Rating 5.0
The staff at Howard and Sons in Orsett were second to none when we chose them to arrange my wife's funeral. Nothing was too much trouble and both Deborah and Ian were professional and empathetic at all times. At all times they were respectful . The celebrant they arranged to conduct the actual service was first class. The stationery for the Order of Service was of exceptional quality. A kind gesture was the memory book and packets of Forget-me-Not seeds they gave us.
I have no hesitation in recommending Howard and Sons funeral services.
