Our contact was Lisa and she was so professional,kind and caring and there wasnt anything that was too much trouble. Communication was excellent. Stacey, contacted me several times prior to the funeral and kept me updated. She really looked after us on the day of the funeral as did our lovely driver. Cannot fault the service at all.

EXCELLENT SENSITIVE POILTE AND FRIENDLY SERVICE
Response from Middleton & Wood Funeral Directors
Thank you for this recommendation.

Our prepaid funeral plan was followed exactly by Garsides here in Biddulph, SoT, who transferred mum, after death, to Ince Middleton and Wood for the funeral. Because of Covid Restrictions, our family church was closed, so M&W arranged a lovely vicar to conduct a graveside service, to our spec. M&W staff met all our cars, travelling from Staffs., Lake District and Preston for the funeral, on their Office car park and provided toilet facilities. The hearse then led us to the cemetery. Staff primed us on graveside procedure, stood with us and remained afterwards until we were ready to leave. From the day mum died, M&W kept in regular contact by phone, text and email advising us of the stage they were up to and what things were legally required by us, thus allowing us a stress- free period of funeral preparations. They just took it out of our hands. Their courtesy, sensitivity, kindness and expertise was outstanding and the follow-up, re headstone etc, is ongoing. Thank you Rose Bridge M&W !!
Response from Middleton & Wood Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. I am happy that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service for your Mother and your family continues to be in our thoughts. We are honoured to have been able to give you the service you needed.

Middleton & Wood provided an excellent professional service following the death of my mum in recent weeks. Their caring and compassionate manner went a long way in making our bereavement more bearable. Thank you to all the staff who played a part in the funeral arrangements.

The staff at Middleton and Woods provided our family with compassion, support and care throughout and their service was professional and dignified. There was always someone at the end of the line to assist with any questions we had. We were repatriating our father to the Republic of Ireland and they organised everything for us, liaising with the Funeral Directors on the other side. The costs were discussed up front, so we knew what we would be paying. Their courtesy, professionalism and kindness made a difficult time for our family much more bearable. Thank you to all the staff. We would have no hesitation in recommending Middleton and Woods.
