All of the staff were fantastic. Especially Sue, she made me feel at ease and more importantly supported during a very Sad and stressful time. I was in isolation first with my Son and then myself and Sue kindly dropped paperwork off to my home when I couldn’t go out. She helped me and guided me with all of my queries, and explained anything I didn’t understand. The funeral directors were excellent too, they turned up on time and gave us time we needed and explained everything to us on the day, they were really respectful. I would have no problem in recommending this funeral directors

Sue and Amy were amazing in their care of us, both before and during our dad’s last goodbye. They took a huge weight off our shoulders, which enabled us to grieve for our dad rather than us running around doing everything. They followed our wishes to the letter and I would highly recommend their services. A huge thank you to Sue, Amy and the team.
