Would highly recommend Pearce Funeral Services. From start to finish Dave Bashford and the team were very professional and gave my father the send off he deserved going far beyond what myself and the family expected. Having to hand over a close member of our family I was happy that he was in good hands. Many thanks to Dave and the team.

    What is there good to say when as a family you are going through the loss of someone that means the world to you? So much to deal with on so many levels! Having John and his team to help us navigate through this time was something good to say. The genuine compassion and kindness shown to us by Pearce Funeral Service will never be forgotten.

  • 5 Clarry Bean 5th Jan 2018

    I cannot praise the company highly enough for the kind, sensitive, professional and caring way you dealt with my late wife, myself and the whole family. Nothing was too much trouble and all our queries and wishes were dealt with immediately. David was our main point of contact throughout and he helped make the whole experience more bearable for all of us. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for making my dad’s funeral bearable. Dave was so lovely and thought of everything, so that we didn’t have to. I used to work at Prospect and have therefore dealt with several local funeral companies, but I knew I wanted Pearce’s to look after my lovely Dad 

  • 5 Richard Thripp 25th Nov 2017

    The compassion and professionalism that was conducted throughout an emotional and deeply upsetting period of a loved ones end was always apparent.  Transparency with all costs and a listening ear just to help with coping, were a standard naturally achieved.

    Pearce Funeral Services were excellent. Very understanding and patient. The office staff Tracy and Belinda were very helpful and the Funeral Director David was very impressive, quietly organising family and mourners besides doing his formal duties. Pearce provided a first class service and I would recommend them to anyone.

  • 5 Siddharth Patel 31st Oct 2017

    Hello John, I and my family would like to take this opportunity in thanking you for your professionalism in dealing with the our beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather and husband's funeral. You were at all times gentle and very understanding of the sorrows that we were experiencing and at every moment your assurance was so much uplifting for us. You and your team made every visit to the chapel of rest welcoming and the funeral service you adopted and accommodated to meet our special needs and rituals was most appreciated. We donated the Om symbol to you, with little knowledge that we would be using it again within two weeks for our uncle's funeral. Thank you. Siddharth

  • 5 Lee Reeves 6th Oct 2017

    Dave and everybody at Pearce’s were very thoughtful and understanding at a extremely  difficult time for myself and family. 

  • 5 Caroline Kalina 1st Oct 2017

    Throughout our discussions with John Pearce, my family and I, felt well supported. He treated us with dignity and respect and listened carefully to our requests.  As Mr Pearce guided us, he was also happy to answer our questions and gave us advice on the hymns and  flowers that we had chosen.  As we had decided that we wanted a printed service sheet to commerate our mother's life Mr Pearce was equally knowledgeable in this area.  His offer to prayer for us was also very touching which I thank Mr Pearce for.   On the day of the funeral we were guided by him and everything was handled with compassion.  This is why I have rated Pearce Funeral Service as 'excellent'.  Equally the service was delivered beautifully by the Revd. George Fleming. For anyone going through such a difficult process as this, rest assured Mr Pearce will be by your side.

  • 5 Sophie Mastalerz 19th Sep 2017

    Excellent service from Pearce funeral service. They made a very sad time just about more bearable, the family would like to thank them very much and will recommend then to all our family and friends.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

What are disbursements?
