Having recently used the services of Chas Widdowson I would like to say that I found their services to be excellent. They succeeded in making the unbearable bearable. There was no hard sell and no pushing of extras that were not required. We chose the simple funeral for my dad and it suited our needs perfectly. The staff made you feel that you were being looked after. I particularly liked the telephone call on the eve of the funeral to make sure we were happy with the arrangements and to clear up any questions we had. The celebrant we chose did a wonderful job and having met her only twice we still felt we knew her on the day.
