Response from T. & M. E. Walsh Funeral Directors
We are incredibly grateful that you took the time to leave us this review. I am happy that we provided a professional service to you.
Rating 5.0
We would like to say a specific thank you to Jacki and Michelle for their professional, helpful, kind and compassionate care and support during the arrangement and follow-through with my mother’s funeral held 28/1/2020 at 11.30am at Charnock Richard Crematorium. Their attention to detail was exemplary and we were grateful for their capability to reassure and sympathise every step of the way. Thank you so much for helping to ensure my mother’s send off was effortless and made easier with your warmth, your high standards and your kindness at such an awkward and difficult time. The way you guided us gently through each stage of the process allowed me to focus on supporting the older relatives who took the time and trouble to travel from Scotland to attend the funeral. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Walsh’s of Standish.
Response from T. & M. E. Walsh Funeral Directors

Having sadly lost my father and then my mother in the past 13 months, Jackie and her team have arranged and conducted their funerals and they were so supportive and took so much stress away for me. They worked with me to arrange a date for the funerals to tie in with my sister arriving from abroad where she now lives. A special moment at my father's funeral was when the Funeral Conductor wore his Liverpool FC membership tie and pin as we had You'll Never Walk Alone for Dad as he was such a huge fan. That little thing meant the world to my sister and I. Thank you once again for caring.
Response from T. & M. E. Walsh Funeral Directors

My fathers funeral took place on dec 5th 2019 and walshs funeral home organised everything with dignity, before, during and after the funeral. The best praise was from his wife who is in a care home, "it was a sad day, but a nice day".

Jackie was excellent, and supported us with much kindness and understanding when we were making the funeral arrangements. She was always available, either to meet or answer questions on the phone, and made a difficult and upsetting job as simple as possible for us.
I felt we were in very capable hands right from the start.
