    From the start, Liz at Aldens was compassionate & helpful.She helped me choose the right funeral, put me in touch with the celebrant-who also did an excellent job, & organised everything for me & kept in regular contact to keep me updated.

    The funeral went as well as these things can do.Again I was guided by the staff at Aldens as to the procedures.
    In all I cant fault them in any way,They were kind, compassionate & helpful and steered me through this difficult time.I cant thank them enough.

    We dealt with a lovely lady called Liz who was very supportive and understood what we were going through. Liz helped us through the procedure and was very proactive so we did not have to keep thinking about things Liz sorted everything out.Liz enabled us to personalise the funeral which meant a great deal to us as a family. We would also like to say about Jason who the day before the funeral came around to our house and went through last minute things regarding the funeral. Jason was very professional and understanding we felt at ease. We would definitely recommend A W Alden & Son and a family member has already got a Funeral Plan in place and we will be doing the same. Could not fault anything the service was special and we want to give a big big thank you.

    What can I say about Liz and the team at A W Alden & Son, other than exceptional. From the first contact to the final contact, they were all kind and very professional. Everything was handled brilliantly. At an emotionally stressful time, they made the arrangements go so effortlessly. Thank you to them all. Highly recommend them.

    From first contact I have nothing but praise for your staff, the way they conducted themselves, the support and help they gave, thoughtfulness, was second to none. A sudden change to the service was taken on board, no fuss or bother and everything was exactly how I asked for it to be. I can thoroughly recommend all staff in contact with me as being of fantastic people.
