From the minute we were visited at home we felt cared for, we were treated with the utmost respect. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt they would have literally tried their hardest to make sure every wish we had was taken care of. Very efficient yet dignified and respectful.

I felt that Michael Walsh Funeral Directors gave a first class service from start to finish. All of the staff were caring and empathetic with our family and guided us in the process by keeping in contact. Both of my parents funerals were what they would have wanted with little extra caring touches. Definitely which I would have myself in the future. G Weston and family, Stoke, Staffs
