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.

Dad wanted a very simple and cheap funeral, and even though we had the lowest price funeral we still got top notch treatment from all at Philip Ford funeral directors. They helped us at every step and kept us informed of what and when everything was happening couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

The service provided by the funeral directors was very efficient at contacting other agencies involved ie. vicar, flowers, printing. They kept us informed throughout and dealt with the family sensitively.
The service at the church and cemetery went smoothly with care and consideration for mourners at all times and respect for the deceased.
Generally we were all very pleased with the service provided but would have expected nothing less considering the cost involved.

We can’t thank Philip Ford enough for all their help in ensuring our father was treated with dignity and the service they provided us with was personal to him and us. We really can’t thank you all enough for everything you have done from start to finish. An extra special thanks to Steve for making Dad look so peaceful and looking after him. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Philip Ford to anyone and in fact already have done. Thank you all so much. Sue, Debbie and Stuart
