Any family in mourning will fret about ensuring funeral arrangements go smoothly and need someone to lean on. I think that was especially true given our own circumstances having a joint funeral for both parents who we lost within a couple of weeks of each other. Our funeral arranger, Tina, ensured that everything was in place for mum & dad on the day without a hitch while our funeral director, Joe, showed compassion and understanding immediately after dads passing and flawless direction of the service itself. Harry Williams has the heartfelt thanks of the whole family.
Response from Harry Williams & Sons Funeral Directors
It means a lot to the team for our clients to be able to share their experiences with us. We know how special each person is and aim to convey this in all aspects of our work from the arrangements to the day of the service. It has been a privilege to support your family and care for your Mother and Father. We are proud of the whole team.

Both before and during the service, the staff were kind, understanding and thoughtful. Tina helped with the original arrangements and nothing was too much trouble. On the day, Kevin was always there to guide us through the day and went out of his way to ask where why Aunt's ashes would be scattered at the crematorium. The whole team made a sad event more manageable.
Response from Harry Williams & Sons Funeral Directors

Tina, from the office, was an absolute star. She guided me through the difficult process with such kindness and understanding it was made so much easier at such a sad time. Tina was patient with replying to my many questions and I felt comfortable with leaving arrangements in her capable hands. Tom, who was in charge of the funeral cars was so kind and considerate. Tom displayed the right balance of solemnity and friendliness for the occasion. I would highly recommend the services of Harry Williams & Sons.

I have nothing but praise for Harry Williams & sons funeral directors. Myself & my family were treated with respect & kindness throughout, for our mum & dads joint funeral arrangements. A sad time for us all, but made all the more easier with the professionalism & dignity of all involved. We were liaised with, under their expert guidance, but we had total control of our thought processes & what we wanted for mum & dads funeral. The choice of celebrant was a wonderful lady, helping us through this experience.

We couldn’t fault the service we received from Harry Williams. They led us through the process with professional care and attention.Nothing was too much trouble and there was always somebody at the end of the phone to give advice or reassurance. The way my father was cared for in collection was with respect and dignity,which was comforting in at a difficult time.

I was very pleased with the service we received from both the St Albans and Cambridge Dignity people in organising the funeral of my father. They helped take me through the process, and ensured we had the service that was appropriate for my father. On the day we had excellent attentive help from the director and limo drivers.
