The prospect of organising my husband peters funeral felt very daunting but from the first phonecall i made to dignity i was put at my ease.I chose chas widdowson and son on a recommendation from a friend and I was not disappointed with their service.Joanne the manager was very professional but also very compassionate whilst we were arranging the funeral that I knew peter would have wanted,her attention to detail was excellent and she ensured that nothing was left out and everything was exactly how I wanted it.The day of the funeral all jo and her staff were excellent and I was extremely pleased with the service that they delivered.I would also like to say that Sara Bowden-Nash the minister delivered an excellent service and I was proud of the send off she gave to peter it was first-class.I would recommended Dignity and Chas Widdowsons and sons services as they made a very difficult time easier with their professionalism and caring attitude.

The service we received from all the staff at Chas Widdowson & Son Funeral Directors was wonderful. We were dealt with compassion, empathy and understanding. Made to feel welcome too.

They listened to our families wishes for the funeral of a much loved husband, dad, grandad,brother in law and friend.
The staff went above and beyond to make this sad occasion a beautiful service.

The orders of service were of the highest quality and very well laid out.

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.
