I was really pleased I used dignity as from the first day I walked in the office they made me really feel at ease from the first day until my husbands funeral and the person that arranged everything was sue and believe me it was a perfect funeral I could not fault a thing even Dave that brought Den to my sons do you know he came to my home and said he would make things perfect that day and it was.And Russel gave a lovely service that my Husband would of been proud of. And Sue got to know the family came to the funeral and that made me so happy as Sue was there from the start to the end. I think that however plans the funeral should attend as that is a lovely thought. But the people at dignity are really lovely and thoughtful people
Response from R Davies & Son Funeral Directors

The level of service I received from R Davies at Bedminster, Bristol was excellent. I initially thought the task would be daunting but they led me through the whole process. I was kept in constant communication by phone calls and emails. They gave me additional information re registering the death, obtaining flowers and even suggestions for the music for the service which was extremely helpful. I found the staff very professional yet sympathetic and would certainly recommend them to other families. They were not at all "pushy" when I was making decisions and I felt comfortable dealing with them.
Response from R Davies & Son Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. The team will be very pleased to hear that their care and support made a difference to your family.

Sue and the rest of the team could not have been more helpful in meeting our wishes. Despite the difficult circumstances due to lockdown, we could not fault the preparation, arrangements on the day and follow up afterwards.

Even though we were restricted to 20 mourners on account of covid, the funeral was lovely. Small but perfectly formed on account R. Davies and the celebrant they recommended.
Response from R Davies & Son Funeral Directors

I was completing the arrangements for this prepaid funeral for a cousin who lives in Australia.
Sarah, front office, obviously has a complete knowledge of the process she is also very personable. She lead me through what needed to be done and had the added complication of having to deal with my cousin in Australia. I also had contact from Dave, one of the people with the funeral car, he kept me informed on the day - again he was very friendly and helped things go smoothly.

Overall the staff from R Davies & Son made the whole procedure go as well as it could.
