Nicholas Pinchin 29th Jan 2019

I dealt with John Pearce from start to finish where my partners funeral was concerned and I can honestly say what an amazingly caring, sympathetic, thoughtful and professional gentleman he is. On the few occasions when John wasn't available the other staff were of the same high standard. From the moment that I first sat down with John I knew that I had made the right decision to choose Pearce Funeral Services for my partners funeral. John guided me through every aspect and answered all my questions, making informed suggestions when needed and allowing time for me to compose myself when overcome with emotion. John was able to provide me with advice on their recommended florist and also celebrant, nothing was missed and the funeral itself was amazingly beautiful service. I can honestly recommend Pearce Funeral Services every time. Many many thanks John and all the team. NP

  • 5 Kevin Allen 24th Jan 2019

    Pearce funeral services are undoubtedly the best in their field offering genuine sympathy and support in a very distressing and vulnerable time! No request is too large to tailor a funeral plan so you feel you have given someone the best send off. Thank you Dave, Neil and everyone at Pearce!

  • 5 Gwen Breakspear 19th Jan 2019

    John Pearce provides an incredible level of professionalism and organisation combined with caring and compassion.  Throughout the whole process from the initial meeting to the funeral day itself, nothing was ever rushed, and we always felt that John was completely in control of everything that needed to be done.   Les was verger at St Philips Church for many years, and with him I encountered many funeral directors.  When Les died there was no doubt in my mind that John was my first choice, and he exceeded all of my expectations.  You will not find a better funeral director.

  • 5 Bridget Boulton 18th Jan 2019

    The service provided by Pearce was very professional indeed. The team was warm and supportive. John was full of empathy and yet sensitive and discreet. We all felt we could trust him with our mist private and personal moments of grief and he offered understanding. He simply served us.  The event itself was efficiently managed and fell into place smoothly so we could focus on our emotions and linger on treasured memories. Thank you!

  • 4 Michelle Page 23rd Nov 2018

    Everything ran so smoothly as per Pearces. Only hitch was where the wrong surname was used by celebrant so myself and family were on edge all service in case done again. Thank you John and team though

    John Pearce replied
    Dear Michelle, Thank you for taking the time to leave your kind review regarding our services. I am very pleased and encouraged that you feel everything went smoothly regarding the service you received from Pearce Funeral Services in particular. We completely understand and are very sorry to hear that you have been upset through the family surname being mispronounced, by the celebrant, during the funeral ceremony. We did provide the celebrant with all of the correct information, including your mother's full name. I have spoken with the celebrant on your behalf and passed on your feedback. They are truly sorry for any mistake that has happened and, following my discussion with the celebrant you will be receiving a phone call from them directly to discuss the matter. Please do feel free to contact me directly should you wish to discuss this matter further, or if you have any further queries. With kindest regards, John Pearce

  • 5 Lesley Traish 22nd Nov 2018

    Excellent service 

  • 5 Tracey Mosley 19th Nov 2018

    John and his colleagues looked after mum with dignity and respect. She was cared for very well during her time there. Nothing was ever an issue for them to do and they accommodated our wishes fully. John was particularly patient with my father when discussing arrangements and this was priceless. Without John's guidance during her funeral I think we would have been lost. I cannot thank them enough for what they did for us all during this very difficult time xx

  • 5 Paul Williams 18th Nov 2018

  • 5 Jean Mabberley 6th Nov 2018

    I would recommend Pearce funeral services to my family and friends and others going through this difficult time. They where very welcoming, understanding and supportive to our family.
