    The service from day one was everything I could have asked for during a difficult time. Staff were sensitive, understanding and upfront about options available which helped us to make a decision much more easily. They were able to provide recommendations for other services too and we were very grateful for their professional and approachable manner. Could not recommend highly enough! Thank you so much.

    We had a very good experience with Sharron at the blackley office. Friendly and professional with nothing too much trouble.She kept us informed throughout about all the arrangements. The service at the cemetery went as well as could be expected. Everyone respectful and explained what was going to happen. Would recommend to others.
