Could not have asked for more during my dealings with this firm. Every person I had dealings with, from the people who answered my calls up to the people who arranged and executed the funeral on the day were professional, courteous and very understanding of my situation.

From the start of the process to the funeral the professionalism of the staff at Poultons of Epping has been exemplary. Nothing was too much to ask, right down to leaving a hairbrush and asking if mum's hair could be brushed once she was dressed. Whatever we wanted to put in the casket with mum was always accomodated (as long as it was allowed, no metal). Mum was looked after with care and dignity. Clare was amazing so calm and professional with an enormous amount of empathy and care for us as well as mum. The whole process was explained to us, we were asked what it was we wanted and given full explanations along the way. If there were any changes we wanted we could do so without any fuss. We did a lot of the organisation ourselves like flowers and eulogy plus the order of service but you can ask them to do this for you. The day of the funeral was very professionally completed and all of the gentlemen that attended from Poultons were smart, kind, patient and curteous. The funeral went well and then we had the after care from Clare and her staff, they called to see how we were, they were genuinely caring and supportive. The offices and chapel of rest are clean and bright. I cannot speak highly enough of their professionalism and caring throughout the whole process.

From start to finish i couldn't have asked for a more professional service from Dignity, they looked after my wife as one of there own, and the contact from there staff outstanding, in particular Craig Wilson, he was the best, nothing was to much trouble for him and what ever I asked he carried out to the full. A top man and a very professional man.
We thank you Craig from the bottom of our hearts for what you carried out for my darling wife - mother and grandmother who is dearly missed so much.
