This was a particuarly tragic death and we needed a lot of handholding during the process. Bill, Emma & Yvonne plus the whole of the rest of their team were wonderful in every way possible - there was nothing else they could have possibly done for us. They were kind, gentle and so helpful about everything and went out of their way to fit in with us. They were there for us in every way possible and we will be eternally grateful to them.

I have used Kenneth Dewey in the past which is why I had no hesitation in doing so on this occasion.
From walking in the door of the Hale Branch I was treated with the utmost kindness and understanding by Yvonne and Emma and the rest of the team - I'm sorry that I cannot remember the names.
They talked me through the whole process with great patience at what is obviously a very difficult time.
I was allowed to visit my late wife whenever I wished which was very helpful to me personally.
I had arranged a floral coffin for my wife as she loved flowers and nature. At one point Yvonne said there was a slight problem with the order to which I asked "is there a plan B" the reply from Yvonne was "there is no plan B because we will get it no matter what"
Dewey's also arranged the Celebrant and Susan couldn't have been nicer.
There was just nothing you could complain about no matter how much you might try.
A brilliant, prefessional company from start to finish. WELL DONE!

Excellent service from all the team at Dewey’s (Hale).
Everything was sensitively handled to make sure my Mother was given a well organised, dignified and respectful celebration of her life. Communication at all times was excellent and nothing was too much trouble.
Dealing with the same Director on each occasion made the process so easy and his support throughout has been exemplary. Thank you.
Highly recommended.

During this very sad time for myself and all my family, Eve and all the team at Kenneth Dewey & Sons made, not only all the arrangements as easy as possible for us. Their assistance with visiting the Chapel of Rest during the weekend and then most importantly the funeral day itself, which ran with such precision and respectability. My Mum would have be proud of the send off that we were able to organise for her and then carry out on the day, all with the help of Eve and the team at Kenneth Dewey & Sons Funeral Directors. Thank you very much.

Rating 5.0
My father's passing was 'rapid' upon hospitalisation and his end stage dementia. A man well organised, he had a prepaid funeral plan and had identified Kenneth Dewey & Sons on his policy. His wish was to be cremated. From the start, Dewey & Sons showed respect, compassion and care, not only to the family but to my father. This empathy was much appreciated, as I value these behaviours. Flexibility was shown when I had to advise the death was being investigated, so I did not have a release date from the hospital. We identified a provisional date with the crematorium and, as my father did not want a religious memorial, an officiant was identified. The officiant could not have been more ideal. With no experience of planning a funeral, I had questions and I felt at ease asking these questions and appreciated quick response. On the day of the funeral, everything went smoothly. My mother is 91 with poor mobility. The limo driver took care getting her into and out of the car. Again, appreciated and noted. It is an odd thing to say that a funeral was lovely but it was. Everything went to plan, meaning things had been well planned ahead of the day. On the day, we were guided. The weather was fine and my family, who are from Kent and Scotland, managed to get petrol. I thank the team again for all the support and guidance. My father would have been very pleased.
Response from Kenneth Dewey & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. 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. Your kind words mean a great deal to the team who always work very hard to deliver great care.
Rating 5.0
Very professional staff, they behaved impeccably throughout and with great dignity. Before the funeral there was lots of contact to ensure that our preferences and wishes were noted and everything was explained to us. We particularly liked that they took care of arranging for us to have a celebrant and flowers from a local florist. On the day, the service passed perfectly.

From start to finish we were advised of everything & helped through the process with care.
We were advised of cost alternatives & all the special things my wife had asked for was dealt with correctly & with care.
You only get one chance with a funeral to get it right & I could not fault the service we were given. From Emma & Bill thank you.

We were so pleased with the service provided by Kenneth Dewey & Sons Funeral Directors for my Aunt's funeral. These are such difficult times but everything was carried out so professionally and without any problems. All the staff were courteous and kind, the cars were immaculate and the Order of Service printed to a very high quality. Several relatives and friends who would have liked to attend but were unable due to distance and lock-down found the 'virtual' service really successful. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.

We were very happy with the service on the day, and our celebrant Mike Haygarth gave a lovely heart felt service. Felt we had to loose a star as some information came a little late (caused by covid) but overall all the staff involved were very helpful and understanding. Thankyou to your staff for helping us through a difficult time.
