    From initial meeting with the Funeral Director, Chris, we were treated with great respect and kindness. Communication was excellent throughout the dwell before the actual funeral and they guided us well.
    On the day all was just perfect for the send off we gave to my father - the team on the day lead by Don were helpful and courteous and great assistance to our mother in her wheelchair.
    Thoroughly recommend Selim Smith to anyone in the sad situation of approaching a funeral.

    We were satisfied with the service we received from the planning of the funeral through to the day itself. The celebrant who carried out the service was very efficient as were all the staff who dealt with the funeral on the day.
