Reviews of our services
I needed your help again in May this year when my dear husband passed on. And so it was - you were exceedingly kind and understanding of the requirements for him, and Jo and Laura guided me every step of the way. As it turned out, his funeral was perfect in every way (he was a nonbeliever) and you catered for him, and me and my daughter, so nicely.
Our communications and visits were spot on, and I do have to say at this point, how much I miss seeing you all and your friendliness, which meant so much to me and my last surviving child, Rosalind, during those sad weeks.
Many thanks again to all of you for looking after David. You did him, and us, proud. Bless you all.
Everyone around me was sympathetic and those that had been in a similar situation had their own opinion as to whom I should use for the final arrangements.
I have been aware of Alexander and Dry for many years, having passed their offices regularly so I chose to trust them with my Wife.
When I spoke to one of your staff she asked if there was anything specific I wanted for the service.
Fortunately my wife and I had casually discussed our respective funerals over the years. Jo was able to make those ideas a reality. I was pleased at the level of control I had, the layout of the Order of service, the music and even the horse drawn carriage my late wife had dreamt of.
At every stage she was able to advise and assist without ever once sounding like a salesperson.
Obviously there is nothing I can offer by way of comparison, as this is the only time I have ever used a Funeral Director’s services but I can genuinely say that the service provided couldn’t have been bettered.
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.
