After just one telephone call everything was taken care of by the wonderful, caring people at Philip Ford Funeral Directors. My son and I felt that the arrangements for my husbands funeral were so personal to him and not just another funeral to be arranged. Thanks to everyones help we were able to have a funeral for my husband that I and everyone who attended, felt reflected so well his life and passions. Thank you so much for all your help and support at such a difficult time.
Response from Philip Ford & Son Funeral Directors
We know how special each person is and aim to convey this in all aspects of our work from the arrangements to the day of the service.

I felt supported from the very start of the journey until the end. Craig Akhurst even made sure the Liverpool theme carried on into the ties they wore. Nothing was too much trouble even when they had to isolate for a short period of time. I felt they really looked after my brother and made sure he was safe and dressed as I wanted. I really couldn't fault the service in any way at all.
Response from Philip Ford & Son Funeral Directors

We would just like to say a huge thank you to Victoria and her team. They have been extremely professional and caring in one of the hardest times you can ever experience. From the gentleman that came to collect my father through to organising the internment of his ashes , we couldn’t of asked for any better. I know my dad was treated with the upmost dignity and respect he deserved when we entrusted them with him. Thank you for making a difficult time easier.

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.

Everyone at Philip Ford were brilliant they went above and beyond what would have been expected of them they got me through a day that I wasn’t sure I could’ve got through they were there for me whenever I rang no matter what the question and on the day they took total care of me and my family they looked after my husband David with such care I felt it was okay leaving him there with 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

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.

Philip Ford & Son have been responsible for the funeral arrangements for both my mother (10 years ago) and father recently. In both cases Michelle dealt with us with great tact and kindness despite some turbulent family dynamics. I would thoroughly recommend them.
