    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 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 Shelagh Clark 8th Oct 2018

    All staff at John Pearce Funeral Service could not have done more to make what is a very stressful time perfectly carried out. Dave Bashford went out of his way to make sure that I had all the information I needed and dealt with the changes in a professional and understanding way. The service from the time my husband arrived at our house to make our way to the church was perfect. I could not have asked for better. I would have no hesitation in recommending John Pearce for their superb service. Shelagh Clark

  • 4 Kathryn Broomfield 27th Sep 2018

    I thought Pearce funeral directors were very kind, considerate and professional. They dealt with a traffic issue that resulted in a delay in bringing Maria to the Crematorium. Fortunately there was no-one booked in after us so. So I felt we were not rushed.
