Really attentive ,answered any questions promptly would recommend if any one was it a unfortunate circumstance
Response from R. Davies & Son Funeral Directors
It means a lot to the team for our clients to be able to share their experiences with us.
Rating 5.0
We dealt mainly with Sarah who was amazing - from the first phone call she made us feel comfortable and assured and made the process extremely easy - communication was also very good. Everything we asked for was taken care of and Dave on the day, was very professional and put the family at ease. The celebrant, Alison, was excellent and we were confident that the day would go without a hitch and it did. What was a very emotional experience turned out to be the day of celebration that we wanted, largely due to the professionalism and empathy that we received from R Davies and Son.
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. Your kind words mean a great deal to the team who always work very hard to deliver great care.
Rating 5.0
All staff that we dealt with before and on the day were exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble, in fact I would say Sarah especially went above and beyond what was expected.
On the day David and Emily drove us to the Crem and acted with great dignity and were very helpful to my Mum.
Everyone commented on the service that it was just as Dad would've liked. The Celebrant brought everything together well.
Highly recommended and made easier as funeral plan in place.
