    James and his team did a superb job throughout.  I had personally never organised a funeral before,  Walton & Taylor helped me navigate the whole process, which was made ever more complicated by COVID-19.  I cannot thank them enough for their help and professionalism.

    Sensitive support in a difficult time. Always respectful and helpful with their suggestions for what to do. Speedy response on a Sunday to the initial call.

    Walton & Taylor organised my dear mother’s funeral and the service we received was absolutely impeccable.  We can’t put into words how professional, caring and understanding they are.  Everything we asked for was honoured without question.  A very difficult time made so much easier without stress or upset.  A superb service that could not be beaten.  James is just perfect for this job. He makes you feel totally relaxed while organising what you want and only advises if you require any. No pressure what so ever.  The service was just amazing. Everything you could ever require from a funeral.  Thank you so much Walton & Taylor.  All the best for the future.  Mark & Fiona Russell

    Considering the Covid-19 restrictions, the funeral arrangements were well organised and considerate to the bereaved relatives. A special thanks to Sue and James

    The arrangements were very satisfactory so far as participants at the crematorium were concerned, therefore I've scored the Undertakers services as excellent. Unfortunately, the videocam was not so perfect, as several users have commented that the speakers (i.e. myself and the Minister, Rev Jane Gaffney) were barely audible. Whilst this did not detract from the value of the service at the time, the problem has left a sense of disappointment, in view of the prospect not being fulfilled. There was some variation depending upon the means of reception, but in general it was rather poor.

    As no-one was able to travel to the funeral, we are unable to review the actual ceremony. But the staff are very kind and helpful on the phone.

    They done the best they could with all the restrictions placed on them due to the Coroner Virus it's something we've never had to deal with before & hopefully never have to again

  • 4 Sarah Lamb 4th Apr 2020

    Excellent and compassionate  service all around but sadly the details of how people could leave their donations were not pur in the paper with her death announcement - we presumed that it would be there and now sadly no monies have been collected for her. Sarah Lamb

    James Pargetter replied
    Dear Mrs Lamb Thank you for your comments. Whilst the link to your mother’s obituary page was placed in the notice where the donations can be sent it was an oversight on my behalf to not clearly inform people that donations can be made there. If you would like to make contact with our office we can look at rewording your notice and placing it again for you so that some monies can be collected for Myton Hospice. Sorry for any inconvenience. Best Regards James

    We were pleased with the way the funeral went, everything happened as it should, and all meetings with James went smoothly. Would recommend them.

  • 5 Elizabeth Foster 26th Dec 2019

    Excellent service from the initial visit to discuss and organise the funeral for my husband to the actual funeral. They were professional, respectful and kept me well informed on what was happening and answering any queries I had. On the day of the funeral everything went smoothly and exactly as I had hoped for, on what was obviously a very emotional day.

  • 5 Christopher Watts 3rd Dec 2019

    Thank You so much to the entire team. The requirements were to a very tight schedule. These are MOT'S: Moments Of Truth. When everything has the potential to go wrong and the effort and dedication paid off and W&T delivered.

    James, Sue and the rest of the team at Walton & Taylor were extremely helpful, informative and happy to accommodate all our requests for my father’s service (from the piper to the tartan rug to the extra photos in the order of service). Their attention to detail and regular communication with us during the planning period was great and the service itself went exactly as we had wanted – a truly uplifting celebration of my dad’s life, which he would have loved. When you have never organised a funeral before, it can be a very daunting prospect at a time of great emotion. Walton & Taylor guided us sensitively through the process and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone else coping with a bereavement.

  • 5 Peter Swann 19th Nov 2019

    Incredibly professional, sensitive and accommodating to all our needs and requirements. I was overwhelmed with their attention to detail and ensuring the funeral was exactly as planned. I would certainly recommend them to anybody who needs their services.
