Unfortunately I have had to arrange several funerals parents, in-laws etc and the service that Laura gave stood out head and shoulders above others.

Her personality is such that I felt at ease from the first time I met her. Her professionalism and attention to detail gave me great confidence in believing that everything would run smoothly on the day, and it did. Any questions were dealt with promptly and she certainly goes the extra mile for her clients.

She is an asset to W.Williams of Little Sutton.

Your team, in particular Laura Southby made everything that much easier during this difficult time. Laura was an absolute pleasure to work with, always available for a chat and brought some much needed comfort to everyone, both in the planning of the funeral, on the day and since.

On behalf of all of our family, we'd like to thank Laura and her team for their diligence, compassion and hard work.

My family have used W.Williams and Son as our local go to Funeral Directors for many decades based on their family orientated service and attention to detail. The staff at Little Sutton are excellent from the initial contact to arrange the funeral to the Service itself and follow up contact. No request was too onerous in particular arranging visits to the Chapel of Rest for a several family members. They made a very diificult time more bearable. Thank you.

I contacted W.Williams & Son Funeral Directors early on a Saturday morning following the death of my father. I was in somewhat of a state. The lady who answered the call, on their 24 hour service was calm, kind and understanding. From this point onwards, I knew that I had chosen the right company to look after dad. They led my sister and I through the various tasks and processes that are required following the death of a loved one. They were supportive and understanding, throughout the whole process and on the day of dads service. They have also made it very clear they are there if we need them moving forward. Every penny paid for their services was money well spent. If I had to use them again, which I hope I don't for a while, I would in a heartbeat. A huge thank you to the team.
