All of the staff that I came into contact with were outstanding, genuine, respectful and caring. They helped in every single way they could and went above all obligations they may have for me and my family and most importantly my Dad.

Unfortunately, my Dad was diagnosed with a brain tumour on the 25th September 2019 and we lost him on the 29th November 2019 at just 59. We cared for him at home and he passed in peace and love with us.

I never thought I would ever have to speak and arrange anything whilst my Dad was still alive, but as he was at home with us when the time came we knew we would need someone to call. I spoke with Rob who shares the same name as my Dad and he was amazing and so kind and caring to my situation. He even said I hope to not hear from you for years and years to come, and that, at that time was a wonderful thing for me to hear. I was advised of what I needed to do should the time come and didn't feel so alone and scared.

When the time came, we met Mark for the first time and he was an absolute gentleman, so respectful to my Dad and I knew he cared and he looked after him and I trusted him and knew my Dad would have liked him too.

Kate the lady in the office was fabulous, she was honest and answered all questions truthfully. My Dad was such an amazing character such a nice, kind and gentle soul, always happy and laughing and she helped us in giving him exactly the funeral service that he deserved. (She also has a beautiful telephone voice!).

The lady who looked after my Dad, please forgive me if I'm wrong I'm sure it was Sue, she spoke to me so kindly when I called to see how he was. She looked after my Dad and washed his hair, he loved being pampered, she went to extreme lengths to make sure he was looked after and I will never forget what you did for me, she even played the Beatles for him when she learned how much he loved music and Dad would of loved that.

I cannot thank you all enough for everything you did for us, If I could give more stars then I would, amazing team of dedicated compassionate staff. The only people I would have trusted with my beautiful Dad.

We cannot speak too highly of the wonderful service we received. It felt as though the staff were more like friends than strangers so caring and supportive they helped us all get through a very traumatic and emotional time. They ensured that we got the funeral that my father wanted. Thank you to each and every one of you Team Williams for your wonderful and caring support.

We would like to thank Andy and all his colleagues at W. Williams for their caring and professional handling of my father's funeral. From beginning to end they were supportive, helpful and approachable. We never felt rushed into making any decisions and they made a very difficult time easier to cope with. Thank you once again for your friendly, patient and expert approach.

Dignity and Williams & sons were caring and understanding at all times. Talking us through the process at every step and spending the time to explain if we needed clarification. Would recommend to anyone.
