    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

    Alexander and Dry have now conducted 4 funerals for my family and my wife and I have funeral plans in place with them.
    We have not had any issues with them and do highly recommend them as they will go the extra mile to make sure every thing goes smoothly and to do what the family wants.
    All the staff are very good and as i said do all that they can to make sure all goes well.
