    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.

    We were very pleased with the standard of sevice provided by J Hylton and Sons.
    The staff were sensitive to our needs and were attentive without being intrusive.
    They went out of their way to make the process of arranging a funeral very straightforward and hassle free.
    We live 40 miles away from the funeral parlour and Hylton's staff managed to arrange all the necessary consultations to coincide with each other, so we only had to attend once.
    We had a call on the day before the funeral to ensure everything was as it should be and there had been no last minute changes.
    On the day of the funeral we were guided through the process by the staff and all went as planned.
    The funeral was followed a couple of days later by a courtesy call, just checking that everything had gone as well as could be expected.
    We commented afterwards that we were impressed by how straightforward the funeral process had been and how impressed we were by the staff at Hylton's.
    I would recommend this company's services.

    Everybody was so nice and guided me through every step of my mother’s funeral, from all the organising with Sarah Jane, who was very helpful, and caring of my son being present, down to Sandra supporting me in the chapel of rest, plus ringing me to check to see how I was doing. They are a fantastic team and I can’t thank them enough.

    As a family we have used the service of J Hylton & Sons for many years. The service is always first class with professionalism and compassion.
    From start to finish every aspect is dealt with, with sensitivity and dignity.
    Sandra offers outstanding service at all stages and takes much of the stress and strain out of what is already an upsetting situation.
    Recently, Neil continued to uphold the name of the business and handled the funeral with the upmost respect
