    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
