    From the initial phone call informing the company of Mum's death to the post funeral meeting, the service I received was excellent, compassionate and professional. I felt reassured that all was organised and on the day everything flowed which gave me peace and comfort that I had done all that I could for my mother. I fully recommend Selim Smith and Co.

    With nothing to compare it with, writing a review is difficult. However, we found the hope given in the office by Elaine was excellent.
    We found the staff who assisted at the funeral helpful and respectful and ensured the whole event went smoothly.
    The follow up care was good and would have no problem recommending Selim Smith to anyone.

    Elaine who dealt with us was fine and kept us informed about everything and the Community Celebrant gave a lovely Service which was so appropriate with just the few of us.

    Nothing went wrong, it was all immaculate completed as per my thoughts and instructions, and also as per the discussions with the staff. Everyone who attended made positive remarks about the funeral service and how careful and caring the staff were. They say you get what you pay for, absolutely with this company. A huge thank you.

    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.
