At such a sad time we found all staff at Finch & Sons very compassionate, friendly and helpful as they guided us through each stage of what was a new experience. We would definitely recommend them to others. We would also recommend having a Funeral Plan in place as all financial problems were erased and onerous tasks like choosing the coffin etc were removed from the process.

Shaneen at Finch’s was extremely professional from the very first meeting I had with her.
She arranged everything to my specifications and kept in touch with me regularly throughout the whole process. It was reassuring to have her overseeing the actual funeral which all went according to plan. I cannot praise her and the company highly enough for dealing so wonderfully with me at a very difficult time.
Response from E Finch & Sons Funeral Directors

We used Finches of Aldershot. My Grandmother sadly passed away and I can honestly say from the moment Shaneen and the team walked into the house to the minute we said goodbye to my Nan. We couldn't ask for a more respectful, curtious service, Shannon shows the upmost respect and support you honestly couldn't ask for a better representative to support you through such a sad, difficult and emotional time.
Response from E Finch & Sons Funeral Directors

Thank you for the exceptional service we received. The team went above our expectations with providing such a personal services.

Having never arranged a funeral before we were unsure how to process everything. You made sure we understood ever option we had and explained everything so we were fully aware of what would happen. The horses with the yellow feathers and carriage was beautiful. We felt welcome and looked after from start to finished.

We will be forever grateful for your help in making mums send off as special as she deserved.

The help, guidance and service levels provided by Max and his colleagues took a lot of the stress and anxiety relating to the preparations for and the day of the funeral for which the family are very grateful. The funeral went without a hitch and the family would not hesitate to fully recommend Dignity and E Finch & Sons.

Finches have been around since I was a child and maybe even before. I was born in the sixties. It was a natural choice to call upon them when the time came to organise my partners funeral.I had face to face contact with both Ian and Claire before the service and both were knowledgeable and compassionate and ensured that the service was personalised just as we wanted it. On the day of the funeral Ian was leading the day and everything went just as we wanted it to be. I would recommend anybody to use Finches.

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).
Response from E Finch & Sons Funeral Directors

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
