The arranging of Mum’s funeral was dealt with care and compassion. Everything we wished for Mum was carried out to the highest standard. Even to the detail of the drivers on the day wearing purple ties. Every step of the way, you made us feel that we mattered and that you fully understood how we felt during this awful time. Exceptional service with kind, caring members of staff.

I would like to thank all the staff at Titford Funeral Directors in Old Road Clacton who were involved with the funeral arrangements for my late aunt. In particular Linda who was extremely helpful and informative, nothing was too much trouble for her throughout the whole process, everything was just as Linda said it would be. Linda also introduced me to ‘Nikki’ a celebrant to carry out the service which again was just as expected. I would have no hesitation in using them again should the occasion arise.
Kind regards,
Jan

Linda, Nikki, Scott and the team provided a first rate service and provided assistance whenever needed. The weather was miserable on the day but the drivers and assistants made sure we were as close as could be on pick up and drop off so not too get to wet. The whole experience from start to finish was handled very well with sensitivity and the service on the day went without any issues and was just how we had planned.
We would just like to say a big Thank you to all concerned for making this day as easy as possible.

Great service. Linda in the office couldn't do enough for us giving us so e useful tips and guidance to the whole process, making sure we were comfortable with every step. Scott on the day was very considerate of my father who was in a wheelchair, he took extra time to make sure he was comfortable. Would recommend this service to anyone who finds themselves in our position dealing with a death is never easy but when It is sudden you feel numb and need to extra understanding that all the Titford team provided. Great Job Titford

I cannot fault the service I received from the Old Road branch.
From the initial phonecall I made to the follow up call I received.

Linda in the office was wonderful and on the day of funeral I felt in safe hands with Scott as did everybody at the funeral.

We would like to say that Titfords funeral services were outstanding, we live 4 hours drive away from Clacton and could not attend due to Covid-19 to sort this out so it had to be arranged over the phone, the staff were outstanding, professional, understanding, supportive and kept us updated at all times, the main person I dealt with was Linda who is a credit to your company she was very supportive and did not mind how many times I called her if I was not sure of anything. If there was a platinum review for you it would be at the top 10/10 for everything, the memory box we got in the post afterwards with photographs brought us all to tears, thank you for that it means so much to the family especially his sister. We would like to add that if anyone looks at this review I would recommend you 100% well done to everyone you made it so easy for us thank you all

Titfords in Clacton, are the 3rd Funeral Directors I have had to contact since 2007. By far they have been the very best. polite, courteous, patient, friendly and very efficient. From start to finish they were excellent. The day of my mother's funeral was beautifully executed with military precision. I could not have asked for more.

To Linda,Jacky and the rest of their colleagues, thank you so very much. They all made a very difficult time so much easier to bear.
Response from Titford Funeral Directors

Losing my beloved mother, was the worst day of my life, my family & I could not have been dealt with in a more professional, sympathetic manner, than we were by Dignity/Titfords. All the people we dealt with, were respectful of our wishes, made sure we were kept up to date & were so caring on the day of my mother’s funeral & afterwards. You all made a terrible time in my life, a little easier to bear.
Kindest regards,
Sandra.

This organisation was exceptional in keeping all the sensitive aspects of my late Mother's funeral seamless and dignified. All the individuals I came into contact with were both Professional and reassuring throughout. From the outset my Dear Mum was referred to by her Christian name, which preserved her importance. The Funeral became a Special Event, remembering Mum, rather than a solemn occasion whereby our memories could have been enveloped in grief. I am grateful for the generous support and guidance shown to me during an anxious time. Thank you to all at Titfords Funeral Directors, Clacton.
Response from Titford Funeral Directors
We are incredibly grateful that you took the time to leave us this review. It is good to know that we managed to make the day run as smoothly as possible for you and that the final wishes for your Mother were carried out to the highest standard.
