    Sadly, we have had to use the services of Reddish Funeral Services twice in six months. In our first experience, we had never experienced a bereavement before and were completely unsure of what needed to be done. Our Funeral Arranger and the supporting team at Reddish Funeral Directors were absolutely wonderful. They guided us through the whole process with gentle care and empathy, really going the extra mile to help us achieve our wishes for our Dad. We were really touched by their kindness. So much so, that when we unexpectedly suffered another family bereavement, without question, we went straight back to Reddish Funeral Directors, where we received the same excellent care once again.
    The team are professional, efficient and keep you informed at every step of the process. But what counts almost more than this professionalism, is the care, consideration, respect and empathy they show both to you and your loved one at such a devastating time.

    Excellent service from the gentleman at the Reddish branch. Polite, smart, professional and courteous. Extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Listened to what I wanted and gave relevant advice. Kept me up to date at all stages. An awful situation made so much easier by his empathetic manner and demeanour. Thank you so much to all concerned.
