Geoff and his staff were very friendly, caring and extremely helpful. What is more as we live 140 miles away we were able to get all of mums funeral arrangements SG one in a few hours. Mum also had a dignity funeral plan which was followed to the letter. A very good service and would recommend them to all

Pearce’s funeral directors recently helped us with my Dads send off. I have to say that I was extremely happy with how they helped sort out some problems incurred by Dads doctor and managed to explain everything in a calm and organised way. The gentleman who arrived at the house with Dad before we set off was not only courteous and dignified but he really added to the occasion by walking down the road in front of the car for a short period. It really uplifted me at a very low point which really impressed me. He was there again at the crematorium along with the very helpful Sarah to help things progress in a respectful way. Also the pall bearers were very professional. I would definitely recommend this company in anybody’s hour of need.
