We recently used Earl Of Plymouth to arrange the funeral service of our very dear friend, from start to finish we received excellent service from the initial meeting, the minister who conducted the service on the day of the funeral was also very good and ensured the service we had agreed was carried out as per our wishes. The Funeral Director, Matthew provided a first class service to us and we found him and all the staff at Earl of Plymouth very professional. The service was an emotional one for us all and we were pleased with how it all went and would highly recommend and used this company again. Thank you to all.

The service I received at Earls of Plymouth was many things:- Respectful, caring, supportive, helpful in every aspect and considerate. I could not have wished for better service in any way whatsoever. Obviously there were several members of Earls that were involved and I would like to thank each and every one of them for their support, but my deepest thanks go to to Matt who was with me every step of the way. Thank you Matt, thank you all.


Kind Regards
