During our sad time things were made so much easier by Amanda's professionalism. She kept me updated and informed at all times.
Peter recommended Eugene to us and I am so glad I followed his advice. The service, although sad, was made so much easier by his humour and lighthearted means of delivery and his ability to make everyone think he knew Dad.
I close friend of mine has asked for Eugene's details for when he father passes, which is a great compliment.
Thank you to all staff for your help in laying Dad to rest.

Rating 5.0
Excellent service. Can not fault anything. All wishes were carried out and arrangements were made in a very professional and caring manner. The funeral director who dealt with the arrangements actually dealt with my mother's arrangements a few years ago and I requested that he arranged my father's. His attention to detail is second to none and he always goes that extra mile.
Even three weeks after the funeral, I am receiving phone calls from different areas of your company to advise that people are there if we need anything at all, which is so nice.
The funeral director also made suggestions that I would never have thought of at the time, like burying Dad's ashes (they are going in the plot with Mum's) and he suggested doing them on their wedding anniversary which also happens to be Mother's Day, which we thought would be a lovely idea.
If I was ever asked to recommend a funeral director it would definitely be Clarabut & Plumbe.
Thank you so much for the excellent attention, care and service we received.
