Wonderful service by all the team.
Although my late aunt had a funeral plan inplace it was nice to sit down and talk the plan through with Magaret.
She explained fully what the plan entailed and helped me decide on the extra services on offer, such as flowers,order of service stationary etc. All of which my requests were carried out to the letter.
I would like to add my thanks and gratitude to all the team for making such an emotional time in my life a more bearable experience.

We decided to use Hooley, Watson & Buckley for our mum's funeral because they had given such a good service 7 years previously for our dad. We cannot thank all the staff enough, especially Margaret for their professional, efficient but totally compassionate service that they provided from the very first phone call, right to the very last. Every detail was just perfect and our mum had the best and most beautiful send off that we could have wished for.
Thank you from all our family.

Planning a funeral is never an easy task, but on finding that my Mother had a pre-paid funeral plan with H W & B gave us a good place to start. They were very helpful and understanding and gave the necessary advice required due to Covid restrictions.
We had a face to face meeting with Helen Waller, who then kept us fully informed of all details by phone and email. It was Helen who put us in touch with the celebrant Nicola Burgess, who provided an excellent service for us, which was a great comfort to all on the day.

We had a particularly difficult time as the doctor made a mistake with Mums name. The Undertaker did all he could to sort out getting the green certificate for us, so we could register Mums death as soon as possible.
Helen went to a lot of trouble to get the music we wanted.

They were recommended by a few friends so we got in touch. They did all they could to help and we had it all sorted in one afternoon. As we did not want a fussy funeral the simple package worked well and they provided a lovely order of service based on the photos we provided.

Fantastic service. The care and attention to detail from Helen was brilliant. Josh was so caring and nice to have someone of a similar age group to talk to as I felt they understood what you were going through.
I couldn’t recommend them enough, they took the stress and worry out of a awful time.
Thankyou so much again for all your support
