Reviews of our services
Nothing was too much trouble
They handled everything professionally and kept me up to date with what was happening. After the funeral they called me the next day to see.how I was feeling and if I needed any help this was a really nice touch
I would definitely recommend there service
It really felt like she had gone the extra mile for us.
A very hard time was bearable, thanks all of you.
The staff were especially great on the day of the funeral providing additional support when needed.
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.
Would strongly recomend their services. ..
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.
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.
