All our arrangements were carefully coordinated by Blanche. Her fine attention to detail, kindness, and absolute professionalism made a difficult time much less daunting.

My first experience at this found the staff at the Funeral Parlour to be excellent willing to take time to explain things ,did not mind if I returned more than once to clarify things. The lead mourner on the day was very helpful and made the occasion go smoothly which is exactly what was required.
