Reviews for Earl of Plymouth Funeral Directors in Plymouth
The celebrant they put us in contact with was absolutely fantastic and put a perfect service together.
My 14 year old grandson wanted to help carry her coffin, I expressed my concerns with a staff member, he is a big boy for his age but I wasn’t sure if he would be able to do it, the staff watched his every move leaving me to get through this sad time, he did do it but to have the assurance that they would keep an eye on him was a huge relief.
I would like to thank all the staff at Earl of Plymouth, they were sympathetic, compassionate, showed great empathy, they even lightened the mood when I was haunted at the thought of what my Mum had on her feet and they were changed immediately that I took in replacement socks. They are very professional and in my opinion you won’t find a better funeral director. Thank you for making such a hard time bearable.
David and Marie C, Plymouth.
Couldn't fault the service at.
Thank you for your kindness and professionalism during this sad time.
From the first telephone call we were dealt with with great courtesy. From your office staff to all staff on the day including the Limo driver, we couldn’t have asked for more.
