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.

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.

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.

Thank you to them all.
