Excellent service at Middleton and Wood Hindley. Albeit during a lockdown period Hazel could not have been more accommodating and helpful. They arranged a wonderful service it was lovely.

Went to see Hazel at Middleton and Wood in Hindley, she was very professional from the moment we walked in,
answering all our questions fully. She explained everything that was going to happen, from the moment my father was picked from the hospice, to going and seeing him at the weekend. We was greeted at the door by Stacey and shown in, again everything was explained as to what was going to happen on the day of the funeral, (times etc). Hazel put us in touch with Lisa, who came to see my mother and myself to get a feel of my fathers life, so she could do the service at Howe Bridge Crematorium. We cannot praise her high enough as she helped us through this difficult time. Lisa contacted us the day after the funeral to see how we all were.
Response from Middleton & Wood Funeral Directors
It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. The team will be very pleased to hear that their care and support made a difference to your family and it has been a privilege to look after your Father.

From star to finish this service was professional, respectful and caring. Every request, however small, was honoured. Communication throughout was prompt and there was useful guidance on issues needing attention post-funeral. All stress was eliminated on the day of the funeral, as one felt in very safe hands. The funeral was conducted with dignity and reverence.
