I found the staff at Guyans very helpful, empathic, friendly yet sensitive and efficient in helping me arrange the funeral for my Mum. All my requests were accommodated and they also found a very nice person to be the celebrant which made such a difference at the funeral service. I can recomend the service they offer.

From the initial meeting both Lynsey and Kim (Keynsham branch) were extremely helpful, listened to our wishes and answered our questions with empathy and sensitivity. Kim done an amazing job with the order of service, despite IT challenges. I have not had to organise a funeral before, the service provided by L J Guyan certainly made this first time experience, whist also grieving as less stressful, upsetting as possible. Just to add on the day of my dad's funeral the service you provided was excellent - thank you.

Delighted with service at a stressful time. I was worried about how to plan etc but Fillipa and the team put my mind at rest. Helping me with advice and suggesting a great celebrant Claire. The day went smoothly and they respected my wishes i.e. I did not want Mum carried in. They stayed with me and respectfully asked if it was ok for them to leave at the end with I liked. Mum looked lovely with her make up just right and my daughter requested a thumb print which I said I doubted she would’ve been allowed but Fillipa arranged this with her. Thank you for making Mum’s farewell special.

I used Guyans almost 8 years ago when my husband passed away and I was extremely pleased with the way everything had been handled ,so I didn’t hesitate to use them again.
From the minute you make the initial appointment until the final one at the end of the service everything was handled perfectly. Every question and every request was given the upmost respect.
Even though the day of the funeral is so sad ,we were put at ease and things were explained to us at every stage. Staff and hearse impeccable.

We couldn’t have asked for more especially during such a difficult time not only with losing dad but also because we are amidst a pandemic. The staff were all very professional and caring, all our wishes were carried out and help was given when needed. We would definitely recommend this company for anyone who requires this service. Many thanks for all you have done for our family.
