I recently lost my father and was not sure where to go for his funeral arrangements. He had a payment plan set up with Dignity and a friend recommended Alexander & Dry and I am so pleased that I used them to plan my dads funeral for my family and myself.
From start to finish I was treated with the greatest respect from all the staff I had contact with, special thanks to Alison a lovely kind lady, very professional but approachable.

Alexander and Dry carried out my husbands funeral arrangements with efficiency, and with a great deal of professionalism. They were polite and friendly, leaving myself and family feeling at ease, knowing that on the day, all would run smoothly. We did not need to ring them once with any questions or queries, they were always there informing us of any changes or duties they had carried out promptly. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone

What could have been a very stressful and emotional time was made easy by the wonderful team. They were helpful, considerate, not in the least pushy - no pressure to choose a very expensive package whatsoever. The office where we made arrangements for the funeral were bright and welcoming. The lady who took the details was very friendly and gently guided my daughter and myself through the paperwork and fully explained how things would progress from there to the funeral itself. Inspite of out sadness, we even managed a few laughs when we thought about Mum.

We were kept informed at all stages of the procedure e.g. I was supposed to go in and pick up the invoice. Their computer has stopped working and to save me a fruitless visit, the telephone me and then phoned again a few days later when they were up and running again.

I have nothing but praise and thanks to all the staff for their help and compassion at that sad time
