All the staff at Bennett's were polite and sympathetic towards both my sister and myself,they could not do enough for us especially with the added problems surrounding the covid crisis.

Well done.
Response from Bennett Funeral Directors
Thank you so much for this lovely review which means all the more at this very challenging time. The team are working very hard to ensure that each family receives outstanding care and I am so glad their dedication has given you the service you needed.

Laura, Matt and the whole team are wonderful. They looked after our dad in October 2020 and sadly had to look after our mum in January 2021 From start to finish everything was dealt with in a very calm and efficient way. Nothing was too much trouble, all of our requests were received without judgement and our music choices were spot on. Arranging the funeral of your parents is simply awful, but knowing that the people you choose to take them on their final journey, will do so with the utmost respect, care and attention to detail is something that is so important for the family they leave behind - Laura, Matt and the team do this. Thank you. Diane and Alan

Every aspect of the arrangements for Stephen Barnwells funeral was dealt with in a most satisfactory and caring manner.The fact that he had arranged a pre paid funeral made our responsibility to him much easier than perhaps it would have been otherwise.

We are,and I'm sure that he too, would have been very satisfied with the service provided by yourselves..
Response from Bennett Funeral Directors

Without the Dignity Funeral Plan, I wouldn't have known where to begin. The policy gave me the number of a local company, just 5 minutes down the road with the most wonderful staff. Every step was handled with compassion and everything explained simply, from visiting, logistics, finding the most perfect vicar, Order of Service,Dad's ashes and the Stonemason. There wasn't a thing they couldn't help with, were always available and all correspondence was quickly dealt with. There were a couple of unusual issues, the necessary doctor was not available for 2 weeks, so everything was provisionally booked to start with and they looked after my dad with great respect. My dad requested balloons on his coffin, this didn't phase them in the slightest and they dealt with it as if it were the simplest thing in the world. I cannot thank them enough, in particular, Laura and Matt who maintained a continuity of service that instilled complete trust in them. Thank you so very much for helping me through this.
Response from Bennett Funeral Directors
