The whole team at Jackson’s are amazing , nothing was too much trouble when arranging family funeral  Sarah went above and beyond her role to support the family through this very difficult time  We had a family thank you all from the bottom of our hearts 

Michelle Crowther 15th Sep 2021

Sarah was just amazing from the first time we met her all the way through to dads funeral. Nothing was too much trouble for her. The kindness and compassion she showed to mum (and my brother and I) was outstanding. ‘Thankyou’ seems inadequate but it is sent with sincere gratitude for Sarah and her team. Thankyou so much. 

Keith Richardson 30th Aug 2021

Very impressed with all of Peggy's funeral arrangements from start to finish. Your compassion and complete professionalism was nothing less than first class. A special thanks goes to Sarah and Jenny whose visits to the family home certainly put all at ease at this sad time. Let me not forget the other members of your team who were equally very professional and impressive. On behalf of all Peggy's family, a big thank you.

    I cannot thank Sarah and the Team enough for their professionalism, efficiency and sensitivity during this exceptionally difficult time. Their approach was highly personalised and they fulfilled every wish of both my mother and myself with enthusiasm and confidence, giving helpful recommendations and advice, and words of comfort and encouragement when needed. They so expertly facilitated the difficult logistics of preparing for a funeral for somebody who had passed in a different County. Their hard work and compassion resulted in a meaningful and stress-free preparatory experience and a beautiful and seamless service, which was greatly appreciated by all who attended. I would highly recommend Jackson Family Funeral Directors, Worcester, for anybody looking for an intimate and supportive environment to collaborate in creating a highly personalised service for their loved one.

    At the hardest moment of our lives, Sarah and Jenny not only made it more bearable, but embraced our family with open arms and supported us with all they had every step of the way. Nothing was too much trouble, they went above and beyond for us at every opportunity. Such a personal experience. They didn’t feel like funeral directors, they felt like friends when we needed it most. Thank you so much.

  • 5 Paula Edmonds 28th Apr 2021

    After contacting several funeral directors for what was a fairly difficult remote cremation, I got through to Sarah . Empathy and customer kindness were a priority . Efficient and knowledgeable Sarah made the process sincere and easy to deal with . Fantastic care before, on the day and after . Absolutely faultless. I would say don't bother going anywhere else if you want support and efficiency. Brilliant service .

    Jonathan Branchett replied
    Paula your review is very gratefully received from Sarah and the team here at Jackson Family Funeral Directors. Thank you

  • 4 Alethea Northwood 3rd Apr 2021

    Jacksons handled the funeral arrangements very well. We had personal conversations with them as well, and kept us informed as much as possible especially when the funeral had to be postponed because of a delayed post mortem. We would recommend them to anyone who needed their services.

  • 5 Laura Coffin 1st Apr 2021

    The team have been amazing throughout, especially after a sudden death of a loved one.  Very understanding, communication was great, always there if we needed anything. Couldn’t fault them. 

  • 5 Alan Clark 19th Mar 2021

    Jackson Family Funerals have just dealt wonderfully with my brother - his sudden death resulted in a number of complications that would have fazed many companies; however; Jacksons took it all in their stride and made what could have been an extraordinarily stressful time much easier. As our elder family members have lived to good ages, we've recently had to deal with a number of relatives departing in rather quick order - with rather varied service from local firms whom seemed to have their eye on what they could charge more than the service they should have provided. Jacksons are a considerable distance from our area but this didn't affect the liaison or the funeral provision, our experience of them was far superior to previous undertakers Our family preference this time - and acknowledging the present Covid restrictions - Jacksons provided a simple cremation only undertaking most efficiently and kept good friendly contact going by email and phone. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

  • 5 Graham Teesdale 14th Mar 2021

    At a very emotional time the service offered by Jackson’s Funeral Directors was outstanding. They were so caring and supportive helping us with everything and we just can’t thank them enough. 

  • 5 Deborah Wellings 13th Mar 2021

    I cannot thank Sara and the whole team at Jackson Family Funerals enough! They are highly professional but also provide a very personal service which we found supportive at a very difficult time. There was regular communication to ensure that everything was arranged smoothly.  My father's funeral was everything we had hoped it would be so we would highly recommend this company.

  • 5 Trevor Freeman 13th Mar 2021

  • 5 Caroline Reed 10th Mar 2021

    Loosing my Mum & best friend during Covid lockdown was very hard for me, but Sarah from Jackson Family Funeral Directors was superb she made me feel like a friend instead of a client, listened with humility whilst I cried, & did her best to cheer me up, I told her about my Mum's relationship with my rescue Bulldogs, & even shared photo's of them, & not once did she make me feel anything other than a wonderful level of care & compassion, & because of the way they made me feel I would genuinely love to meet them one day, so Thank you for helping me through the worst time of my life, I would recommend them to anyone, they are professional & caring, Thank you!
