I could not fault anything at my mothers funeral, John was there for me and the family, making sure we were all okay, Marjorie did a brilliant job, everyone commented on how she spoke about Mum. I would recommend Pearce Funerals they did an amazing job Thank you John xxx

Emma Anderson 26th Feb 2018

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.

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! ❤️

  • 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.

    Would highly recommend Pearce Funeral Services.

    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 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. 

  • 5 Jenny Davis 24th Nov 2017

    Everyone at Pearce's looked after us so well, they were brilliant and I highly recommend them for both a personal touch and professional service. At such a hard time for us they were kind and helpful.
