    From first contact Taylor’s were excellent and made the whole process simple.  This was even more impressive given the changing regulations around funerals at the time and that the funeral was held around 200 miles away.

    From when I first spoke to Sam from Taylor’s I knew that I wanted to leave my dad in their hands. They were so helpful and kind all the way through, as my dad passed away from COVID-19 it was a very stressful and disturbing time. They kept me informed all the way of what was going to be happening and the steps we had to take. Sam even came to us to sign paperwork so that we didn’t have to go out in lockdown. We were devastated at not being able to see dad at the funeral home or dress him in his own clothes but Sam handled it so well and explained the reasoning behind everything because of these unprecedented And challenging times. Sam arranged for us to see dad in a closed coffin in a lovely calm and serine room and spend as much time as we wanted there with him, it was such a comfort, Jane looked after us so well. Samantha-the celebrant was so lovely, we talked through everything that the family wanted on the day of the funeral, even up until the last minute. They looked after dad so well. They assured us that we could call at any time for anything, big or small, concerning the arrangements or even just for a chat, which was so comforting. They kept dads ashes for two months, until I felt able to go and collect them, Jane looked after us when we got there, so kind and helpful. A wonderful team of people who know what they are doing and offer support, kindness and empathy.

    Everyone at Taylor's involved in organising my father-in-law's funeral was incredibly kind and considerate. They listened to all our wishes and concerns and brought it all together to give the simple yet elegant service he would have been proud of. Losing a loved one is extremely difficult but Sam and Samantha made it that little bit easier for everyone. I am very grateful for everything they did.

    Sam and his team are to be congratulated on the caring and unobtrusive way they conducted my wife’s funeral. Samantha his celebrant , delivered a wonderful  eulogy a fitting tribute to my wife and very emotional. With only 10 family members allowed to attend the web cast enabled many other family and friends to be a part of this very sad occasion. Thank you Sam and Samantha we won’t forget the help you have given us as a family.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Taylor’s as a caring and professional funeral director. Sam Taylor and the team worked tirelessly to understand our needs and to ensure that all the arrangements were in place to make sure everything ran smoothly on the day. The respect and dignity shown on the day helped the family get through at this emotional time..

    Everything was really nice and straight forward which is just what you need under the circumstances. On the occasion of the funeral everything went extremely well and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sam and his team.

  • 5 Tony Porter 20th Jan 2020

    Sam was extremely helpful and supportive throughout this difficult period. The service he provides as an independent funeral director is more personalised and empathetic than some of the larger concerns. He takes on board your individual requests and manages the whole process on your behalf.  I would wholeheartedly recommend Taylors to anyone .

    Incredible support and guidance from Sam and Samantha. Both are professional and empathic.  They handled everything for us with the upmost care and dignity. Really couldn’t have coped at this difficult time without them.

    I cannot put into words how amazing the team at Taylor’s are. They helped create the most perfect funeral for my partner whilst offering support and guidance for myself & family. I could not have wished for a better Funeral Director, they had 100% of my trust from the first meeting and couldn’t recommend them highly enough. I will be forever grateful, especially to Sam who made sure the entire day was perfect. Thank you for everything.

  • 5 Alison Richards 16th Sep 2019

    Sam and the team were absolutely amazing and carried out a wonderful service for our family, following our father's death. He was a member of the Royal British Legion and Sam arranged for the RBL Committee to carry out a Legion funeral, which is a very professional and respectful occasion. My brother and I felt extremely well looked after and would not hesitate to recommend Taylor's Independent Family Funeral Directors for anyone who has the unfortunate need to arrange a funeral in the Knowle and Dorridge area. Thank you again Sam, we appreciate everything you did for us. Kind regards, Alison and Adam.

    I would not hesitate to recommend Taylors. Their service is personal, professional, thoughtful, and unfussy. This local independent firm is excellent.

  • 5 Judith Davidson 15th Apr 2019

    Sam, Liza and his team were amazing. At such a difficult time they treated us with such respect and dignity. On the day of dad’s funeral all of the family were looked after, the flowers were beautiful and the civil celebrant Samantha Pitt did an amazing job and captured dad’s personality and spirit . Thank you so much
