Brilliant, professional, empathic, thoughtful, Elaine made you feel very ease, nothing was too much, this lady went above and beyond to make everything perfect, during this upsetting times, even though it was strict covid conditions that where adhered to, whilst Elaine was very professional, she also mad you feel like you were sat in your own living room, very down to earth lady, she went above and beyond to make it as painless as she possibly could, Elaine also recommended a minster Denise, she too was Brilliant, perfect, I woukd definitely recommended and I myself will continue to use them if the need arises,
As a family we thought Elain had done such a brilliant job, we bought a gift for her, which she was truly emotionally humble
