I would like to say how professional Mark Hudson from the Exmouth branch is.

Mark handled the paperwork, organised the cremation from start to finish and was only a phone call away if I needed to ask any questions.

I fully recommend Crews & Sons funeral directors.

I found the funeral director at Crews and Son nothing but extremely helpful. When we went to organise the funeral he made a stressful and sad time much easier. He recommended a very nice gentleman who took the service. I was grateful for the help he gave me with organising photographs for the service. The morning of the funeral he contacted me to confirm the flowers had arrived which was very reassuring. Thank you.
Both my mother and father had organised for a ‘pre-paid’ funeral plan through dignity which seemed to make the process less complicated.
Response from Crews & Son Funeral Directors

The funeral director Mark at Crews, Exmouth was excellent throughout the whole 'process'.
Because of Covid, Christmas and the New Year things were more difficult than they would have been normally. Mark was always on hand with advice and reassurance and was also very understanding.
He did an incredible job when he prepared my Mother for viewing - this meant everything to me as it is my lasting memory of Mum and I will never forget that.
At the funeral itself, he was there every step of the way too which made all the difference. A true professional.
I had a courtesy call from him shortly after the funeral to check everything had been OK.
I also received a telephone call later from a lady (Amandeep)from Crews Bereavement team who was checking everything had been OK.She was extremely polite and professional too.
Overall,I was extremely pleased with the whole service.

Having never arranged a funeral before, I was quite anxious about dealing with my mother's recently. I was fortunate that she had already bought a funeral plan so it was all pre-paid and there were few decisions to make. Having said that, there still would have been room for difficulties, had the family not had the terrific support from Mark Hudson and his team. Everything was just perfect - he recommended a minister who was kind and understanding and a florist that produced exactly the right wreath. Everything was taken care of and we had very little to do. Everything went well on the day and I'm so grateful to Mark and his team for making a difficult time so much easier. I can't recommend them more highly. Thank you.

I felt that both my husband who was resting at Crews and myself were treated as individuals. Mark was so lovely and supportive throughout, before the funeral during the funeral and after support as well. The gentleman that drove the funeral car on the day was a real comfort to me and my two children making us feel relaxed
