At what was an extremely upsetting time, all the staff were very professional, caring and sympathetic. They took all the stress of arranging a funeral from us and made the process so much easier than I expected. I can't thank them enough. I was so grateful that I have requested Alexander & Dry at Basingstoke to be my nominated funeral director on my own funeral plan. Thank you to all the staff.
Response from Alexander & Dry Funeral Directors

Like most people l was dreading having to make the arrangements for my late fathers funeral, but thanks to the understanding and professionalism of everyone it was not hard as l expected. I cannot thank Laura enough for her help in explaining everything, pointing out all of the choices, explaining the options and supplying tissues. My fathers funeral was exactly what l (and he ) wanted, right down to the simple but beautiful flowers. Thank you once again, Paula Phillips.

Following my Mother's death, Alexander & Dry were exceptional in the way they assisted and advised us during the organisation of the funeral service.
Laura was especially helpful and compassionate in the way she guided us through the process and even delivered various sample order of service sheets to my Father when he could not get out of the house.
During the service itself, Ryan and his team were extremely dignified and correct and ensured the service went so smoothly which helped the family on the day.
All in all, I would like to thank all of the team at Alexander and Dry for the professional way they set up the service and carried it out in a very dignified way.
Thank you

Rating 5.0
Very efficient and professional service which dealt with all our needs. I was particularly impressed with Laura's sensitive approach putting us at ease at a time when we needed support. She obviously processes personal skills, which in my experience in managing staff in industry, cannot be taught in class. She should be considered a credit to the business and an asset to be encouraged by management.

Celebrating Allan’s Life
My husband died at home just before Christmas. All the staff I met from Alexander and Dry were respectful and supportive from that day up right through to the day of the funeral. Guidance and suggestions were gently offered and at no time did I feel rushed to make decisions. We wanted a non-religious service to celebrate his life. Our Celebrant Marie spent a long time with the family and clearly understood exactly our requirements. It could not have been a better choice. On the day, Andrew directed proceedings quietly and efficiently, taking care that all our wishes were carried through. The whole team made this experience so much easier to bear and I am truly grateful for their support.

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.
