Gene was both very considerate and helpful.
Response from Zealley Funeral Directors
It is always good to hear that individual members of our team have provided a service to you to the best of their ability.
Rating 5.0
I found Zealley's very very very helpful from the first phone call, through to the day and even a week after! They answered every question in a way that it made easy to understand and made suggestions that I would never have thought off! On such an emotional day, everything went really smoothly, this could only happen with everything that was put in place with the help of Gene at Zealley's. Couldn't recommend Zealley's HIGHLY enough for your funeral arrangements.
Response from Zealley Funeral Directors

Nothing was too much trouble and we were kept informed of progress at all times.
Attention to detail was excellent.
Help was given when the cause of death certificate was delayed by the GP.
G is an excellent funeral director.
The funeral cars were spotless, flowers superb and the printed order of service the best I have seen.
Further arrangements were made for the ashes to be taken to Cornwall and arrangements for the final laying to rest were also made.
The funeral celebrant was also excellent.
Overall we would rate all aspects as excellent and our mother would have been very pleased indeed with every part.
Thank you for all your help and work that made a difficult time that bit easier.
Highly recommended.

I have nothing but praise for the way Glenn handled our funeral requirements. A truly professional service. Respect, integrity, and attention to detail. All especially appreciated amidst the additional challenges of the covid pandemic when expectations of the wished-for funeral have had to be compromised. Highly recommended.

Rating 5.0
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.
Response from Zealley Funeral Directors

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'.
