Perfect from start to finish. Neil and the team were wonderful. Neil contacted me on a daily basis and took as much stress away from me as he possibly could. The Chapel of Rest was calm and serene and my Father looked at peace. The hearse and the limousines were very smart and clean and the drivers were superb.

All of the staff that I have had contact with were so nice and couldn't do enough to help. I would not hesitate to recommend Derek Moss Funeral Directors. They definitely gave a 5 star service.
