Reviews of Cyril H Lovegrove Funeral Directors, Tilehurst
Mary took time to understand our needs and requirements which all made for a stress free time for both myself and my sister.
we would strongly recommend Cyril H LOVEGROVE TO ANY OF MY FRIENDS IN THE FUTURE
The family were very happy with all the arrangements on that occasion.
When my Mother died recently,the family decided once again to employ Cyril H.Lovegrove for the arrangements.
Once again,we were dealt with in a professional and understanding manner and as before, we were very pleased with the arrangements.
Everyone in the firm was very good, especially Mary O'Sullivan at Tilehurst.
I do think Mary needs an assistant, as people were popping in with clothes and questions the telephone upstairs was ringing constantly and to maintain your excellent service, with people who are grieving one person can only do so much, even though it was done to a high standard.
The team helped us through the day and gave us plenty of time after the others had left to say our private goodbyes.
Suggestion were made and all went to plan on the funeral day.
The photo of Dad and flower arrangement we received afterwards was a lovely gesture
and much appreciated.
