    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!
