My father in law passed away at the beginning of July (2019). Thankfully before he passed he gave me an idea of what he would want his funeral to be like. He specifically requested the use of Tanners as they had taken care of his beloved daughter many years before.
We met with Claire who was very sympathetic to our loss. She was patient, kind, caring, professional and realistic which we appreciated. Funerals aren’t cheap! And you don’t want to feel like you are not giving your loved one the best but Claire knew there was a budget and helped us to stick to it.
After our initial meeting Claire called a couple of days later to see how we were all doing which we thought was a lovely touch.
I took the responsibility of organising the funeral and was the client but the week of the funeral the manager contacted me to come over to meet my mother in law so that she would know who was coming on the day, reassure us as to what would happen and it was nice to know who would be taking care of Jim- another lovely touch.
My only niggle would be not knowing where Jim was. I was told that I would get a phone call when he had been taken into Tanners care. I didn’t get a call and thankfully everyone felt they had said their goodbyes so we didn’t need to see Jim but it was in the back of my mind. I also requested a newspaper obituary and had to chase for the proof to be sent over. Once I had made that call and asked where it was I was reassure it was an accidental oversight and it was rushed through and put in with ample time.
From initial contact with the Dignity call centre to paying the bill I was treated professionally and with sympathy and respect. Jim was a true gentleman. Considerate and kind with the patience of a saint and with the assistance of Claire and the team at Tanners he had the send off he deserved. For that, we will always be grateful.

My father died very suddenly just before Christmas and I had no idea what to do. Thankfully my father had a Funeral Plan with Tanner's and they took care of everything, I could not have asked for better care. It was a wonderful service given with care and compassion. I would not hesitate recommending Tanners to anyone in need of Funeral services. I will be forever grateful for their assistance during a time I wasn't expecting for at least another 10-15 years. Thank you to one and all at Tanners for taking care of my beloved father.

We were treated with the greatest care and compassion by Claire and felt that nothing was too much trouble, she made a very difficult time easier to cope with and made sure everything was perfect for us on the day of Mum's funeral. Thank you
