Bracher Brothers gave me great service from my first phone call to inform them of my sister's death and the fact she had purchased a Dignity Funeral Plan. I was expecting to be beset with difficulties but Bracher's took away all the hassle. I am sure my sister would be very pleased that her plan was delivered by such sympathetic and competent funeral directors. In fact I am going to buy funeral plans with Bracher Brothers for my husband and myself.
Response from Bracher Brothers Funeral Directors
We are incredibly grateful that you took the time to leave us this review. It is good to know that we managed to make the day run as smoothly as possible for you and that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service.

I was really impressed by the quality of care I received. From our first meeting things were made as easy for me as possible - and I was in a very bad state. The funeral was arranged quickly and efficiently. The celebrant suggested, Derren, was warm, caring and very empathetic.
The funeral itself was beautiful. I was determined to give a Eulogy to my mum and Derren got me through it..

I can’t recommend Braecher brothers highly enough.

Everything about the funeral was well thought out. It was a memorable day and the people attending found it a fitting farewell to my mum. My dad was delighted with the order of service, however I found the formats limited in relation to my mum's personality. The process was very well explained and sympathetically. No-one else knew, but the music chosen at the start of the ceremony was not the right version. So perhaps checking the music clips would have avoided this. But this is a minor quibble in this case. The picture for the coffin was a nice unexpected touch, but as she was a photographer and most of the people attending were photographers I could not use it due to the low resolution of the print quality. Again I liked the idea of the condolence book - but no-one used it. I have already recommended the Dignity funeral plan to two other people. Many thanks.

Contacting a Funeral Director is not something we do very often and when we do it is because we have lost a dear and treasured family member. My father had already paid for a funeral plan so he had already made some of the decisions which was a great help. The staff at Bracher Brothers were compassionate and understanding, they talked us through the funeral process making sure we understood and were happy with the arrangements. I have never thought much about the occupation of a funeral director which must be very difficult sometimes when you are arranging funerals for families who have just lost their dearest relative. We found Bracher Brothers offered an excellent service at a time when the family is mourning a loved one.
