    Mr and Mrs George enabled us to cope at a distressing time following the death of our mother. The funeral arrangements were simplified and all of the necessary formalities and choices were explained to us. The funeral was as we wished. Thank you both.

    I would like to thank Ian and his wife for their kindness and professionalism at the sad time of my mum's passing. They made everything so easy for me guiding me through everything that needed to be done. Also on the funeral day I would also like to praise Ian and his staff for their professionalism and respect shown. Thank you Mrs Frances Croft

    Ian acted with total professionalism, respect and was most helpful in all aspects throughout. I would recommend him to take care of anyone’s wishes in these difficult times.

  • 5 Ann McCulloch 24th Nov 2017

    Ian did an excellent job of arranging my husbands funeral. Nothing was too much trouble and he was always at the end of the phone. Thank you.

    Contacted a few companies. His was the most competitive price which is a good start but the whole matter was dealt very well indeed and he clearly extended himself in what he did and how he approached it. I would have no hesitation in saying Ian George should be on the top of your list to contact. The service was exactly what we wanted  Most excellent service in what is a difficult occassion.

    My family were very grateful for the whole organisation of the funeral arrangements by Ian and his wife. The planning and execution was wonderful and help under such dire circumstances were great, this helped take the stress away from my family who were suffering as you would expect after losing the mother who was the hub of the family. Thank you all.

    Ian and Danesha couldn't do enough to help me at this time of sadness. They lead me all the way and explained each stage from the time of death all through to the funeral and beyond. There recommendations regarding Minister and Flowers were second to none and their own professional manner was impeccable. I will not forget the arrangements they made to collect Mum from Wales taking her back to where she was born. Thanks again

    Following the death of my little  Mum , l could not have picked a better company than Ian George, I didn't want a big company, l didn't want Mum to just be another person , she deserved special treatment and Ian ENSURED that is what we ALL got. Both him and his lovely wife supported me through everything from the call to say Mum had died to the end Ian read my needs like a book and quitely guided me in a caring , professional manner. At a very difficult time in someone's life , to have a person you can totally be yourself with is such a help. My daughter and l went to visit Mum and what Ian had done was outstanding , she looked beautiful, a man with real talent who saw her just as she was in life though he had never met her, she was my Mum but somehow looked much younger than her 90 yrs and so at peace - thank you for that Ian. I CANNOT praise Ian and his work highly enough, he has a small , friendly family business but a heart that is huge and understanding like no other. Thank you Ian you are in my heart x

    Ian George was requested to carry out Tracey's funeral as he carried out her fathers in 2015. I have to say that on both occasions he proved to be an excellent choice with his very personal involvement taking away a lot of pressure on the family.

  • 5 Sandra Ager 19th Sep 2017

    Chose Ian because he is a family firm and I wanted that personal touch. Didn't regret my choice for a moment. Ian guided me through the process in a very friendly and understanding way, but very efficient. He took the service for us (didn't know funeral directors could do this, but it suited us much better than having a priest) and gave a lovely, thoughtful, funeral.

  • 5 James Holmes 18th Sep 2017

    The professionalism of Ian George funerals at this very somber time was beyond expectations. His help and support in all matters was greatly received. I would recommend Ian George funeral directors every time. 

  • 5 Kim Lloyd 11th Sep 2017

    Professional & compassionate team to deal with. Highly recommended.

  • 5 Susan Mackenzie-Ford 4th Aug 2017

    Ian George funeral service was both professional and supportive as we arranged a cremation and memorial service. Ian and his wife were friendly, regularly kept us up to date with how things were progressing and nothing was too much trouble for them. Highly recommend their services.

  • 5 Richard Guy 4th Aug 2017

    Ian was extremely helpful in organising the arrangements after death and the service for my Mother's funeral. He helped us formulate the order of service and then put all the arrangements in place so that the day was a wonderful tribute to my Mother. All done with great empathy and smooth efficiency.

  • 5 Rupert Linton 1st Aug 2017

  • 5 Nicola Coulston 12th Jul 2017

    Everything went smoothly and to plan, despite my worries I was kept calm by Ian George, the funeral director . I will be recommending him to others.

  • 5 Susan Piff 4th Jul 2017

    Thank you from all the family very pleased with how everything went 

  • 5 Susan Wadley 15th May 2017

    A very good overall service at a very reasonable cost from Ian, who was professional but friendly and easy to deal with and I would highly recommend him. I would also like to thank the minister, who Ian arranged, Father David Humphrey for a service done with such ease and compassion, 

  • 5 Paul Richter 12th May 2017

    Ian is very personable, guiding you through the whole process with sensitivity and feeling. The funeral was very well organised and carried out with the highest level of professionalism, whilst maintaining a human element at what is a very difficult time. Nothing was too much trouble for him. His support made the process of organising a funeral as easy as is possible under the circumstances. Thank you to Ian, his wife Denesha and his professional team for their help.

  • 5 Laura Bannon 10th May 2017

    Just so pleasant and easy to work with. Nothing was too much trouble and I mean nothing - a wheelchair was made available for my elderly mother and a recording of an LMS steam train going up Shap Fell was also produced (don't ask). Mr George was so nice and normal, his wife kind and understanding, it was almost like being looked after by old friends. The funeral itself went really smoothly and we were made to feel by Mr George that his involvement in this last service for my father was a genuine privilege. Having read an article in a paper recently supporting the use of independent funeral directors I am so glad that I followed the advice given and chose Ian George. I would recommend him without reservation.

  • 5 Mark Larson 1st May 2017

    I am very grateful to Ian George for providing a thoroughly professional yet compassionate and personal funeral service. There was no pressure and Ian provided some well considered guidance and made some excellent suggestions that really added to my wife's funeral. None of us ever want to have to arrange a funeral for a loved one but Ian made it far less difficult. A very good choice if you require a funeral director.

  • 5 Lynsey Williams 25th Apr 2017

    Ian is a true gentleman and talked us through every step of the process. We found great strength by knowing our dad was being taken care of by Ian. Even in such sad circumstances my brother Craig and the rest of my family will remember your kindness and compassion and we thank you for taking care of us all. Thank you for everything you did for our Dad, including finding the RAF flag for us.
