An excellent and efficient service. All concerned were knowledgable and compassionate. We were impressed by the attention to detail and the thoughtful personal touches which made us feel less somber at the crematorium. We would certainly recommend Abbot and English to care for loved ones.

I was very happy indeed with Abbott & English. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Good suggestions made. I phoned them on a number of occasions and nothing was too much trouble. Actual funeral went really well and everyone was very happy with it. Funeral director on the day was very helpful and played his part perfectly. I would certainly recommend them to anyone.
