Everything was organised really efficiently and sensitively. We had a number of bespoke requests relating to our funeral, everybody was really helpful and arranged everything we needed to achieve our goals.

Wellens gave a very caring, supportive, loving, understanding and professional service to myself and family. From my very first contact with them Allison was amazing, nothing was to much trouble, emails were replied to very quickly and she made sure all our needs and wishes were met. Great care was taken of mum, she was treated with respect and as though she was a loved one of Wellens staff. On the day of the funeral all the Wellens staff who were there took great care of mum and all our family and friends they were very respectful and professional. Thank you for making mums funeral easier for us.

From the first contact, Wellens provided a dignified and professional service. My brother and I were treated with respect and the care of Mum was excellent. Linda and her team kept us constantly updated and arranged every detail . The funeral was just as Mum would have wanted and due to Covid rules there was also a video link. The celebrant, Tim , was wonderful , helping with the choosing of music and readings as well as conducting the service. The follow up from Wellens to check that we were all ok and that the service went well was an extra special touch. Thank you all for your kindness, help and service during a sad time for our family. Vivienne Ling and Tony Eyres

We can’t thank S.Wellens & Son's enough for the exceptional service they provided following our mother’s passing, from the planning before the funeral, transferring mum into there care and still after the funeral checking in. Very professional caring company.

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.

Undoubtedly the most down to earth, professional people i have dealt with. Alison & the rest of the team went above and beyond to help. Nothing were too much. They made every part so stress free and were extremely professional without being overbearing. I have dealt with them on a few occasions & there is a reason I always come to them during these times. The way everything were delt with during Covid 19 & with regulations we're outstanding. They are a credit to the company

Wellens funeral services recently arranged our mums funeral, this was very hard due to the current situation with the Covid 19 virus, they made what was a very hard, emotional and sad time, for us a family a lot easier.
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.

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. 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.
