Thank you to everyone at Stibbards

They were so attentive to all the small details that you wouldn’t think of at this time. They make everything so easy. We dealt with Diane and she was lovely. On the day everything ran very smoothly and professionally, the drivers just did everything and the cars were stunning.I honestly couldn’t fault one single thing.
I should mention Karon Grant too, our personal celebrant. She came and met the family and helped us through the organising, listening and fulfilling everything we wanted to say and do. I’m so glad we had her.
What more can I say? It was a lovely way to say goodbye to a loved one.
Thank you to everyone involved.

5 Nicole Evans-Dear 4th Dec 2023
We are beyond grateful for the support Stibbards and Sons gave us from start to finish when planning our baby’s funeral. Sue took as through everything step-by-step at a pace we felt comfortable with. She made enquiries with minsters, took into account my disabilities when liaising with cemeteries and even offered us use of their wheelchair accessible vehicle. The embalming process was emotional for us but we were provided with assurances and communication during the process made us feel comfortable. The chapel of rest offers a safe, comfortable and peaceful place to visit a loved one and the team will work around you to ensure your visit isn’t interrupted by others. On the day the team provided us and our son with the upmost respect and everything ran smoothly.
We as a family would highly recommend Stibbards and Sons to anyone considering entrusting their loved one into the care of a funeral director.

Stibbards were everything we hoped they would be and more.
Debbie in the office was informative and helpful, talking us through what would happen at each stage.
The day of Mum’s funeral went like clockwork, the pallbearers were slick and professional and guided us so we knew what to do.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stibbards and we are so glad we used them for Mums funeral.

5 Peter Moore 8th Nov 2023
On preparing my mum’s funeral I can not rate Kate in the office high enough, she was extremely helpful and always got back to me when I needed her assistance.
Even when my Dad called in to the office asking questions, he was alway mad to feel at ease and was ensured everything was in hand.
On the day of mums funeral the guys made sure everything run smoothly.
Thank you to all and for looking after my mum on the lead up to her final departing day.
Lee Marston repliedDear Peter, thank you allowing us to come into your lives at such a difficult time, I am so pleased that Kate and the team looked after you all so well, I will ensure that your thoughts are shared with Kate who always tries to go above and beyond.
5 Janice Lyons 7th Nov 2023
Stibbards of Hadleigh have arranged 2 recent funerals for me. I have dealt with both Wendy and David, who are professional, yet very friendly and sympathetic. On both occasions they arranged for Rev David Coster to take the service which was perfect. Scott sensitively directed proceedings both times too and was caring and attentive. He even took time after each service to create little posies for me from the funeral flowers, which was a lovely touch and so much appreciated.
Lee Marston repliedDear Janice, we are so pleased that Wendy, David, Scott and the team were able to support and care for you as a family so well. I know that we have cared for your family on a number of occasions, and we hope that the knowledge that your loved one and your family are being looked after so well brings you great comfort. Thank you for your truly kind expressions of gratitude
5 Jason Porter 13th Nov 2023
