I can't speak highly enough of Claire who helped me with the arrangements for my husband's funeral. Even though we were covered by a funeral plan insurance, there were a number of other issues which needed to be addressed and she couldn't have been more helpful. Could I also congratulate the pall bearers who were faced with an enormous flower arrangement to go on the coffin which must have added considerably to the weight! I would recommend E Finch & Sons without hesitation.

We would like to thank you for the excellent organisation of our mother's funeral, Mrs. Jean Goodchild on the 6th August.
At the initial meeting you outlined all the required arrangements that you would undertake and offered advise to all of our requests.
The funeral was faultless with you in the background guiding us through a sad and difficult day. We would confidently recommend your services.
Thank you again, from Barry Goodchild (Son), Jennifer King (Daughter) and all our families and friends

Ashleigh from E Finch &Sons in Aldershot arranged the funeral for my friend, Ashleigh was very kind and caring, she guided us through the whole process and was very knowledgable, patient and understanding with our questions and requests. She clearly explained the types and costs involved with all the funerals they arrange. We told Ashleigh we were on a small budget and that we could not pay all the costs up front. E Finch & Sons are prepared to wait for their costs to be paid after we have finalised the probate. This was a great relief at this time. There was no hard sale to us and we felt comfortable talking about our departed friend's wishes for her funeral.

Ashleigh gave us a catalogue of flower arrangements to look at which helped us make up our mind what arrangement we thought would be right and fitting.

Ashleigh arranged for Pastor Dick Fawn to contact us to conduct the funeral. He was very understanding, friendly and easy to talk to. He arranged the order of service and all songs and prayer's requested. He was very kind, organised and professional and gave our friend a very nice respectfull send off.

I would like to say that both E Finch & Sons Collegues and Pastor Dick Fawn provided the funeral and celebration of my friends life exactly as she wished.

From the moment we had contact with Finch and Sons, our family have been treated with dignity, respect and compassion. The send off you gave Mike was wonderful.
Hannah was approachable and personable, she was patient and kind towards us, enabled us space to plan and shape the funeral in the way we wanted but was on hand to take whatever pressure she could.
As a family we will always be so grateful to you all.
