    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. Alison and Debbie we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being there for us listening to our wishes and making them form a beautiful send off for our Dad. Sharon Pieroni

    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.
