First class service as expected. I have used your services before, so I knew what to expect. Staff could not be helpful enough. Tracy with whom I dealt with was totally professional from start to finish. The team on the day did a great job of making myself, family and friends feel at ease, especially the head undertaker.

I would like to say thank you to everyone who helped our family at a difficult time at Green and Sons.
At all times they were helpful and completely took away any stress that comes with organising a funeral.
In particular I thank Tracey for her complete attention to detail and the care she showed on every contact.
On the day of the funeral I was completely confident that every detail had been seen too.
Thank you again.

Everything went according to plan. From first meeting until the end of the funeral day all run smoothly. Staff were kind, understanding and helpful.
Even down to collecting my mum after cremation how the staff took care of her, wrapped carefully and delivery in a beautiful bag with a rose.

From the first phone call to FEJ Green & Sons we were treated with dignity and compassion. Jennifer was our first point of contact and helped us plan our mums funeral with empathy and compassion.
On the day, James and the team helped the day go as smooth as it could, showing the greatest respect for mum and all who attended, and checking throughout that we were happy with each step before proceeding.
Thank you from all our family.

We never looked at any other funeral directors as we knew of other people who had used Greens in the past, I can honestly say after the service we got I certainly don’t feel that I should of looked elsewhere. From the first phone call to the last all staff have been extremely caring & thoughtful. Tracey made the whole process as smooth as possible and on the day Jason & the rest of the team helped us through our very difficult day.

Thank you from all the family.

From start to finish Greens could have not provided a better service. Nothing was too much trouble from the staff in the office to the men carrying out my Dad's funeral on the day.
I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who is in the unfortunate position of having to arrange a funeral for a loved one. During a very difficult time Greens made it so much easier.

Everyone at Greens are so thoughtful, kind, caring, considerate and professional. This is the 3rd time we have used them to arrange a funeral for a loved one and they could not have been any more helpful.
The service they supplied us with from start to finish made a very sad experience to plan so much easier and a lot less stressful than it could have been.
