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.
Special things made easy as bringing his flowers home after service and collecting ashes filling urn and bringing it home..
This is the first funeral I have ever had to organise and was so nervous & frightened of what was to happen
Clare helped so much and made me feel calm. the service the children carrying his coffin to my daughter and myself walking behind coffin. I can’t thankyou enough . Xx

Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. It has been an honour to look after you and your loved one and to respond sensitively to your specific needs. We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after.
Rating 5.0
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.

Professional service as always. E Finch & Sons have been with me through many sad times now but they always know exactly what to ask at a really difficult time. They make a difficult process go as smoothly as possible and provide an excellent service from start to finish.

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.
