At a very difficult time, our family needed to choose a funeral directors. We didn’t have any local knowledge and we were extremely concerned that we had to make our choice from a list of names provided.
We chose Zealleys to care for our Mum. From the very first contact we felt reassured with the care and professionalism Mum and our family were all given. The whole process was handled with sensitivity and kindness by Gene and his colleagues. When making the funeral arrangements, it’s hard to put your thoughts in order, we were guided through every step with compassion, patience and understanding. Nothing was missed, the attention to detail was outstanding.
I don’t usually write reviews, I wanted to help another family trying to make their choice, Zealleys went far beyond our expectations, we chose well.

All the family agreed that Gene was particularly kind and caring, he couldn't do enough for us all at such a sad time of our lives. He was methodical in taking us through all our options and arranged for the minister to conduct the proceedings on the day. He too was a perfect choice and came to visit us in our home to go through mum's life story in order to 'get to know her' before we all said our goodbyes. The Zealleys team on the day were very professional and guided us through the service with ease. Even though mum had pre arranged her funeral with Zealleys, there were still a few decisions to be made and several members of the family have said they would be visiting Gene in the coming months to arrange their own 'departure'.
