Because of Covid restrictions, I arranged the funeral for my father over the phone, and this went very well. The staff were very helpful and organised, and helped me through the process. The Celebrant was excellent, both in terms of planning the funeral, and also on the day of the service, holding everything together. Both the Celebrant and Funeral Director were incredibly supportive and helpful at the funeral. I was really pleased with the service, the music and location were perfect, and it felt like my father had been given the service that he would have wanted. My sincere thanks to everyone who helped me with the arrangements during this difficult time.

A very professional, patient and kind team who went the extra mile - even to daffodils and parking on the funeral day. Many thanks especially to Alison and Paul

Many thanks to Hanna and the team for helping us through this difficult time. All arrangement were perfect and all as planned. Hanna connected us to the carriage master and his beautiful horses which seamlessly interfaced with the hearse. She also arranged the celebrant Sue who's care and attention of the detail of the funeral were second to none. The funeral director was gentle kind and sympathetic during the whole proceedings.

Camps recently arranged my Mum's funeral and all the staff I dealt with were caring, sensitive and professional. Alison went out of her way to help to help me sort things out and nothing was too much trouble. The celebrant was great and through taking the time to talk to me and my sister, he really captured who our Mum was. He was also very supportive on the day of the service as was the Funeral Director, who called me the day before to introduce herself. Camps made a very difficult job much easier and I feel that in spite of the current restrictions, they enabled me and my family to give my Mum a lovely send off. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Very supportive and helpful with delivery and collection of documents from home during lockdown. My main negative was associated with the way the Funeral Notice was published. Vital information was omitted when posted such as times and location of the funeral leading to confusion over who was invited to attend. This was visible to me, but not fellow mourners. This was apparently due to interpretation of Covid restrictions but had not been divulged to me at any time.
Otherwise, the service went well and Joan was on hand to manage the procedures.

Camp Hopson arranged our father's funeral and when our mother passed away 6 weeks later, we had no hesitation in contacting them again to look after her. Hannah provided a professional and friendly service guiding us through the process and answering our many questions. Matt led the team on the day of both funerals and helped us through difficult days compassionately.

We would not hesitate to recommend them. Special thanks must go to Hannah for looking after all of us so well.
Response from Camp Hopson Funeral Directors

Camp Hopsons have recently taken care of my brother's funeral and as family would like to thank everyone at Camp's for their care, efficiency and planning at such a dreadful time.
We cannot recommend Camp Hopson's enough.

Jane was extremely supportive and is a credit to Camps.

Handled with such care, tailored to my families needs.

I was recommended to use Camp Hopson funeral care by another member of my family who had recently suffered a loss and I shall be doing the same should this service be required by anyone I know.

Thank you for your time, your patience and your kindness.

Kindest regards,

Mary

Friendly and professional from the beginning to the end. All options were explained to us and talked through sensitively. We were kept informed at all stages and even phoned just before the service to explain who would be looking after us. The celebrant that they suggested was fantastic and really captured my mums life and spirit. I also had a call to let me know that the ashes were ready for collection but was under no time pressure to pick them up. I would highly recommend Camp Hopsons.

Excellent help from the staff. We always felt thankful of the care & dignity taken for our father. The funeral day went smoothly & we were comforted by the professionalism of the funeral director.
The only problem we had was that it was a month between our fathers death and the funeral at West Berkshire Crematorium. We were willing to have the funeral at any time and did not need funeral cars
