My husband had a funeral plan which happened to have Finch & Sons Funeral Directors allocated. My family and I were extremely happy with the service Finch’s gave. The staff were courteous, knowledgeable, empathetic and kind and gave us great confidence that everything would run smoothly, which it did, from first contact to the day of the funeral. We couldn’t have asked for more - I would certainly recommend them and shall be making use of their services myself, in the far distant future (I hope).

Hi, E Finches (Aldershot) have been absolutely brilliant from start to finish. All staff showed kindness and compassion to my family during our sad time. Nothing was ever an issue. Any questions/or issues raised they dealt with it straight away. Again on the day of our mum's service they showed warmth, dignity and respect. I would highly recommend people use E.Finches. Thank you once again for everything.

The service was excellent. The staff listened and were supportive, informative and responsive. Due to delay in being able to register the death I was anxious about stress of organising the funeral but we were able to put in place a plan that didn't leave everything to last minute and alleviated anxiety. The actual funeral was exactly what we wanted and went smoothly and enabled us to grieve. Death and dying is a very difficult time and I really appreciated and valued the communication. Thank you

Our personal funeral director, Maks, was absolutely amazing. So caring, compassionate, and supportive from the minute we went into arrange dad's funeral, to the minute we departed the Crematorium. On the day of the service, the Dignity staff were amazing helping myself, my son, and my four nephews who carried dad in. Even the banter between my RAF son and an RAF veteran in the Dignity team was appropriate and welcomed!
On behalf of my mum, and my two sister, we can't thank the Dignity Funerals staff enough.

I decided to use Finches after finding the first funeral director I tried was not very engaging. First impressions matter, especially at such sad times, and I immediately felt much more comfortable dealing with Maks at Finches.

Unfortunately, I contracted COVID early on in the process but this did not prove a problem at all, as everything was dealt with efficiently by phone and email with no fuss at all. It is never a pleasure to arrange a funeral but Finches managed to make the process stress free. Fortunately, we were able to arrange the service for a time when I had recovered.

I would also like to say how much the family appreciated the funeral minister, Mark Nichols, who conducted the ceremony and was recommended by Maks at Finches. Mark hit the right balance with the ceremony and we felt it went as well as we could have hoped.

Based on my dealings with Finches I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Response from E Finch & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. We have been working hard to maintain our high standards of care in these challenging times and it's great to know that we succeeded in doing so. 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.

Claire and the team have been brilliant supported me every step of the way when dealing with the funeral. She organized the webcast and the music at the chapel as well. When we visited mum in the chapel the team gave us as much time as we needed and we never felt rushed. Claire was our funeral director on the day and it was a lovely service. Massive thank you to Claire, Max and all the team.

Your Aldershot staff were exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble even when we had last minute requests. They were happy for us to design the funeral as we wished will an excellent celebrant. They helped to get our service card just right (several changes weren’t too much trouble). They submitted our slide show to Wesley media company. As we had a lot of elderly family and family abroad I wanted them to watch online, I was sceptical thinking it would be hard to set up and watch for people, not good quality and really expensive. I was wrong on all counts. My dad’s sister 85 got a neighbour set up the service and left her to watch. We sent ahead the service card she said she sang along, and felt like she was there with us. Everyone watching on online said it was a lovely service. The service on the day was lovely and relaxed. I wish to thank all Finch’s staff who made it possible especially the man principally in charge of our funeral he was available when needed too make a difficult time easier. Thank you.

I can not thank all here enough for their help at this very sad time on the death of my 57 yr old husband
From collecting from our home and helping remove his wedding ring to visiting him in the chapel of rest. All was done with care and attention. Nothing was a problem.
Clare was amazing from our first visit to the funeral it’s self made the day feel so special I was proud of the day and so very happy with the service of all staff.

Our family has always used Finch and Sons, Aldershot. We are always confident that our loved one will be treated with care and respect and the service has always been excellent. We entrusted our mother to their care in August and were confident that everything would be taken care of, and it was. This meant that we could spend our time remembering our mother and not have to worry about the funeral arrangements. The Directors were excellent, well informed, empathetic and present but discrete on the day. We would not go anywhere else. We highly recommend E Finch and Sons.
