Cyril H Lovegrove, I would recommend them to everyone. Caring and understanding and so kind. Nothing was rushed and the funeral went so smoothly. Most wonderful surprise was when we were dropped off for mum's wake the driver gave us a framed photo of mum and a vase of flowers. I found that very touching. Well done all of you a wonderful company and caring staff.

All of the staff from Mary at the first meeting through to the people at the actual service were so warm, friendly but really respectful and it made it seem that our funeral really mattered and wasn’t just a job for them. We were all really grateful for the way it was conducted. Thank you.

Cyril H. Lovegrove Ltd. lifted a considerable weight from my shoulders with their caring, dignified professionalism, from Mary in the office to Kevin and his team who undertook the funeral itself. Everything was conducted without rush, care taken over every detail to ensure wishes in the Dignity funeral plan were carried out, and all with great sympathy and understanding. No matter how busy Mary was she always had time for us, and everything went like clockwork on the day. The little touches of a framed photograph of my wife and a little glass vase of flowers after the funeral service were totally unexpected and all added to the general caring ambience of the whole event. If a funeral can be wonderful, then my wife's was wonderful, and although devastatingly sad, Lovegroves helped to make it bearable. Thank you.

Mary was absolutely brilliant, explained everything, what would happen on the day, answered all my questions, helped out when I was dithering and couldn’t decide, and always made me feel she cared.
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.
