I found all staff very helpful and very careing,nothing was to much for them to help me and my family through this sad time. The service was a perfect send off. As we didn't want black the staff Evan wore red ties as to our request. The follow up after was very careing. We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts

We cannot fault the service we received from the Tewkesbury branch. I think it was Tracey we dealt with and she was so caring and compassionate but very professional also and knew just the right things to say and when to take a break if my mum got a little upset. She was so lovely and helpful and is an asset to your company. She recommended Claire Fraser as our celebrant and she was totally amazing and kind. It all made a very difficult and upsetting time just that little bit easier

Tracie was extremely supportive and compassionate. She gave plenty of time to dealing with arrangements and was especially good at explaining the limitations and extra responsibilities imposed by the need for covid security. IT was like being assisted by a trusted friend.

I could not fault the service my mom was given. Tracey who dealt with everything for me was excellent as were the gents who came on the day. Everything that had been arranged was done I could not have wished for a better service for my dear mom. All who came to her funeral commented on how lovely it was for a send off. Hats off to Malcom Presland

Tracie was fantastic. She was really kind and talked everything through with me as I hadn't been through the funeral process before. She was constantly making sure everything was in order so I didn't have to worry about anything. She assured me that they'd look after my Dad, which was very comforting. The gentlemen who brought my Dad to the church were very respectful and kind. I would highly recommend Malcolm J Presland Funeral Directors.

Excellent Service from start to finish. The whole process was dealt with in a sympathetic manner and nothing was too much trouble. We were particularly impressed with the "little touches" - "taking our Father into your care" "White rose on him whilst in your care". All the staff were disciplined, discrete and very caring. PS "Tracie's Coffee Shop" was a welcome haven in a time of great sadness, sorrow and grief, always available, a lovely cup of coffee and a listening ear
