Reviews for S. Wellens & Sons Funeral Directors in Manchester
We would like to especially thank Linda from the Moston branch, she supported me and my family through the worst time of our lives. We was dreading having to arrange the funeral, but Linda had such a warming / professional manner, it was very easy to put something so sad together with ease.
Thank you very much for all your support and services, would highly recommend you.
Debbie was very caring from the first phone call, and had a great understanding as to what we were going through.
She and Linda were very respectful and courteous, nothing was too much trouble.
They were only a phone call away and helped with any problems.
We cannot thank Welles and their staff enough, and would highly recommend their services.
Susan Biddle and family.
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.
