We were very pleased with the service provided by Grimes and Goscombe, both Sue and Dean were extremely helpful and supportive on both the run up to the funeral with all the arrangements and also on the day itself.

With their help the day went as well as anyone can have expected. A truly personal service.

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that we were able to look after you and your family at this difficult time.

The service provided was kind and thoughtful while also being very professional. The funeral director guided us through the process and arranged the service to suit our wishes. Many friends and relatives were not able to attend in person but, per our request, they were pleased to be able to view the service online. Thank you for making a difficult day more bearable.
Response from Grimes & Goscombe Funeral Directors

Wonderful service for my dad provided and perfected by David. He’s always glad to accommodate any request and fulfill them to his best ability which is always 100%.
After doing my mums funeral 2yrs ago it was comforting to have David again to arrange dads.
Cannot thank him and other staff involved enough.
This man is a credit to the job at a time when we are broken with sorrow for our lost ones he is there to hold our hands through it all.

The funeral directors were very helpful and caring at a very difficult time, and in the unprecedented circumstances that was 2020.
All our worries and questions were answered before we asked them. We had a prepaid funeral plan with Dignity, and whole thing was arranged with ease, nothing was too much trouble, and attention to detail was superb.
Can’t recommend them highly enough.
Response from Grimes & Goscombe Funeral Directors
Thank you so much for this lovely review which means all the more at this very challenging time. The team are working very hard to ensure that each family receives outstanding care and I am so glad their dedication has given you the service you needed.
Rating 5.0
Care, empathy, amazing efficiency and listening to exactly what we envisioned, sums up our experience. From the moment we rang Grimes and Goscombe the morning Mum passed,so that she could be taken to the chapel of rest, we knew we were in safe hands. I have no doubt that Mum was looked after with total dignity and care as were we as her family. David worked with us on every detail of the funeral and nothing was too much trouble. We had the most perfect ceremony complete with the service transmitted on line. Thank you David and team, we could not have asked for better. We are eternally grateful.
Response from Grimes & Goscombe Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. 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. It has been a privilege to support your family and care for your Mother.

At all times the staff of Grimes & Goscombe in Wotton-under-Edge showed respect, compassion and very important to myself and members of my family judged the tone of the situation very quickly and joined in with how we wished all aspects of their service to be carried out. David and Steve stood out in particular and I have complete confidence that anyone requiring their services would find the strange world they have entered more comfortable because of support of the staff at Grimes & Goscombe.

Absolutely fantastic service at such a difficult time in my life after losing my daughter. Nothing was too much trouble for D and his team. The compassion which was shown to my family and I was overwhelming. Thank you all so much. I really can't thank you enough for ensuring our wishes were granted. I would highly recommend the Wotton branch xx

As a family, we are very pleased to submit a review on Grimes & Goscombe. From the moment our much loved mum passed away in February, Grimes & Goscombe handled every aspect of her funeral with great professionalism, dedication and kindness. It is always a sad time to lose a parent and invested with huge emotion; every contact we had with Grimes & Goscombe was handled with deep regard and sympathy for our family's grief.
Their organisation was impeccable, no concern too small to handle or too big to be resolved... the funeral day itself passed without a hitch, allowing the family to grieve without other worries.
The family hold Grimes & Goscombe in the highest esteem and we have no hesitation in highly recommending this firm.
Response from Grimes & Goscombe Funeral Directors
Your comments will provide great encouragement to the team to keep doing their job to the best of their ability. I am pleased to hear that our team were so kind and caring to your family and that you had the trust and confidence in our team to be able to deliver the service you expected.

I was surprised to discover just how restrictive the simple funeral was. I was surprised at the lack of discretion given by Dignity to local Directors to mix and match services. The cremation service for the time and date required however was well organised and carried out.

I cannot speak highly enough of David and his team at Grimes and Goscombe. At all times I was treated with respect and compassion and felt confident that my husband’s funeral arrangements were in competent, safe, professional hands. On the day the service went perfectly and was a fitting tribute to a lovely man. Many thanks to all for making a very difficult time a little more bearable.

The arrangements were carried out sensitively and with great dignity.. The service at the Crematorium and the thanksgiving service at the church were memorable occasions.

Dean and David always made time for me whether I had an appointment or not. Made very welcome and treated with respect and empathy. Their advice was invaluable. Both my late father and my husband whose funerals Dean arranged were treated with full respect and dignity. Both Dean and David helped us through both funerals with their professionalism and support.
