We met with Catherine at a sad time. She made us feel at ease. Explained everything to us. Understanding of how emotional time we was dealing wi. I would highly recommend this company. It’s the third family funeral we. Have used Davis an wouldn’t hesitate to use again. On the day we met wi the men in charge. They was also very friendly helpful an understanding. We wasn’t made to rush. The day couldn’t have gone any better than it did. I would most definitely recommend these for sad times. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making dads last journey a special one. 🙏🙏

I have dreaded this moment all of my life but the inevitable happened.

All the love and personality, presence and familiarity from a loved one,gone. The idea of making any funeral arrangements at the time only filled me with even more grief, R Davies and Sons listened and I felt reassured that I was in capable hands.

R Davies supported me and the family, their personal touch was making the situation that little more manageable.

I cannot praise R Davies & Son highly enough. From the beginning of the process to the end they were professional, friendly, supportive and very kind and caring. I felt like they held my hand the whole time and made me feel that my mum's funeral was the most important thing in the world. The reverend (Hilary) that they recommended was exceptional, I felt like she had known my mum for many years.

I think that a funeral plan is a must and takes a great deal of stress out of the situation at such an emotional time.

Thank you so much.

We had originally gone to the Co op but were disappointed at their failure to book the funeral. Lin was fantastic, she was immediately welcoming and reassuring, and took a great weight off us at a stressful time. Under her management all arrangements went smoothly to plan. We gave my husband the lovely send off that he deserved.

I was really impressed by the professionalism and kindness of the team at R Davies & Son... Especially the funeral director Pete who was assigned to us. He was very sensitive and put my brother & myself at ease from the get-go, from booking all of the arrangements and answering any questions we had, to the day of the funeral where I got really upset and he knelt down in front of me and asked me if I was ok and said that he wouldn't get back up and walk away until I was settled, as he didn't want the vicar to start the service and me miss anything because I was upset. That was such a thoughtful and kind thing for him to do.

Pete also went out of his way on the Saturday morning (the day after the funeral) to go to Westerleigh Crematorium to collect Dads ashes for us, he then arranged to meet us at Canford Crematorium firs thing on the Monday morning so that we could do the scattering before my sister flew back to Canada on the Tuesday. This meant a great deal to all of us as it meant that she could be included in a really important part of Dads 'send off'.

Thank you to all at R Davies & Son who helped or were involved with Dads funeral.

Very helpful at all times. Nothing was too much trouble. Catherine liaised with me and the family very professionally and efficiently. Cathrine was extremely curtious and helpful at all times. If we had a query Catherine would very quickly assist with this and guide us to achieve a very smooth, lovely funeral for my father. This team are highly recommended.

I was very happy with the service I received. At the funeral, a lovely larger sized photograph of Mum had been placed at the front of the chapel- a nice touch and one I hadn't requested. Good flexibility - I liked that fact that I could get things done for myself (e.g. order of service) or ask the undertaker to get it done. The person who led the service was excellent.

Excellent service in every way. The staff were courteous and Pete excelled in giving us all the information we required. He helped us with our every enquiry and on the day of my brother's funeral he and all of the attendants from the funeral directors helped to make a sad event very special.
