosley 26th Jan 2020

    I would highly recommend Pearce Funeral Services to care for your loved one when their time comes. Not only do they just look after your loved one, they also care for the family throughout the entire process and will continue to do so after the funeral.  Every person is professional and respectful and I personally wouldn’t use anyone else to entrust my loved one with.

  • 5 William Hiscocks 17th Dec 2019

    Excellent service throughout the whole process. Very attentive throughout. Have to praise all the  staff on the day. Carrying the coffin on the day was extremely tricky due to the weather. All the bearers did very well in trying conditions. Would highly recommend Pearce funeral services.

  • 5 Ashleigh Poole 26th Nov 2019

    I couldn’t thank Pearces enough for everything they have done. They really were brilliant and have been so nice and really helpful. They also ensured my dad had the best send off. Thank you so much.

  • 5 Claire McDermott 20th Nov 2019

  • 5 Debbie Wear 10th Nov 2019

    Pearce funeral services and John were excellent . They helped guide us through a very stressful time. Would highly recommend them . 

  • 5 Roslyn Timlin 5th Nov 2019

    Nothing was too much trouble. From first discussions through to the funeral I knew I had support and I knew I could ask questions if I had any. John was very accommodating with making sure I had the correct design on the casket and very very patient. The staff at the funeral home were also accommodating, compassionate and extremely helpful when I visited mum and again nothing was too much trouble. They helped me through a range of emotions ie nervous laughter to near enough hysteria and always answered any questions or concerns I had. When I asked John a question about something I’d read on the internet and I was worried, he said to always ring and ask if I needed to know anything.  They also supported my request to drive past one of my mums favourite haunts on the way to the crematorium. I felt reassured mum and I were in good hands and they were always very respectful of mum and I. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pearce Funeral Services.

  • 5 Peter Lango 28th Oct 2019

    Very patient and caring made sure I was comfortable and took time to help me plan the funeral. Even went on the computer and found where my mum's ashes were buried so my step father's ashes can be put beside my mum. Lovely caring staff and company would recommend them.

  • 5 Lynn Jones 23rd Sep 2019

    Pearce funeral services Stratton st margaret were excellent in dealing with the funeral of my father I would recommend them to anybody they just could not do enough for us and made it a very special day to remember

  • 5 Linda Kendall-Ball 4th Aug 2019

    John and the team are the type of people that can never do enough for you. And not only do they do so much but they are deeply kind and caring in it. I can't recommend them highly enough. They were such a gift to our family at the darkest time of our lives. Thank you so much guys

  • 5 Chris Allen 31st Jul 2019

    We contacted a number of funeral directors to gain an understanding of requirements and pricing, some were fairly rude; quite business oriented. John was happy to take the time to explain everything showing a great sense of understanding and empathy. We chose John and his colleagues as they were extremely professional, informative and caring in their handling of our affairs at such a sensetive time. John was a pleasure to work with and couldn't do enough for us in every aspect of his work. We would recommend him should it be unfortunate enough that the situation occur.

  • 5 Lesley Lawrence 30th Jul 2019

    Funerals aren't something you organise everyday, so we are so grateful that we selected John and his team to help and guide us through the process. We were surprised by the amount of time John allocated to our initial meeting, but on reflection, he teased out of us exactly what we and my late father wanted. The result was a beautiful service that did my father proud, and so many of our friends and family commented on this. Thank-you John for helping us through this difficult period, and for taking away the pain of this whole process.

  • 5 Ingrid Howard 26th Jul 2019

    Hi John, Could not fault anything, every thing arranged was right. Kind regards Ingrid

  • 5 Peter Anderson 14th Jul 2019

    It was a very good service and thank you so much
