A huge thank you to Andy and the team at Garsides in Congleton for all your efforts in arranging my fathers funeral. From initial enquiry, first meeting and arranging all the details and through to the actual day, the team were incredible. They really helped to take all stresses and pressure away during such a difficult time. Andy in particular walked us through every step in a compassionate way and was adaptable to our bespoke requests and was always on hand to answer any of our questions.
Thank you again!

I would like to thank all the staff at John Garside & Son who helped arrange my father’s funeral. In particular I’d like to thank Claire & Sandra. Claire for her supportive and patient approach while we made the arrangements, including a late date change due to a Covid case in a close family member. And Sandra, our Funeral Director on the day, who ensured the day went so well and without a hitch. Overall, a thoroughly professional and supportive service which made a difficult time as easy as possible.

John Garside and Son provided a friendly and professional service from start to finish. We took advantage of the recording of the service as some family could not attend from abroad this was really helpful and of great comfort. The office staff were professional and friendly and maintained a sense of humour throughout.

We had a funeral plan in place for my father which made the exercise easier at a time of high emotion and stress. Even so there were things to arrange and plan and the staff at both Congleton and Biddulph (Clare and Sandra) could not have been more helpful. They were with us, calmly and kindly helping us, every step of the way from our first contact on the day my father died, then with making arrangements for the service, and on the day of the funeral itself. Since then they have assisted us with matters such as the inscribing and replacing of the headstone. Nothing can take away the grief when someone dies but they can take away much of the stress and worry about the funeral arrangements. I would definitely recommend John Garside & Son and am glad that my own and my husband's funeral plans are with them.

I cannot praise John Garside & Son Funeral Directors enough for the service they have provided our family. From the beginning to the end they have made sure that they accommodated all of our needs and gone the extra mile with everything.

They make you feels comfortable, and were extremely supportive throughout.

Sandra the manager called me just to make sure I was okay - not to discuss the funeral. And I genuinely thought this was a lovely and kind thing to do, just to check we was all okay! and Claire ensured that all our needs were also met throughout.

The price was extremely competitive and went out of the way to get flowers for us that nobody else could.

From my family and myself - A huge thank you to you all!
