    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.

    Given the circumstances, I couldn’t of  picked a better company. Pearce Funeral Services felt more of a personal company rather than commercial and they went above and beyond for me and my family with courtesy calls and emotional support right up until the end of the service. I personally felt like I had known Dave for a very long time and the support he gave me was incredible and all the little details never went unnoticed. Thank you for giving my dad the best possible send off he could have.
