Always there when you need them. Nothing is too much trouble. So very kind and caring not to mention professional. I would recommend Gildersons to anyone. Jasmine is a wonderful woman who put me at ease as soon as I walked through the door. She managed to make a sad occasion less painful. Thank you so much for all your time and effort.

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.

Jasmine Blackmore at Barkingside was absolutely splendid in every respect. In fact her and team at Barkingside were brilliant and handled my mom respectfully and exactly as we would have wanted. Many thanks to all there for a funeral that although small felt just right.
