    Right from our first meeting with Rachel we received excellent, compassionate and very professional service and help. At a time when one is feeling so vulnerable and sad it was very comforting to know that every aspect of the burial was being addressed.
    On the day of the Cremation, Terry and his team ensured that every step of the procedure was dealt with reverence and efficiency.
    I was particularly touched with the gift for our memories. The words on the candle holder summed up our feelings so very well - I have already shared my experiences with friends in the Village. Thank you again to everyone who facilitated the process.

    Everyone was very friendly and helpful from the very beginning to the last. We were never put under any pressure as to what to have, and the little things you did meant a lot. For example the packets of forget me not seeds, the rememberance box, and the lovely photo. My family and I thank you for helping at a difficult time.

    From the minute we phoned to let Woodman's know my Dad had sadly passed away they were wonderful the whole team right through and after the funeral took place. We were so pleased everything run like clock work and also so sincere and friendly, nothing appeared too much trouble.

    Jessica Green was suggested to us to conduct the funeral and she was absolutely amazing it was as if she had known Dad for year's. Everyone who attended commented on how wonderful Jessica was made a sad day feel so special and unforgettable.

    Thank you all at Woodman & son and Jessica, so much for your kindness at such a difficult and sad time for our family.

    Many thanks from Gill, Joyce and Williams Family

    Staff were always under pressure and we felt as if we were 'processed'. Although we were given a written estimate we were shocked at the total cost when we looked through it later time when we were less upset. We really cannot see how you can justify such a bill. The legal services were not required and I would have preferred to not have those but don't remember being given a choice. Woodman's has changed hands since I used them before and I will be looking to use the services of another undertaker in future, most likely local family run firm.

    Thank you for your 4* rating and comments. We are sorry to hear of your concerns and have asked the Area Manager for Woodman & Son to investigate and report directly back to you. Dignity Legal Services is a free advisory service, which is offered for a period of 3 months from the date of the funeral and the call would have been to advise you of this free service and we are very sorry if you were inconvenienced by this. In the meantime, if you wish to contact the Client Relations department directly, their number is 0800 731 0655. Thank you once again for your review.

    Woodman & Son provided a warm, dignified approach to the whole process which I had never had to arrange before . They managed to put the family at ease and help through every aspect of funeral , cremation and arranging flowers, donations, photos, service sheet and just being on the end of the phone. Professional staff were very kind and considerate at all times.
    Thank you.
