Reviews of our services
Thank you for making our goodbyes, memorable. 💕
On the day of the funeral, every aspect of the service was totally appropriate to the occasion and very favourably commented on by several members of the congregation.
At the cemetery, in spite of the bad weather, the formalities were smoothly carried out.
Many. many thanks for the care and efficiency that were evident in carrying out all your duties on this sad occasion.
We didn't want a religious funeral and the celebrant David who Jacky arranged for us did a perfect job. Would just like to thank all involved in my husband funeral for your caring, compassionate handling of all details of the funeral.
I would definitely recommend Ken Newcombe Funeral Services and in particular recommend Jacky for her very professional yet compassionate service.
Very professional and caring staff.
I would highly recommend Dignity to all my friends.
Thank you for taking very good care of my husband & also us as a family. You helped us to make my husbands final journey special.
Special thanks to Jamie.
