Cant recommend Cooks enough. They were compassionate and helpful and guided us through a very difficult time in our lives. They made the whole process of arranging dads funeral much easier and on the day itself they were a great comfort to us.

We have used Cooks for the funeral of my mother in law, they were very kind,efficient, and really easy to deal with at a difficult time. We had a Dignity funeral plan in place for my mother in law which also made things so much easier and I would recommend people thinking about these plans especially as mum in law was in care it made the whole situation so much easier.
We live a distance away from Chesham but Cooks were very good and dealt with all the paperwork for us without us needing to travel to Chesham to handle things.
Overall we were pleased with the funeral service and the celebrant they found for us, Katie was always kind and considerate when dealing with us as were all the staff we dealt with.

Everything went well from start to finish, by phone, e-mail and face to face, not helped by me living almost 100 miles away. My wife's wishes were carried out, and she is now reunited with her parents. I thank everyone at Cook's for their help and support!

We used Cooks in Chesham 10 years ago for my late Father in laws funeral, so sadly when my mother in law passed away we decided straight away to use them again. 10 years on and we still got 100% from them. They were there helping us through a difficult time for all the family.
They went above and beyond by raven finding the vicar that did the funeral 10years ago.
Many thanks
