They took as much stress out of the arrangements as possible. Very helpful reminders of things that needed to be done. Very understanding and patient. The funeral director on the day was very respectful and professional.

This is the 4th time W Cornford and Sons have provided funeral arrangements for the family. My late mother and myself were treated with dignity and respect at all times. I received a quick response when I phoned during the early hours of the morning to request my mother be taken from her home, which was carried out with all due care. The staff at the local office dealt with matters promptly and efficiently, with a respectful and friendly manner, which was of great assistance for me. I viewed my mother in the Chapel of Rest and she looked lovely, I was so pleased with the way she had been presented. The hearse and limousine arrived on time to take me to the crematorium, including some lovely touches, showing me the flowers on the casket before driving carefully to the crematorium, and explaining the procedure to me. The service itself all went smoothly according to plan. Upon my arrival home in the limousine I was presented with a memory box in which to keep my mum’s treasures, which included packets of forget-me-not seeds to plant, a lovely surprise. A webcast was arranged for the service for relatives unable to be present to watch live, also a copy for me to keep. Covid safety was observed at all times. Plans had been paid and taken out in advance for all the family’s arrangements, as indeed so has my own. A big thank you to all at Cornfords.

What a brilliant service. Everything from the start to the finish was made as easy and painless as possible, with just the right level of involvement and support from Mandy at the Hove branch. The Reverend they recommended for the service was perfect, and my mother would have really liked him too! Can't recommend them enough.
