From the family we would like to thank all the staff that were involved with the funeral of our late stepdad. The presentation of the cars and the staff were really smart. All of the staff were very nice, and we felt that due to us saying our final goodbye to our stepdad, we still felt at ease and I think this is due to the staff knowing how to care and respect and take pride in their line of work. This company would be recommended to others if we were in a position to be talking about funeral directors at anytime. Thank-you.

From the time that we had our first appointment with Jennie, I knew we were in very capable and caring hands. She explained all of the options open to us, taking the time to make sure we fully understood everything from the order of service, flowers, cars and any other choices that required a decision. We had decided to use a celebrant to conduct the service and the lady that Jennie recommended was absolutely excellent, phoning when she said she would, spending a very long time with me, talking about my late mum and on the day of the funeral spoke from the heart as if she knew my mum personally. The driver who took us to the crematorium was charming and courteous, as was the funeral director. Cannot recommend Cornford & Son highly enough.

Friendly and efficient service. Excellent organisational skills from Jennie and the team enabled us to hold the funeral within the short timescale we requested. Jennie helped us put together exactly the type of service that our Dad would have wanted, including recommending an excellent Celebrant. There was no pressure whatsoever to purchase additional items and services.

Your staff were helpful and courteous throughout the whole process of the funeral arrangement. The funeral was smooth and timely and again the funeral director and attendants were thoughtful and on hand to assist when needed. Overall the service provided was excellent which is a reflection on the staff.
