    The staff were kind and actively listened to our requests. All the staff were respectful and did their best to accommodate our needs. The communication was good and we were given reassurance that our requests would be carried out. The chapel of rest was very tastefully furnished and personalised to reflect the age of our loved one . We were given ample time to discuss our choices and the charges were explained in detail.
