The service that was provided by Hinkley for the funeral of my Father was both professional and personal. Late 2020 was not easy with the Covid restrictions, yet the funeral arrangements and service was exactly what we hoped for. Thank You.

We found the service from Hinkley's second to none. Especially due to the current covid pandemic, where services are hindered because of government guidelines. We felt supported and listened to, nothing was too much trouble for Hinkleys. Thank you all, for your compassion and support during such a difficult time.

At the very worst time it was a relief to meet with Debbie at Hinkley Funeral Directors, she talked us through the process of saying goodbye to our lovely mum in a very supportive and helpful way.Everything was explained and all our thoughts and wishes were worked into a funeral service that was just right for the family, and a beautiful send off for Mum. At the very worst time you can't be in better hands, everyone who was involved in our funeral was professional and helped us in a professional and caring way.Thank you.
