    At a difficult time Sue and her team were brilliant. Caring, supporting, advising. They took away all the pressures and we felt like one of their family. Can't praise them enough. Thank you all.

    Alan you were a lovely gentleman to guide through the arrangements and you chose so well for Maggs. The coffin and the ribbons and the flowers were so beautiful and I shall never forget. It was a privilege to help you once again. Sue

  • 5 Rosie Dixon 26th Jan 2018

    The team at Murray's helped, guided and supported us through the arrangements and the funeral itself. Most importantly, we felt cared for and knew our dad (husband) was treated with dignity and respect. While organising and on reflection after the funeral, our family have all agreed that we are so fortunate to have used this family run firm. A very special Thank You to Sue Barke for your care and attention to detail. You helped us achieve a very personal funeral service. All aspects of the business were professional and impeccable. We cannot praise or thank Murray's enough and can only highly recommend Murray's Funeral Services.

    David Barke replied
    Dear Rosie Thank you so much for your kind words and comments, which mean a lot to myself and the team. I am pleased that as a team we managed to achieve the personal funeral and goodbye you wanted for your lovely Father. Sue
  • 5 Danny Moore 23rd Jan 2018

    The care, support and attention provided by Sue and her team were first class. All of the arrangements for the funeral were dealt with efficiently and sensitively. Many of the people who attended the service commented on how impressed they were by the way in which it the was conducted. Extremely pleased with Murray's, as is the whole family.

    David Barke replied
    Dear Danny, thank you so much for your kind words. It was an honour to look after your father in laws funeral. Mick was a quiet, unassuming gentleman. He will remain in my prayers.
  • 5 Margaret Baines 23rd Jan 2018

    Service was absolutely excellent especially as Dad's funeral was in Burnley. Sue & Dave excelled themselves in professionalism, dedication and made the overall process of me arranging Dad's funeral a lot easier to deal with. As well as this, as the funeral was in Burnley, there was A LOT of travelling/liaising they did from a distance and in actual fact, also dealt with issues that arose, out of their control, which they didn't necessarily have to deal with. We cannot praise them enough.....thank you Sue & Dave fir everything - words can't express how pleased I am that Dad chose your company as his Funeral Directors. An extra note - the hours put in by Sue to assist in this process are very impressive, I was in discussions sometimes very late at night - no fixed office hours for her! ;-)

    David Barke replied
    Dear Margaret, it was a privilege to help and guide you through the arrangements. I promised your father I would look after him and I know we all felt that the day went exactly as he would have wished. It was a team effort. I shall not forget your father he was a lovely gentleman.

  • 5 Julie Boni 20th Jan 2018

    I received an excellent service and could not fault anything. I was treated with respect and kept updated all the way through. I felt very comfortable with Tim who was my contact and felt like nothing was too much trouble. I cannot thank them enough for everything that they did for me.

    David Barke replied
    Dear Julie, I will certainly pass on your thanks to Tim, your kind words are much appreciated. It is my understanding that Kevan's funeral was very well attended, which is a ture testament how well respected he was in the community. Sue
  • 5 Stephen Booth 19th Jan 2018

    From the very first contact from the Paramedic team, until the last the service has been exemplary. In particularly each and every contact with Sue left me feeling that my Mothers last time on Earth was being handled by a true professional in her field. I can not praise this lady highly enough and without a moments hesitation i will recommend Murray's Funeral Services to anyone requiring assistance at a very difficult time for everyone. First Class.

    David Barke replied
    Dear Stephen I know how special your Mother was to you and your family and it was a privilege to help and guide you through the arrangements. Your kind words are indeed much appreciated. Sue

  • 5 Georgina Hogwood 22nd Dec 2017

    I cannot praise Murray's Independent Funeral Directors enough for the way they handled my mother's funeral.  Megan Griffiths handled all the arrangements with care and empathy; she was the consummate professional and I cannot thank her enough for her kindness.  Barry was with us on the day and I felt as if I had a gentle arm around my shoulders for the whole event.   They made a difficult time more bearable.

    David Barke replied
    Dear Georgina Thank you for taking the time to post such a nice thanks. I will pass on your kind words to Megan and Barry. I am pleased as a company we were a comfort to you. Sue
