    I can recommend John Meynell, Funeral Directors, Darlington as excellent. Andrew recently helped me through a sad time when I lost my mum but he couldn't have been better. Thoughtful and respectful whilst being extremely professional all at the same time. I thank him and John Meynell in general for such good care.

    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.
