It was during unusual times, Covid19 restrictions, that we had to call on the services of David Silvey & Son (Part of the Dignity with Distinction group)but we cannot speak highly enough of them.
The attention to detail was second to none, they were so apologetic about not being able to offer their normal high standard of care (such as not being able to embalm my late mother or dress her for her final journey, all due to Covid19 restrictions imposed by HM Government) yet they were able to keep us informed of each and every step towards the funeral and helped to arrange for mum's obituary be placed in the local paper, which brought many nice comments on local Facebook groups as mum was a well known and respected Teacher, and liaised with the burial site Mum had decided on and with the Minister who wanted to conduct the Funeral. All of which took the pressure of the Family during the weeks after Mum's passing.

I was looked after by the Office staff from the very first meeting and, although it was a difficult time for me, I felt that a lot of weight was taken off my mind by their kind and helpful attitude. They made all arrangements for the crematorium and, on the day, everything went extremely smoothly. I couldn't fault their kind and thoughtful attitudes.
