The staff of James Bradley took control of our mothers funeral arrangements as soon as they were informed. We only needed one family meeting with them to discuss my mothers wishes.Final arrangements were concluded promptly by e-mail.
The funeral was punctual followed by a lovely service without any hitches.
Many thanks to all the staff who proved to be professional and dignified throughout.

I have never had to plan a funeral before, so it was, as expected, a very difficult time more so as it was my sister who had passed away and we were very close. The staff at Bradley's were always friendly and helpful and guided me gently through the whole process, especially Sue to whom I will always be grateful for planning the service (with the added help of my sister), and on the day the whole service was beautiful. Many mourners commented on this and I feel warm thanks are due to Sue and the staff at Bradley's.

After my beautiful Mum passed away the last thing I wanted to deal with was her funeral but my Mum was a wise lady and had a funeral plan with Dignity using James Bradley Funeral Directors. Denise and Sue the two Admin ladies at J.Bradleys that looked after my Mum as well as looking after myself and my family through this upsetting time could not do enough for us including making sure mum was looking her best when we went to visit. They are two lovely ladies and do a wonderful job though I think its more a vocation for them. The funeral itself went without a hitch and mum turned up in a beautiful hearse which the sun shone off. The gentlemen who looked after us on the day were well organised and discreet and nothing was too much trouble in fact when leaving us the driver of our limousine was offered a hug by my sister and he ended up being hugged off everyone which he accepted in good grace. Would thoroughly recommend James Bradley and Sons.
