Not exactly a review I or anyone else would usually write, however on the passing of my father I would highly recommended both abbey funeral directors and dignity as a must and a first stop in assisting with just about everything.

From Tracey in the office at drury road who dealt with everything you could and in some cases couldn’t think of to Scott and the team who assisted on the day, it was both outstanding and very much appreciated.

My thanks to all involved from start to finish, my mother is eternally grateful and although I feel for anyone who suffers a loss, please consider both abbey and dignity to help both relieve the pressure and allow you peace of mind.

My thanks again for everything

All the staff at abbey were very professional and respectful of family wishes. We were given plenty of time in all aspects of the service, so thank you to all at abbey, including Jim, for making a distressing time more bearable. Anthony Still.
