    although I am a casual employee of Dignity I was able to see the professional manner in which the branch handled my fathers funeral, NOTHING was too much trouble, and on the day of the funeral I was able to drive the hearse and I asked beforehand if that was possible and I also wanted to drive my father into St.Austell and past where he started his farming life, I was told of course it is alright. We then drove to our local crematorium where other members of staff were waiting and carried my father into the chapel. From start to finish the funeral and preparation before was of the highest standard.

    Very professional throughout.
    Kept informed of every stage.
    Quick to answer any questions I had.
    I also thought it was a very nice touch to be telephoned to be informed that my brother had been collected from the hospital and was in the care of your team. Very thoughtful.
