Right from the start I received a warm, friendly and familiar welcome. I was given the opportunity to express my ideas and concerns regarding the most suitable service for my grandad. Their experience and advice helped me shape and define the ceremony, and my somewhat unusual requests were taken on board in a very accommodating fashion. The staff members always showed their utmost respect for my situation, with hankies, hugs and a cup of tea always at hand when most needed. Despite my grandad having passed away I was always made to feel that he was still amongst us and deserved to be treated with utmost care and respect. I was recommended a very suitable celebrant who delivered the service with dignity, kindness and humour in all the right places. It was reassuring to welcome the Funeral Director's crew at the service. The correspondence and communication throughout the planning and execution of service were excellent. I would definitely use R Davies & Son again - hopefully though, for all involved, not too soon.

Hi just a quick thank you from Amelia Miller's family for the support/guidance received by your staff. In particular Lesley Moran and Michael were great, nothing was too much of an issue and the day went really well or at least as we could have expected under the circumstances. The family have been looked after by yourselves before and in particular Lesley, so please pass on our regards.

Leslie was such a lovely and helpful lady. She made us all feel well looked after, as if she was one of the family, and nothing was too much trouble. Michael was the epitome of professionalism as he took the lead for the actual funeral service and our celebrant, Russel, who was recommended to us by Leslie, was such a lovely man and put our thoughts of our dad into words which were so poignant and funny at the same time. Overall, a complete and wonderful service.... thank you all so much xx
