We did not know our brother had a pre paid funeral plan. However, it was so simple to set in motion all that was needed to have a celebration of our brothers life. Everyone at Yeatmans had our interests at the fore. I forgot the flowers for the hearse and Sarah was so supportive and it was sorted within a couple of hours with their help. The amazing celebrant was well selected for us. Our family appreciated her lovely approach to getting everything organised and guiding us on the next step in the process. The funeral went very well with the support of the gentleman leading the group of staff from Yeatmans. It was a glorious celebration of life.

Very friendly and supportive staff. Nothing was too much trouble, no query too small, not rushed, suggested vicar to take the service who was brilliant. Due to heavy rainfall at the graveside some of the flower heads had dropped and they collected them, as well as the flower cards so ink didnt run, and presented them the next day tied in a pretty blue bow for me to press. Very thoughtful. Cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you for making a difficult time much easier. They have also organised engraving of headstone and costs have been very reasonable.

Vicky, Sarah, Paul and all those behind the scenes were wonderful and so supportive, especially with all the changes we had to make along the way. This was the first funeral I have had too oversee and apart from the service, everything was all in place with the plan my Aunt had arranged, bless her.

The service provided by Yeatmans was perfect from our first contact. We met with the funeral director at the office and were treated with ever consideration to our requests. The date and time for the funeral was conveniently booked and we were given details for a wonderful celebrant. Staff were excellent at arranging a viewing for us at short notice so that we could say our farewells. Everything went very smoothly which is a credit to their care and professionalism. We are most grateful to all the staff.

I cannot thank Yeatmans enough for the way they helped us through the funeral of our father, especially Vicky and Ian, who if we had any questions, were only to pleased to answer and guided us through each and every step, making everything so much easier to deal with.

After the death of my father, I found Yeatmans Funeral Directors to be very professional, caring and sympathetic. John made me coffee and offered biscuits whilst he gave advice and guidance on all areas of the funeral and he provided me with as much information as possible to enable me to choose the funeral that satisfied my requirements. John also provided me with clear advice on the costs involved which proved to be very accurate when the final invoice was received.

John also recommended a celebrant who was absolutely perfect for the service I wanted.

All the staff at Yeatmans, together with the celebrant, were very helpful and supportive and provided a perfect send off for my much loved father. I am very grateful to them for their care and attention to my needs to ensure his life was celebrated with tears, laughter and much love.

Impeccable service from the team at Yeatmans. Thank you so much to everyone involved in making sure the service of my late father-in-law was carried out in a most caring & professional manor. John at Yeatmans was our main point of contact prior to the service and was extremely efficient and explained all aspects of what was needed prior to the funeral & what would happen on the day. Ian looked after us on the actual day - again with utmost professionalism - & Sophie, our celebrant, put together a fantastic synopsis of my father-in-laws life. A beautiful day. Thank you Louise & family

The staff at Yeatmans provided a first class service with a very personal touch. The fact that we could still meet face to face with them during the pandemic (whilst still observing the covid guidelines) was very much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always available to speak to us either on the phone or in person. The restrictions in place because of corona virus were sympathetically explained to us and the staff kept us informed at every step ensuring we were happy with all the arrangements. My family has used their services on a number of occasions and we had no hesitation in contacting them again to help us arrange my mother's funeral.
