I have never organised a funeral before so I had no idea where to begin. I did not need to worry though because it was all made simple thanks to the wonderful kind lady at B.Wallis. She talked us through everything and helped with selecting flowers, the order of service printing and the minister for the service. Her dedication made it all so easy for me at a time when I was grieving the death of my mum. She was like a dear friend who had stepped in to hold my hand and guide me through it all. I was especially grateful to her for arranging to stop at the care home,where mum lived for 7 years, on the way to the crematorium so the staff could say goodbye. The family were delighted with mum's funeral. It was perfect and everyone commented on how lovely it was. No words can express how grateful I was to be able to say goodbye to my mum in such a perfect way.Thankyou

My family and I would recommended this company to the highest level. From walking into the front door on the first day of my mother’s passing to dropping us off at the wake the staff here were 100% commendable.

Nothing was too much trouble, all the finer details explained in a Lanuage we understood to the care my Dear Mother received, all of which were second to none.

5 stars given to an exceptional service with high quality and ease. Keep up the good work - Would highly rec

My sister and I sadly lost our mum recently and we were glad that she had a funeral plan in place with B Wallis & Son Faircross. It made organising the funeral less stressful and we were grateful that both Mary and Amy were kind, caring and professional and we felt our mum was in very good hands. Both my husband and I are going to get a funeral plan from B Wallis to save our sons some stress in the future and I highly recommend B Wallis & Son Funeral Directors.

Thank you everyone at B Wallis & Sons of Faircross Parade, Barking. From the lovely lady in the office to the pall bearers on the day of the funeral, their conduct was exemplary and they showed nothing but compassion and dignity, making a very difficult time run very smoothly. They were very attentive but not intrusive, going beyond their brief to make sure everything went well, enabling us to grieve without any concerns or worries. I shall be returning to B Wallis & Sons to arrange the internment of the ashes to enable us to complete our much loved Uncle's wishes.
