Very sensitive care taken when my husband was taken from home to the funeral home. We were visited at home to discuss arrangements, and all our questions were answered, and all our requests were met.
A few hiccups over wording for the initial address, and alterations to the order of Service were speedily dealt with, with courtesy and sensitivity.
We never felt rushed , even though time was limited.
Everyone present remarked it went well

The service was lovely and went without fault. The administrative side left much to be desired. When booking Mum's funeral I offered to pay there and then. I was told there was no rush and we could wait until probate was granted. When we did get the invoice we had to query the amount as we were charged £250 for something that hadn't been done. One month after the funeral we received a terse letter stating that as we hadn't settled our account we would start having to pay interest at 8%. To make matters worse we had already settled the bill in full by this time. It would have been nice to be informed at the time that we had just over one month to pay, we were lucky in the respect that we had the funds available, but others may not be in that situation and this would just add to their grief.

The staff in the office and on the days of the funerals were very professional, attentive and considerate for both of my parent's funerals. The best recommendation is that after my dad's funeral there was no hesitation in contacting Deweys when mum passed away 11 months later.
Response from Kenneth Dewey & Sons Funeral Directors
I am pleased to hear that you found our staff to be professional and respectful. Our quality of care is something we are proud of and we know what a difference it makes to the families in their time of need.

I found Kenneth Dewey & Sons to provide a good quality service at a reasonable price. Tracey was always contactable and helpful and the celebrant they arranged was also great.

It was an excellent experience at a very upsetting time. The lady who looked after us and also my late mum when she was in the chapel of rest, was a very nice person and the organisation of my mum's funeral was very well done. Everything went off very well, the gentlemen were on time with my mum and we get to the church with time to spare. The flowers were beautifully done and the service was very uplifting.
Response from Kenneth Dewey & Sons Funeral Directors
We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after. Your family continues to be in our thoughts and we are honoured to have been able to give you the service you needed.
Rating 5.0
Everybody I spoke to about the arrangements were very thoughtful and understanding, allowing me the time I needed to consider things that I had never needed to think about until that point. At such a difficult time for me, it was comforting to have such support. The whole service was conducted in a dignified fashion and I never felt rushed.
Response from Kenneth Dewey & Sons Funeral Directors

Excellent service. I was lead through the process beautifully by Steve, reassuring me that what I wanted would be honoured. They organised the most wonderful celebrant, Mike , who made my tribute words come alive. On the day of the funeral Bill gently guided me and my family through the day. All the staff were suitably presented, all were extremely respectful.

I would not fail to recommend their services to any recently bereaved family, they reduced much of the stress of organising the funeral of a loved one.
