Sadly we have had to use Hyltons 4 times in the last 5 years for the funeral arrangements of our parents.
Two of these funerals took place under Covid restrictions.
On each occasion we have had extremely good service. The staff are always courteous, understanding and professional, helping to make a very difficult time much easier.

J Hylton and Sons helped us through our final farewell to our Mother with sympathy, courtesy and proffesionalism. They made the process of making the arrangements straightforward and were always there to help through the whole process. On the day of the funeral everything was carried out as we had asked for. Some of the mourners commented on how beautiful they thought the service was. Thank you to all staff from J hyltons who helped us through this sad time.

First class from start to finish.
The help we received in setting up my Mums funeral, through the event itself and the follow on has been second to none. I can only thank the excellent team at J Hylton & Sons - including Sandra who arranged everything for us and the team of gentlemen who were there on the day - for their kindness and sensitivity.

Well done and many thanks.
