It felt a bit corporate at times, to be expected I guess, being part of a big organisation.
Some comments made to us whilst arranging the funeral were a little insensitive and not very considerate.

After losing someone it’s fair to say that the last thing you feel able to do, is to make lots of decisions for the funeral. Jennie guided us through everything with care and compassion and made the whole process much easier than we expected. It did not feel like a rehearsed job that she was doing , It felt as though she really did care and that it was important to her that we got things right for my grandmother. Thank-you for making a very difficult time much easier.
Response from W Cornford & Son Funeral Directors
I am glad you chose W Cornford & Son Funeral Directors to take care of your Grandmother and that all of your wishes and requirements were carried out by the team as you had requested.

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.
