All the staff members at John Brierleys & sons treated us with respect even though we may have come across a little querky.
They kept me informed and they were very considerate towards myself and my family's feelings regarding details that had to be changed due to circumstances which were out of their/our control.

I would like to give them a very big thank you as they helped us to provide a funeral service for my Husband which he deserved even under the covid restriction.

Thank you so very much for the excellent service and care you provided for mum’s funeral (Louisa Bellamy) nothing was too much trouble from first coming to see you up until the day of the funeral. You also did our Dad’s service 9 years ago and provided an excellent service then.

Rating 5.0
We selected Brierley & Sons for the funeral based on previous experience and we were not disappointed. The service they provide was A1 and we could not have been happier with arrangements before, on the day and afterwards. We feel that this is a company that clearly strives for total perfection in what they do, going above and beyond expectation to provide just what was requested 'and some'.

If you are looking for a funeral director that "cares" then I would recommend John Brierley & Son.
