I cannot thank Butler and English enough for the wonderful service they provided to us as a family and my Dad. Navigating a funeral through Covid restrictions was a daunting thought, but Michelle at Butler and English helped us through every step of the way, nothing was to much trouble. Thank you Michelle. On the day the Directors were so respectful, kind and professional. I know Dad would have felt very honoured that they took such good care of him and us. Would highly recommended Butler and English Laindon. Thank you.

I could not have coped with my mothers funeral without the help of Michelle from Butler and English. The whole process of the cremation including flowers, cards,
music and someone to speak about my mothers life at the funeral service. This made it so much easier to cope with our loss.
The funeral director on the day, treated my mother with great respect. Which made my family and myself feel that mum will be remembered in a special way.
Response from Butler & English Funeral Directors
We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after. Your family continues to be in our thoughts and we are honoured to have been able to give you the service you needed.

This is the 3rd time we have used Butler & English, in the last year we have had the great pleasure with having Michelle help us on 2 occasions. What a lovely, warm and kind hearted this lady is. Michelle helps above and beyond expectations. Also provides a great service. John Jeffries who has done embalming on 2 occasions also does a fantastic job really couldn’t have asked for more. From start to finish they made our very sad occasions that little bit easier. Ian also again above and beyond what we could of wished for. Would like to thank all of you at Butler & English superb service and superb people.
