The staff of Finches in Aldershot, in particular, Ian were very caring and compassionate. My husbands' arrival at our house prior to his funeral was very dignified. It was lovely to see him arrive having been walked to the house and then walked from the house until out of our road. There were other times where Ian would walk in front of the hearse and we all found this immensely moving and respectful. In these times of "lockdown", we found all the staff extremely helpful and even though things needed to be done differently we always felt completely assured and confident that things would just flow....... and they did. We will always remember the care and kindness of the staff of Finches Aldershot. Their care made a sad time memorable and more bearable by the very fact of their professionalism combined with compassion. Thank you to you all.

I do not normally give reviews but in this instance I will make an exception, the whole thing was handled so very well
by Maks (whatever your paying him is not enough). Professional and helpful does not go far enough to describe the
way the service was handled. It is the second time we have had to use E Finch and have been very pleased on both occasions and would
recommend them without hesitation.

From the first contact shortly after my father's death, E.Finch supplied exemplary service with great dignity. Maks was very thorough in taking us through the options for the funeral and explaining the Covid restrictions that would apply. Everything went very smoothly on the day and that made a difficult day so much easier to bear. Many thanks to all at E.Finch and I will certainly recommend them to others.

I would highly recommend Finch & Sons and would like to thank Ian and the team for treating our family with compassion, dignity and high degree of professionalism that gave us comfort at a very sad time. Despite the current restrictions, we did manage to say our final farewells to Dad with a dignified ceremony held at the Aldershot Crematorium.

Claire was amazing. She helped us through the whole process, was super understanding, gave us great advice and was such a great help.
The whole process was carried out with such dignity. Visiting the chapel of rest was arranged easily.
The cremation service was absolutely beautiful and went so smoothly.
I cannot thank everyone for their support, help and compassion.

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 continuity of care is something we are proud of and we know what a difference it makes to the families in this time of need.

The staff from the initial phone call to the service itself were incredibly friendly and helpful. This was the first service we have had to arrange fully ourselves and it was made easier with finch and sons. We had some special requests which finch and sons did all they could to accommodate to make the service everything we hoped and wanted. All we can do is thank finch and sons for making one of the toughest days our lives just that little bit easier.
Response from E Finch & Sons Funeral Directors

A brief note to once again thank you and the team at E Finch & Sons and Dignity for all of your support, care and assistance in preparing and officiating my Father’s funeral yesterday. Everything was, as much as possible, stress free and the whole event went off seamlessly due mainly to the professionalism and care of you and your team.
