Having a funeral plan through Dignity made everything so much easier. The staff at Ernest Brigham were absolutely amazing (especially Anthony). Everything was explained to me sympathetically and with utter care, and I was guided through every stage. I met the celebrant, viewed my Dad and felt really involved, and totally supported. The day of the funeral went exactly as planned, and Howie was given a lovely send off.
Response from Ernest Brigham and F. Kneeshaw & Sons Funeral Directors
I am happy that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service for your Father. It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. The team will be very pleased to hear that their care and support made a difference to your family.

I cannot recommend enough Ernest Brigham& F Kneeshaw & Sons Funeral Directors - Dignity with Distinction - these words say it all. Everyone - and in particular Vicky & Leslie- was so professional, sensitive, respectful & caring which made a very distressing time so much easier to come through. Every kind of arrangement was thoughtfully offered & helpfully organised , from flowers to order of service booklets, Chapel of Rest arrangements & nothing was too much trouble. Aftercare & grief management was sensitively & respectfully offered including a gift of a beautiful Remembrance Book which will be treasured so much by our family.Many many thanks.

Max and his team at Ernest Brigham’s of Bridlington are simply wonderful.

They were reassuring, professional, confident in what they were doing and extremely caring. Their attention to detail took away so much pressure and worry from the family at such a difficult time.

Together they made the unbearable bearable. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

ANTHONY YOU ARE A STAR !!!

Your kindness, compassion at such a difficult time was amazing. The funeral for our beautiful Mum was everything and more. On the day itself I felt proud, you showed such respect, dignity and graze.

To every one at Brigham's can we say a very big Thank you, to a team of people who made us feel so at ease and nothing was ever too much trouble.

It is difficult to bring humour into a funeral but we managed to do that between us. My Mum was a full of life person and would be sad to think everyone was sat weeping and crying. Instead we filled it with dignity and enough to raise a smile in sad times.

So to you all again Thank you,Thank you, thank you and remember "Bring me sunshine in your smile"

Ernest Brigham really helped to make our mother’s funeral go without a hitch. Every little contingency was thought of and attended to in the lead up to and during the event. They were there unobtrusively in the background if we needed them and making sure all went well. We highly recommend their services.

The service provided by Ernest Brigham Funeral Directors was first class from initial consultation, to support following the funeral service. Daniel was exceptionally helpful throughout and could not have done more to facilitate the service that met our wishes. I would recommend these Funeral Directors without any hesitation.
