    I have nothing but praise for the people at John Meynell in Darlington. Andrew was wonderful, so kind, considerate & with such great attention to detail I didn't feel concerned at any stage. The funeral arrangements & service were conducted with dignity & respect & I would have no hesitation in recommending either Dignity or John Meynell to others

    From the very first meeting with the staff, I felt at ease with them , the funeral director was very supportive, she explained the procedures with an empathic attitude. Her support throughout has been exceptional. Since the funeral she has contacted me to offer any further support should I need it.

    From our first meeting with Grenedeen, I knew I need not have fretted and worried over mum's funeral arrangements. Her care, kindness and advice were of immense relief to me and.my family. My mum could not have had such a perfect goodbye. Her advice in choosing the celebrant was perfect. Carole, Grenedeen and her staff I cannot give them enough praise.

    My family and I cannot recommend John Meynell Funeral Directors enough. Thank you so much for making a very difficult day so lovely.
