Reviews of our services
After contacting them initially we found that certain departments made mistakes which caused a lot more worry and heartache which we could have done without at this troubling time.However Sarah,who looked after us worked like a trojan to iron out these difficulties enabling us to meet the cremation deadlines which we thought would never meet.
I cannot thank all the staff concerned enough,Sarah herself took the service which everyone who attended thought it was a most memorable time and was more of a celebration(she was nearly 101).
I would not hesitate in recommending A.G.Simmonds as they really knowff the meaning of Dignity.
Geoff Adams on behalf of the family of my mother Mrs Ruth Maud Adams.
Would recommend anyone to use there service. Also Sarah recommended a florist just a little way down the street which was a really nice florist the flowers were lovely. Many thanks to A G Simmonds and there team excellent service
