The service, compassion and attention to detail from Sharon, Kit and the other members of staff was outstanding- they went the extra mile. I would definitely recommend Unsworths Funeral Services as we received First Class Service.
Response from Unsworths Funeral Directors
We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after. Thank you for the kind comments posted on your online review.

Unsworths, particularly Sharon & Kit, were excellent in the service, care and respect they showed myself, my sister and my late mum. My mum passed away relatively suddenly and with neither of us knowing where to start with arranging the funeral, Sharon was amazing. She listened to us talk about what we thought mum would like, who she was, and gave her advice and guidance on how the whole process worked. Sharon also was quick to arrange the date and to organise a wonderful Celebrant for the service. She kept us informed of what was happening between the first meeting, mum arriving in their care and after the service when I went to collect mum's ashes.

On the day, Kit and his staff were reassuring, caring and ever so professional. The additional touch of the bearers and Kit wearing yellow ties, my mum's favourite colour, is another example of how personal and caring Unsworths are.

In the saddest two weeks of mine and my sister's lives, Unsworths cared for us and supported us beyond belief. My sister and I will be forever grateful for their service. Thank you.

My mum had purchased a funeral plan just after dad died 14 years ago she had stipulated what she wanted which made it much easier for her family as she had advanced dementia when she died so would not have been able to make those decisions . Sharon was extremely professional and kind and guided us through the process . David carried out mums service and came to see us soon after mum died to help decide how the service would go which turned out to be a perfect farewell service for mum. As with Sharon he was both professional and kind and any additions we made to the service he added . I also was grateful that we could collect mums ashes from the funeral directors or they would deliver to the home which we felt was a personal touch. We felt extremely supported by all the team at Unsworth Funeral Directors

Brilliant service from start to finish. Both the receptionists were friendly and efficient. The Celebrant recommended by them was exceptional, told him we didn't want morbid and he certainly delivered. We ordered a basket of flowers through Unsworth and they were beautiful, after the service I took them home and they last three weeks. Arrangements on the day of the funeral went to plan, the undertaker met us at the crematorium, social distancing was observed at all times. Would definitely recommend.

Everything went effortlessly and free from stress from the start. We encountered some unexpected difficulties on the day of the funeral (not connected to Unsworths or the service they provided) but the staff from Unsworths stepped up immediately, taking pressure off the family. We cannot thank them enough for the support we have received from the beginning of the process of organising the funeral through to the day itself and subsequent contact. We definitely feel that Unsworths have been more than just funeral directors in their handling of my mothers funeral.

All the staff we dealt with at Unsworths, were highly professional, emphatically understanding, nothing was too much trouble, they made a difficult day actually enjoyable, if that makes sense. We had a humanist, Bill to undertake the service, who was fantastic, would highly recommend, the service was totally about the person and a celebration of their life. Kit who met us on the day, just took control we didn't have to worry about a thing, the driver took a lovely route to the cemetery which passed all the landmarks that meant something to Bruce, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I cannot thank Jane and Emma enough for their support and care during the preparations for my father’s funeral. They made a horrible time far more bearable! The level of respect and compassion they showed to my family and I was second to none! Emma was always at the end of the phone and every question asked was answered, every query sorted. Emma was also wonderful with my 14 year old daughter! Jane just made things happen with perfection and the upmost respect! The service, the minister, the cars, the order of service ...all just outstanding. Thank you ladies!
