Their service was caring and organised and helped me arrange what is very important to get right but difficult to do when you are upset at the loss of a loved one. They cared about my thoughts and ideas but also suggested things i hadnt thought about that i would of otherwise been upset that i didnt include in the service. Phillip Ford carried out my dads funeral 10 years ago and i knew my step mother would want and have the wonderful caring send off they both deserved. I was totally satisfied with their services and would highly recommend them.

The service we received from the staff at a Phillip Ford was everything we could wish for at such a sad time. They were professional, caring, informative and at all times sensitive to our feelings. They took away the worry and concerns that can overwhelm you when you are at your most vulnerable. They supported us at every step and on the day of the funeral everything was carried out exactly as we had asked and as mum had wanted. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Phillip Ford.
Response from Philip Ford & Son Funeral Directors
