From first walking into the offices of Sankey and Monks we knew that we would be well looked after. The ladies couldn’t have been nicer. They were very efficient and professional. Following our visit we had numerous telephone conversations and they were always so pleasant and helpful. Also they kept us up to date via emails.
On the actual day of the funeral the saloon picked us up at our ‘Wake’ venue on time then we met the Funeral Director at S&M offices who was professional, polished and obviously very well trained. The funeral was conducted to plan.
We have no hesitation in recommending Sankey & Monks and award them the highest star rating.

I can't fault the service provided but when I found out that if I had used a funeral plan, at present day costs it would have been almost £2000 cheaper as opposed to walking in off the street and being at your most vulnerable, therefore being taken advantage of at a time when these things usually happen only the once
Response from Sankey & Monks Funeral Directors
Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you are unhappy with the cost of the service compared to a Pre Paid funeral plan, if you would like to discuss this further please contact the Client Relations Team on 0800 783 7171.

We had a prepaid funeral plan with Sankey and Monks for my father, who recently passed away. From the first phone call to the Funeral Directors, the team took care of everything professionally and efficiently. It helped to relieve the stress of planning a funeral at such an emotionally challenging time. I would certainly recommend Sankey and Monks.

Dianne and staff explained all the options available and gave advice when we asked for it. I found it quite easy to drop into the office if I was unsure of anything. The funeral itself went very smoothly as we were guided by their professionalism. Thank you to you all.

Dear Leslie and Team.
I would like to add a note of Thanks for your help, support, organisation and professionalism with my Mother Funeral.




Your advice, guidance has been invaluable and made the whole process far less stressful than anticipated (as mentioned it was the first Funeral I had to organise).

What Sankey and Monks did was to convert an emotional situation of confusion into a simple process of the required organisation which although took some of the emotion away did not deviate from it.
Your advice on Stuart (The Minister) was spot on also – He did a great job.

Kind regards,
Chris Parr
