    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

    Enjoyed great service and respect from sankey and Monks. It's the first funeral I've arranged and they talked me through all the procedures. I also felt they were honest, kind and father was treated with the respect and dignity he deserved. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone unreservedly
