Under such difficult circumstances it was a relief to know that everything was being taken care of so professionally, and with such sympathetic support. Everything was made so easy. We can not praise Jennifer or her colleagues highly enough, and would have no hesitation in recommending Tates.

Dear all. I cannot thank you enough for kindness and understanding on the second saddest day of my life, taking my beloved wife to to her rest. From the visit from your kind understanding lady in charge of the day the evening before to check any final arrangements and requests for the funeral the next day For the professional and kind way the team carried out their task. I realise they do this every day but they made a very sad day bearable. From their time keeping to taking the flowers to the wake, thank you all you are a credit to your company. Everybody complimented me on the service. I only sorted it out, but your team made it all possible. Thank you again Mr R Bines (Ray)
