The Service from Bernard Williams & Son was faultless and professional. Richard put us at ease and was absolutely marvellous. Mum's funeral will be remembered in a nice way and her send off was lovely. Family and friends were also impressed with the service.

Excellent service throughout. All the staff we dealt with were compassionate, sensitive and thoughtful. At no time did we feel that we were under any pressure to make decisions and the advice given was genuine, met our requirements and we didn't feel as if the financial side was more important.

The total cost involved was exceptional we expected a far larger bill.

I am very pleased I went with this firm for my husbands cremation, they came quickly to collect my husbands body, and were very thoughtful and understanding in the way they did it, they explained that they have their own crematorium, I have since been told it is in a very nice area with trees around it, my husband loved trees so I was happy for him to be taken there, I would definitely use this firm again if needed

Rating 5.0
The whole of the process, from beginning to end, was handled with the utmost respect, sympathy and professionalism. The entire staff, including the celebrant were all excellent, knowing exactly when to step forward and guide, and also when to step back from the family proceedings. The service itself, barring the rain, was a fittingly pleasant way to say goodbye to my father. The modern, less formal crematorium, in its pleasant grounds, added to the peacefully unfussy day.
