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

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.

We couldn't have had such care and thought given to us on the recent death of my mother Daphne. From the first visit until her final resting place, the staff were kind and caring and listened to what we wanted and provided an excellent service thanks to David and his team.

Excellent from the first meeting to the arrangements. They went over and beyond regarding the music choice. The floral tribute ( vegetable wreath) was outstanding and a real talking point. The driver was prompt. The whole experience was truly perfect ( as perfect as a funeral can be ). They even delivered a memory box after the service. I can not rate this company highly enough. Excellent.

I was very happy with the service from Dean and David at Grimes & Goscombe. At a sad time for me and my family, they organised my father’s funeral in a way that was personal for all of us. They kept in touch with me regularly before and after the service, and they organised the donations to our chosen charities. Thank you.

Unfortunately, this year we have required the services of Grimes and Goscombe twice. On both occasions, we were treated with the utmost kindness and understanding. As neither my sister or I live locally, most of the planning for the funerals was via email, and all our requests met with very quick and helpful replies. Similarly, on the day of each funeral, there was great attention to detail and respect for everyone's feelings.
As the funeral ceremonies were the last thing we could do for our parents, it was extremely important for us that everything went as we had planned. The staff of Grimes and Goscombe ensured that this was the case, and we cannot thank them enough.
