I couldn't fault the service we received from Carol and the team at Serenity. Serenity dealt with both my father's funeral and five years later, my mother's. I'd never arranged a funeral before but each step of the process was explained, in a very sensitive and thoughtful manner. Lesley, the celebrant who conducted both funerals, was very professional and understanding. The process was seamless for both funerals.

Serenity conducted my fathers funeral with dignity and the arrangements were made easily and with sincerity. My father had already purchased a funeral plan but hadn't specified any requirements so we were unsure as to what we should do, although we had certain things in mind that we would like. The member of staff we met was very welcoming and guided us through the process with ease. She was gentle, but don't be fooled, she knew what she was doing. We had a church service (which was additional to the plan) followed by a crematorium service. The member of staff listen to our requests and acted immediately once we'd left and things were arranged quickly and efficiently. I rang a number of times with questions which were answered straightaway. On the day I asked for no Victorian bowing to the coffin etc and the director respected our wishes although certain things were expected at the church. I can't give the 5th star as I like to keep an eye on the bill and I would have liked more updates on the cost we were incurring as we went along but this is a personal thing and I hadn't specified this at the time. Thank you Serenity for such a positive experience.

I was completely satisfied with the service provided. All the staff were very helpful and I felt I could ring at any time, even if it was just a small query. Everything was carried out with dignity.
I have no adverse comments and should like to thank everyone for their efficiency and professionalism.

Definitely a 5 star rating - would only let me clip all of them!

Rating 5.0
The people at Serenity and the sympathetic service we received were beyond reproach. I have never had to arrange a funeral before and as this was for my mother, you can imagine how daunting this task was, but from the minute Carol greeted me and my father at the door to the conclusion of the service and the collecting of my mothers ashes, we were treated with kindness, respect, dignity and compassion. I cannot thank the all the people involved enough and would whole heartedly recommend Serenity funeral directors to any one needing help and advice on arranging a funeral at what is always a very difficult time.

Once again many thanks
