    From the first contact with Ian George he was professional, kind and empathic, nothing seemed to be too much trouble, either with himself or his wife. Everything that we wished to have for my Mother we had and more. We totally recommend him and his Team.

    Ian and Denesha are the most compassionate, kind, caring and professional team. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who needs their services. They’ve helped me tremendously as a time that was incredibly tough.

    Very considerate and helpful going through everything. Lovely send off.

  • 5 John David Holmes 21st Sep 2019

    Ian's organisational skills, patience, communication, understanding and willingness to go along with my family's slightly irreverent / unconventional wishes (!) made us very pleased that we had chosen him and his company to see my wife off in the style she would have wanted.

    I guess you would say unfortunately I have had to ask for Ian George's services twice now in the last three years. Once in 2016 to hold a service for my late Grandmother...I had never had to arrange a funeral before and he was fantastic with me and in fact, came to my house and met the entire family and helped us as a group arrange a wonderful send off for my Nan. Then this year, actually this month I had to call upon him again as my mother suddenly died, it was so unexpected that I really didn't know what way to turn, Ian George thankfully took myself and my younger brothers under his wing and guided us through it, even reminiscing while giving the service of his own personal meeting with my mum back when arranging my Grandmothers service. It was a lovely personal touch and as simple as it was on such an awful day it makes me smile when thinking on it. To begin with, it was the price that made me contact Ian George, literally thousands under what I had been quoted, but it was him, Ian George, that made me contact him again at such a devasting time!

    Ian George provided a very professional service to our family when my mother passed away, he and his team were empathetic and all arrangements he made were carried out impeccably. I have no hesitation in recommending him without reservation.

    I was pleasantly surprised by how much time Ian and Denesha gave to me, Ian visiting my house twice followed by numerous phone calls and  e-mails to get precisely every small detail as we wanted it. They were also very constructive with their ideas to help us along the way. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to other prospective clients.

    Ian and Denesha were wonderful in their support, kindness and professionalism in everything before, during and after the funeral and internment. Very highly recommend.

    All i can say is first class

  • 5 J Hawkins 8th Jun 2019

    Ian was very professional, supportive and understanding throughout. He fully explained everything we needed to help us to make decisions and enable us to personalise the funeral. Everything was completed with a minimum amount of fuss and there was never any rush. He recommended a celebrant, Marie Pembridge, she was also excellent and very caring. There were many positive comments about the service. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Ian, Denesha and their team.

    Excellent friendly family firm who go the extra mile. Wonderful service from all.

  • 5 Rohit Machado 25th May 2019

    Fantastic service... Couldn't fault a thing!

  • 5 Andrew Shepherd 6th May 2019

    This is the second time we've used Ian in just a few months, but this time to look after my Mum. Even though it was out of Ian's area, we trusted Ian to arrange things for a funeral 70 miles away, which he did with the same professionalism and compassion as he did for us before with a local funeral. He facilitated our needs and Mum's wishes with sound advice and unobtrusive support and made sure that everything was perfect.

    Ian George and his wife Denesha listened to my thoughts and requests on how I would like my late Mother's funeral service to be carried out, showing kindness and understanding. Offering professional advice in a relaxed manner, no rush, when deciding on the finer details like the Order of Service, which my family and I truly appreciated, (I had requested a number of photographs & poems) which was a lovely tribute to my Mum. I requested Ian himself to take the Service, he read the tribute for my Mother with much warmth, thoughtfulness and above all with a smile, which was perfect for my loving Mum who had had, a sense of humour. I am very pleased to have chosen a family run funeral service, who carried out their very important role in looking after their clients, so admirably, thank you. Mrs Chris Ryder Hon Alderman

  • 5 Gillian Bell 29th Mar 2019

    Both Ian and Denisha were excellent. They were very professional and supportive at a very difficult time, nothing was too much trouble for them. On they day of the funeral, again, Ian was excellent, he made sure everything ran smoothly. We have had so many positive comment about the service, this couldn't have happened with out Ian and Denisha's support. Thank you.

  • 5 Lindsay Williams 25th Mar 2019

    The kindness and professionalism was really appreciated. Would definitely recommend your services.

  • 5 Clive Herbert 24th Mar 2019

    Everyone who attended said it was a wonderful celebration of her life and was so like her. Thank you for everything you have done at this difficult time.

  • 5 Marilyn Burn 2nd Mar 2019

    Kind, efficient, and prepared to take whatever trouble it took to get the funeral as I wanted it.

  • 5 Angela Shepherd 25th Feb 2019

    Ian was absolutely first class, providing a professional and respectful service that allowed us to say goodbye to Mum with a celebration of her life rather than just grief at her death. Ian and Denesha have managed to keep the best of tradition but include the best of technology to prepare and run the funeral. We interviewed a few funeral directors before deciding who we would use to make saying goodbye special. Ian George was by far the clearest and most sensitive in presenting his service. Nothing was rushed and we never felt under pressure to make decisions too quickly. He presented various options but if we preferred anything different he did his best to facilitate that. Mum was always very particular about how she looked, and Ian dressed her, did her make-up and hair to ensure that she looked as she would have wanted when people visited her at his chapel of rest. And, although few people like mentioning this, he gave the best value - for example, the limosines we at our disposal for the funeral, wake and committal, with no additional charges. Ian and Denesha always returned calls and emails very quickly, no matter what the time of day or evening. Thank you Ian and Denesha, Mum had a really good send off with all the friends and relatives (80 of them) agreeing.

    Ian was very caring and made a huge difference at a difficult time. A wonderful professional service with advice when it was requested. All my family are very grateful for how he handled things from the day of my Mother's death.

  • 5 Steven Read 6th Jan 2019

    Ian treated us with such care and accommodated all our wishes. I can’t thank him and his team enough. 

  • 5 Sharon Heywood 11th Dec 2018

    Ian and Danesha have helped me to arrange two funerals over the past year. They're excellent. Kind, respectful and caring. I knew I was in good hands at an extremely sad and difficult time. Ian led the services and both were very lovely, appropriate and what my family members wanted. It's important to have someone who is both knowledgeable experienced who can help guide you step by step through the processes. Would recommend them to anyone who has the unfortunate need to organize a funeral for their loved one.
