Very professional, friendly and sympathetic service from the team at Jacksons. Mark and Jenny helped and guided us through the whole process following the loss of our dear mom. Whole heartedly recommend this firm for their personal service. Thank you.

Jackson’s provided a very professional, sympathetic, supportive service to me when I recently arranged my beloved sister’s funeral. I am very grateful for their patience and kindness at a very difficult time.

It was a complete shock to lose Sharon suddenly. The service I received from Sarah was absolutely incredible. Sarah was a complete rock in such difficult times. She was professional, helpful and went above and beyond to help our family. I cannot recommend Sarah and Jackson Funeral Directors highly enough. Keep up the good work the services you provide our town are 10/10. Thank you. Hayley

    On a very difficult day Mark and all the team from Jacksons Family Funeral Directors provided a first class, very friendly service.

  • 5 Alex Aramal 16th Oct 2020

    Everybody I dealt with at Jackson’s were extremely thoughtful and  professional when arranging the funeral and gave great guidance throughout. The service itself was perfect. Thank you Mark and Jenny for everything.

  • 5 Kayleigh Chapman 12th Oct 2020

    Matt and Laura looked after our little girl after she passed, along with the help from the team. Everyone was absolutely amazing. They made sure she had all her favourite things with her, and helped us all through the worst thing any parent can go through.  Lily’s final journey was perfect. The whole team went above and beyond to arrange her princess perfect journey. It was as perfect as could be. We were ran through the whole process before hand so once our daughter had passed, we didn’t need to have those difficult conversations. We were informed of everything we needed to do (register ect) and they organised everything else for us.  I felt in very safe and capable hands and was very grateful to have Lily looked after so well by Laura and Matt. Thank you so much for everything you did for our girl, and us.

    As a family, we could not fault Jackson’s Family Funeral Directors. From our first phone call to the day of the funeral all of Jackson’s staff we worked with were friendly, courteous, and made sure to put our family at ease. Whether it was calling up to ask a simple question, helping us with chasing down paperwork, or ensuring that the whole family were happy with choices made, Sarah helped us deal with the difficult situation at hand to ensure we were as comfortable as possible. Thank you Sarah, Jenny and all of Jackson's for everything.

  • 5 Gerry Lowe 14th Jul 2020

    Couldn't have wished for better. Kind and sensitive to the situation, and the funeral service was a perfect memory for us to treasure. Thank you to all at Jackson's.

    Matthew Jackson replied
    Many thanks for your kind review Gerry. Best wishes Tracey
  • 5 Elizabeth Baron 25th Jun 2020

    Outstanding service coupled with enormous kindness, respect and flexibility.  From the minute I spoke to Sarah and discussed the particular needs for my Brother's cremation (more challenging at a time of 'social distancing') I knew I had found the right Funeral Directors for me.  Sarah and her colleague Tracey could not have done more. Nothing was too much trouble. Reverend Moore officiated at a simple moving service. This was absolutely essential in order to comply with my Brother's needs and wishes. The peace of mind this gave me and my family is impossible to quantify. To put it another way, I travelled from London to Malvern for the service because, on one of the most difficult days of my life, I knew I was in safe hands. Thank you Jackson Funeral Service for everything. I will never forget your kindness and professionalism.

    Matthew Jackson replied
    It was our pleasure Elizabeth, thank you so much for your kind comments. Regards Tracey

    Matthew conducted the funeral of one of my close friends a couple of years ago, who passed at just 33. Since then, I have seen them grow into a wonderful, truly independent, funeral company who focus on families and not profits. As a provider of Pre-Paid Funeral Plans, I have worked with Matthew and the team on dozens of funerals, Including Ms Roberts recently and always found them to be compassionate, professional and empathetic to all situations. Currently the only Independent funeral director in Pershore

  • 5 Robert Lewis 2nd Apr 2020

    We had a professional & sympathetic experience arranging my dads funeral in very difficult times,  Mat & his team were amazing and helped guide me & my sister in all the steps along the way.  The small & intimate funeral give our dad a fitting & moving send off, at a very reasonable cost.   Thank you for making this so easy & special. Stay well in these troubled times. 🙏❤️😀🤝

    Matthew Jackson replied
    Thank you Rob, although the restrictions of attendance meant the service was not as fully attended as it should have been I'm glad that we still maintained dignity and respect for your father. Kindest regards, Matt

    Amazing 

  • 5 Jenny Campion 6th Sep 2019

    From first contact to the funeral itself Jackson Funeral Directors were outstanding. Extremely professional and a huge support.  Mark and the Bearers were immaculate. I cannot thank them enough.

  • 5 Valerie Shaw 17th May 2019

    I chose a direct funeral for my mum. The service was great , efficient . I knew what was happening , when and how. The staff communication was good and I was told what date cremation was on so I could remember her that day. Very pleased I chose this company and would defiantly recommend them.

  • 4 Christian Harvey 25th Apr 2019

    Mat was really helpful when I first called the company, explained a lot about the process.However, I think they need to improve their communication, when I called a was advised that as the death has been investigated by the coroner that we wouldn't need to have the Drs signature on cremation certificate. When we got the invoice ,on enquiring we were charged it because no autopsy then it applied.please make this clearer on your site. Secondly communication was poor, we had to call them to find out whether they had picked up the body and after around 2-3 weeks now we have to contact them to ask had the cremation. So I would suggest improving their communication with clients

  • 5 James Harris 12th Apr 2019

    From start to finish Matt has been helpful, patient and understanding. I left the bereavement team at the hospital in an uneasy daze and went straight to Jackson Family Funeral Directors. After walking in that first day I haven't had to worry about a thing. I cannot fault their service. Due to the nature of their service I hope not to need them too soon but I would not hesitate to seek their help again. I cannot thank them enough and hope this review goes a little way in doing so. Sincerely James Harris

  • 5 Ronnie Dewey 8th Apr 2019

    Amazing service, I'd been refused from multiple companies in my hometown of Sheffield but Matt Jackson and his colleagues were totally amazing I was at breaking point over what to do and Matt took care of everything I shouldn't have needed to use a company 100 miles away but so glad I did. I can never thank you enough. Many thanks, Ronnie,Shaun and Junior Dewey

  • 5 Robin Evans 24th Mar 2019

    From start to finish Matt, Mark and their staff couldn't have been more helpful and caring. They all made a difficult time an easier one to get through. On behalf of my family, many thanks to all . I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your excellent service.
