My mum had a funeral plan in place and from the first time I contacted Dignity to let them know that my mum had passed away, the lady on the telephone who was one of the night staff team had the upmost respect, put me at ease and took as many details as she could and said that when I needed to phone again, it would all be on the computer for someone else to take over. I was very vulnerable at the time and she was brilliant with me. She explained what I needed to do as my mum had died in a Care Home and they arranged for my mum's body to be taken away during the night.

Once I had got the death certificate, I contacted Alison to arrange the funeral. Again, she was brilliant and had remembered me and my brother from when my father had passed away a couple of years before. She explained everything that we needed to do, but with a funeral plan in place, most of the decisions had already been made by my mum previously which made it easier. We decided on a couple of dates which would be suitable so after we had left, Alison contacted the vicar at mum's church but there were renovations being done inside the church so it was not possible to hold a church service there. Alison contacted me to let me know so we decided to just have the service at the crematorium. Alison kept us informed at every stage. When we had decided on music, I spoke to Linda who arranged it for us.

Some of the family wanted to pay their last respects to mum in the Chapel of Rest and they made it possible for family members to come at various times. Nothing was a problem. On the day of the funeral, family members were carrying mum's coffin and they explained the best way to carry it. Alison made a difficult time of our lives so much easier for us by the way she puts you at ease, explains everything and takes over for us. We were very grateful that she arranged mum's funeral for us and apart from the weather, it went very smoothly.

From the office staff to the car drivers, they were a credit to the company. I would recommend Dignity and S Wellens and Sons as we could not fault anything.

I was also contacted at a later date to make sure that we were happy with everything - which we were.

My father passed away on May 25th this year. We contacted Wellens on the day of his passing and straight away they made us feel at ease. My family and I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Alison and Debbie for the love, care, support and professionalism shown to us all. As I am sure people who have lost members of there family know it's a heartbreaking time and your head is in a spin.

The people that I dealt with Linda and Allison were fantastic, at all time they were respectful and caring at what was a difficult time for me. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything was explained to me during the planning of mum's funeral. I came to see mum in the chapel of rest and was able to sit with her for a while, I wasn't hurried in any way. We had used Welland in the past for my dad and mum had wanted to be looked after by yourselves. I can't think of anything that I would have wanted doing differently and would recommend them to other.
