    I was really happy with the service I received from Tanners. They helped me through the whole process and took some of the worry of everything away. I would definitely recommend them to a friend.

    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
