Middleton & Wood Funeral Directors recently looked after the funeral arrangements of my Father’s funeral. All matters were dealt with in a sensitive, supportive and informative manner and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who I encountered. A funeral is a difficult time for any family to deal with, complicated further by the current Covid situation which has to be considered. At all times, the funeral director staffs were sympathetic to the family requirements’ and within the regulatory framework, met our wishes as far that was reasonably practicable; even allowing access to the Chapel of Rest over the Christmas bank holiday period to allow the family to pay their respects. I have nothing but positive comment to make and extend a vote of thanks to the whole of the Middleton & Wood Team. Their attention to detail, respectful approach and their timely supportive communications was truly appreciated.
Response from Middleton & Wood Funeral Directors

Booking the funeral with no fuss with Elaine to the curtains being drawn was just 100% with not one problem. We have since recommended a friend to them who has just lost their wife.
Brilliant service. Thank you.
