A funeral is always a difficult and emotional time but the I was very happy with the calm and sympathetic service provided by everyone at B Wallis & Son. My mother's funeral was arranged with minimum fuss and I was supported at every stage with clear explanations given of the process. I have no hesitation in giving 5 stars for service.

I cannot fault the service that was provided by B Wallis & Son. Our first point of contact was Erika who was very supportive, friendly, and caring. She helped us complete all the forms that were required and was very professional. She also kept in contact with us, giving us support all the way. The night before the funeral I was contacted by Amy who told me she would make sure everything went well on the day and put my mind at rest. Her and her team went out of the way to do just that, they were amazing. Our driver was Lynn and she also deserves a mention for the way she waited for the other members of our family to follow the hearse in heavy traffic and taking us back to our venue. Tina was our celebrant who came to meet us at our home, she was also very supportive, caring and understanding. The service was exactly as she informed us it would be. We have also had phone calls afterwards to make sure we were happy with the service and to check in with us, that we are ok and have support if needed. To have the aftercare service is a lovely touch. We cannot thank you enough.

We cannot thank the team enough for the help and kindness we received regarding arranging my Father's funeral. I had never organised a funeral before, but they were there for us every step of the way, making the whole experience so much easier.

The Team, Erica in particular, were always happy to answer my questions, and check the arrangements with us, to ensure that the funeral was exactly as we wished, and that it all ran smoothly on the day. The Celebrant, Tina, took such care to ensure the Service was a personal, fitting tribute, and we appreciated the reassuring call from the Funeral Director the day before. We would highly recommend B Wallis & Son, thank you so much.
Response from B Wallis & Son Funeral Directors

Our first port of call was to Erica in the Dagenham office, from that moment on everything was explained most sympathetically and nothing was too much trouble, in fact she went out of her way to help our father, and we are eternally grateful. We made quite a few calls to Erica, she would always call back if she was too busy, again this takes a lot of pressure off at such an incredibly sad time.
On the day of the funeral, the head pallbearer, a lovely lady, done a wonderful job, pointing us in the right direction at the right time. Everything we needed was organised by Erica, the flowers and order of service etc. also there was a lovely photo of our mum with the flowers outside at the end of the service. Thankyou, Christopher Bookless

Choosing a Funeral Director is not easy as it not something you have long to think about. Both parents had a funeral plan and B.Wallis & Son was the closest to where they lived so was chosen many years ago. Losing both parents within 6 months meant that I had to utilise the services in a quite short timespan. Both times I was given excellent service by Erica in the office and Amy on the day of the funeral. Mum was in a wheelchair and Amy lifted her into the funeral car with such care and tenderness. She took all of the stress away from us. When it was Mum's funeral she remembered us and the service was as considerate as before. I would recommend this company for their compassion and ability to take away the stress at a very stressful time.
