Luke Venn 29th May 2018

Went to several other funeral directors in Swindon. None gave such heartfelt care or attention to detail as Pearce Funeral Services. Having gone through the whole process now, I can confirm that no request is too small, or detail too fine. I could not recommend them highly enough!

Emma Dean 15th May 2018

John and Dave couldn’t be faulted.  The company as a whole is wonderful, they’re supportive, allow you space when you need it and explain everything to the fullest.   We wouldn’t of wanted our daughter to of been looked after at this horrible time by anyone else.  The funeral was breathtakingly perfect, everything was as we wanted and more.  We can’t thank you enough for everything!

    John and his team provided an impeccable and compassionate service at such a difficult time for our family.  They dealt with every single aspect from start to finish, and with complete care and respect. Nothing was ever any trouble. We are so grateful to them for all of their support and assistance. They were efficient, yet patient and maintained professionalism with sensitivity at all times.  So many friends and family passed comments as to how amazing they were, and we couldn’t agree more!  We truly cannot thank or recommend Pearce’s Funeral Director’s enough for their supportive, sensitive and professional approach.

    John and the team were respectful, efficient and acted like they really cared. At a very difficult time for our family, they were very considerate and helped ease the pain of saying good bye to our mum. Thank you so much John.

  • 5 Karen Doyle 19th Feb 2018

    I am absolutely full of praise for the team at Pearce Funeral Services, SWINDON.  We first used John and his lovely team, November 2016, and I can say, absolutely any request we had was satisfied, managing some very challenging obstacles on my Mother-in-laws move from our house, not once, but three times! The funeral was just PERFECT. Just last week, John and his team were taking care of my Dad. John gave me so much help in planning the funeral, and suggesting wonderful ideas, that were just right. The funeral was, dare I say it, wonderful. I think the personable, kind, sensitive, caring nature of Pearce is what is so very different to other Funeral directors I have previously used. 10 changes to the order of service wasn’t too much trouble either!! I genuinely feel this is a vocation rather than a job for everyone that works there!  It’s so nice to have the love and support when you need it.  Thank you John, you are the best! ❤️

  • 4 Lynn Jones 12th Feb 2018

  • 5 Christopher Wood 30th Jan 2018

    I cannot rate Pearce's highly enough. John Pearce showed just the right amount of compassion and was businesslike when necessary. He guided us through a difficult and thankfully unfamiliar process with professionalism and care, managing our requirements with quiet efficiency. The whole team at Pearce's was professional and caring at all times. For anyone facing the task of organising a funeral, I would highly recommend you contact Pearce. 

  • 5 Diane Freegard 23rd Jan 2018

    Thank you to Dave and the team at Pearce Funeral Services for managing for us so well hat is an upsetting and difficult process. Always available to discuss any elements of the funeral process and never rushed. Recommended.

  • 5 Isabel Carnsew 22nd Jan 2018

    From the start of the process David was so helpful as patient.  At no point were we sold to. His recommendations were spot on. Very helpful during a tough time.  Thank you from all of us.
