Thankyou to Kristin and staff at S P Astley for all your help with funeral arrangements for my late brother.
The funeral was beautiful in every way and all went to plan on the day.
We appreciated your help and advice especially with things such as the Order of Service. It was beautiful and reflected my brothers love of music.
We would definitely use S P Astley again. Just hope it isn’t for a long time.

Great service from start to finish, thank you. Really caring staff who help you every step of the way to achieve your vision for your loved one.

My mum sadly passed away in June it's was a very emotional time. Fortunately my mum had a funeral plan and this directed me to this company. From the word go they were excellent in taking on the arrangements of the funeral. They were caring without being overbearing they liased with other parties involved which was invaluable to me as I was not in any fit state to do this I can not thank them enough. My mum had a natural buriel and a Celibrant she was exceptional. The funeral itself was beautiful if this can be said of a funeral. Thank you so much.

I think the service I received from staff at S.P. Astley Funeral Directors was excellent.
Nothing was too much trouble for them all from helping sort out the arrangements we wanted to on the day of funeral guidance which was so easy to understand. Also the information on other services that could be offered if needed ie, getting the headstone sorted to have mums name added was good to know. I would not hesitate to recommend them to other people at all. Would just like to say a massive Thank You to all the staff, you are all very professional but also friendly enough to make things much easier to deal with.
