Nikky and her team provided us the the professional service and advice we needed in a caring understanding manner. They were always available and ready to help ensuring our every wish was carried out with dignity and compassion. We cannot thank them enough for helping us through this difficult time.

The passing of my Mother, Joan Valerie Parker on January 18th 2023 has been very emotional. As her only relative looking after her for the last few months of her 84 years (less one day) this was incredibly challenging but equally rewarding. Upon her passing Christen visited me the following day to initiate the funeral plans. Christens' suggestion of a Lady Celebrant was perfect and Cathy Gordon was amazing both when visiting me and on the day of Mum's funeral. All I can really add is that JB&S have shown immense empathy, care, guidance and genuine interest in ensuring all arrangements were undertaken (no pun intended) to my satisfaction. I could not have wished for the day to have passed off any better and I bet Mum would agree !
My friend from Dublin attended and said to me later that day he had never seen such a professional farewell before. To Nikki in the office and Gary and his colleagues on the day, and anyone I have failed to mention they are a wonderful team.

All the way through the process we were helped and treated with kindness and gentleness - from the initial phone call to everything on the day off the funeral.
Nothing was too much trouble and everything was exactly as we wished.
Communications were excellent and very professional but personal at the same time.

I appreciated how they made the whole process so easy. Everyone treated me with kindness, care and compassion. They asked the difficult questions which you never want to think about with compassion, and thoughtfulness that it was easy to make the decisions I had to make. On the day of the funeral their support was excellent.

Such caring and professional service, we felt in the best hands, every little worry or wobble I had the ladies put me at ease, they made a sad time and a time of insecurities run so smoothly I can’t thank them enough, the Reverend was a excellent choice, he came to our home listened, and then gave a thoughtful reading, he obviously listened and even made us smile in fact laugh, it was a small funeral but thanks to the whole team at John Brierley and son, not forgetting the Gentlemen who drove the Hearse and carried the Coffin. It was a lovely send off ..

The service was excellent, the welcome and preparation of mum for the viewing was so professional and caring she looked really at peace.
Helen was very helpful and understanding especially as I poured my heart out with not only loosing my mum, a very close friend and sudden death of our dog.
Thank you the day went really smoothly and a good send off for my mum.

From the first contact, Nicki looked after myself and family so professionally and the care and understanding and more so respect she and the team showed us was amazing, the celebrant provided could not have been better, it may seem an odd thing to say but my husband had the best send off possible a day we will remember with sadness but mainly joy to remember him
