    Dean was fantastic and made the whole process easy, very sympathetic and kind at a time which can be difficult.

    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.
