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.

John and his team were totally amazing. They made a very stressful situation so much better. Nothing was to much, the contact was just enough and the support provided was fabulous.
On the day of the funeral there were lots of little things we didn’t expect which were lovely. The framed photograph of dad, the professional attitude and approach was perfect.
Thank you

A personal and friendly service, making what was a very difficult time easier to bear. John Horner was absolutely wonderful - compassionate, personable and Keir is informed every step of the way. David was also exceptional. Both are an absolute credit to the business. Thank you so very very much. My dad would have fully approved.

Funeral arrangements made during lockdown but Kirsten was very kind and thoughtful throughout. She guided us through the whole process with patience and answered all questions professionally on the phone. I did go to the office to sign the paperwork and the office and social distancing made you feel very safe. Would highly recommend this funeral directors. The staff were very professional on the day and the celebrant made the service very personal.
