From the moment my mother passed away, we have experienced nothing but very good care and attention, particularly from John at A.Shepherd & Sons. Nothing has been too much trouble and everything was explained very clearly: my mother was clearly in safe and capable hands. The funeral cars and procession were very professional and John waited after the service whilst we spoke to relatives who'd travelled some way to the funeral before returning us home.

We couldn't have expected more.
Response from A Shepherd & Sons Funeral Directors

Shepherd & Sons provided an absolutely fantastic service for my mother recently. Throughout the process all the staff were caring, sensitive and helped guide me personally through everything without a hitch, as I had not organised a funeral previously. I’d like to thank John Guinness and Lucy particularly, as they really put our families mind at ease at such a difficult time, and we’re always just a phone all away. I’d have no hesitation at all in recommending Shepherd & Sons. Even with the constraints caused by this Covid pandemic, they made sure the service was dignified, and everything was taken care of. Thank you!
