From day 1 the service we received was excellent. Even taking into account covid restrictions everything was dealt with professionally and with compassion and kindness. We couldn't have asked for more. It was such a difficult time for us, but was made easier to deal with by their helpfulness

Absolutely perfect. Arrangements and attention to detail could not have been better! I cannot thank them enough thank them enough for making this a perfect way for celebrating my wife’s life despite the circumstances.Equally the celebrant was so well prepared, took the wishes of our family into consideration and led the service in a friendly, sympathetic and dignified manner which was all we could have asked for.
The fact that the service was also webcast meant that so many others who could not be there because of Covid restrictions were able to be there with us and participate.

From the first phone all the staff I spoke to were courteous, friendly, and considerate.

All the options and covid restrictions were carefully explained and all my questions were answered clearly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

On the day of the funeral all went very smoothly.

All in all, a very good service.

My late mother had taken out a funeral plan before she passed. At first I was a little apprehensive about this due to not getting to choose myself which funeral director took care of the arrangements, however, Relph’s soon put me at ease and did the running around so that I didn’t have to.
On the day of the funeral there were road closures due to a big RTA, despite this, they managed to get us all to the service on time and still with utmost care and dignity.
