This was the first funeral I've ever had to organise and I was very anxious about the whole process.
From my very first appointment with Chantel all my worries and anxieties disappeared instantly.
Yeatmans helped me plan the whole funeral giving me multiple choices to choose from,they were understanding and very kind and thoughtful regarding our needs.to the last detail.
They were there for me all the way to the end.
Thank you for taking away all the stress and anxiety during this difficult time.
Kind Regards

From the moment they were notified to when we left after the funeral both Dignity and the funeral director (Yeatman of Southborne) were absolutely amazing. The director Leah was incredibly compassionate and absolutely nothing was too much trouble.
Dad would have been delighted with the treatment he received and the service was simply perfect.

My late Uncle Ray couldn't have had a better send off!! The professionalism of the team led by Leah Hardy was exceptional. The whole day ran smoothly and everything that was asked for was fulfilled. I have already recommended Yeatmans to a colleague and would highly recommend to anybody who has the misfortune to have to arrange a funeral. Leah was supportive and couldn't have done more for me and the family. The Celebrant Steven is also to be thanked from the bottom of our hearts. He spoke as though he knew Raymond personally which gave us great comfort. Thank you once again for your professionalism and obvious support and empathy. 5 star service.
