    I would like to thank, Christine fergusson of the Tilbury & Essex funeral service, for all the help and attention to detail, she provided for me, during such a sad and difficult time. To say she gave a 100% is an understatement, she showed true concern , consideration and respect and arranged my late mothers funeral perfectly, meeting all I wished for and was there too, just for a chat and cup of tea. The rest of the staff are amazing too, on the day, it touched my heart, for the respect they showed my mum and to me. They all made this sad time, much easier to cope with and bear. Thank you All again

    The service provided by all staff was superb.They were very supportive in every way and offered us optional extras to my Mum's funeral plan with no pressure to take them. I would thoroughly reccomend their services should you be in the position to need them.
