A really pleasant service in what was an unpleasant moment in our lives very helpful and caring and could not have tried harder to help us thank you

We have used Lewes funeral directors twice in less than 5 months for my father and mother's funerals. We can not thank them enough for the care and sympathy they showed us, on both occasions of using them. Nothing was too much trouble for them. 

They did everything in their power to make the experience as easy as possible, especially under such difficult and emotional circumstances.  

From day one,  their kindness and support where outstanding.  Every one involved, from the office staff, Jo and Mary, to the pull bearers and Matt the gentleman in charge on the day of the funerals. They were so professional and genuinely caring.  We could not have asked for more.  

Both funerals went perfectly, even afterwards at the cemetery for the burials. The same professionalism was shown at the cemetery, as well as at the church. 
As a family we can not  recommend them more highly
Response from Lewes Funeral Directors

The Funeral manager was really good. He was on top of every detail and nothing was to much trouble. When he dropped me off after the funeral he even made sure I had my door key and could get in ! He carried the whole service through nothing was to much trouble and it all went off really well . The female celebrant was so good a lot of the guests said so after the funeral . And they mentioned how good the music was. A member of Dignity office staff got her husband to burn a CD for me with the music I wanted and was most appropriate for my sister. All in all in a global pandemic it went very well . I am so pleased and grateful for their help.
And the flowers were perfect just as I imagined they would be. Because everything was done on the phone of course.
My Thanks to the staff
