Everyone was so kind and helpful and very professional at the most difficult time of our lives. Tom and his assistant, Pauline and Andy and everyone on the day were amazing!

I did want to purchase 5 of the small Robin pins for myself and my 4 children but they are only sold in packs of 10. It would be nice if you sold them individually or in smaller packs.
Response from Stowells Funeral Directors
Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear we were unable to provide the small robin pins individually.

Pauline was extremely helpful and understanding in guiding me through the process of organising the funeral. Information was clear and the whole process was dealt with in sympathetic and caring way, in what was a difficult time.
Response from Stowells Funeral Directors

I cannot thank Pauline and her team enough. From start to finish she was fantastic and supportive and made everything run seamless for us.

This is (thankfully) the first time I had ever organised a funeral before and I was so relieved to have, in Pauline someone to confide in and feel supported by.

Her and her team have been a guiding light in what has been some dark, horrible circumstances. Thank you for giving my Dad a special send off. I cannot recommend Stowells highly enough!

She is a wonderful person

Love Tom and Sam :-)

All the staff were excellent and so friendly and helpful. Always available and easy to talk to. Talking us through each stage of what needed to be done and never pushy.
Can’t thank the staff there enough for all their work. At first the pricing structure wasn’t very clear on paper but then was all easily explained on the phone.

Excellent service and very well organised before and on the day plus post Customer Service - we were particularly very pleased with the Park coffin which looked so much better than expected.

As a family, we have used Stowells numerous times in the past. My mother's funeral was conducted superbly two years ago. When my wife sadly passed away just before Christmas 2019 I had no hesitation in calling upon their services once again. Pauline at Stowells was very sympathetic, efficient and knowledgeable. I found that she made what was a challenging situation, for me, much more bearable. The day of the funeral itself went according to plan. The funeral director and his team behaved in a very professional manner throughout. It was their expertise, and care that guided us through what was an emotional time. I would have no hesitation in using Stowells in the future, should the need arise.
Response from Stowells Funeral Directors

right from the start when they collected the deceased body everything was very professional, with just enough sympathy without being overbearing. Alison was very helpful throughout she phoned to say who would be handling the actual funeral and Ryan phoned to introduce himself and to run through the arrangements to make sure everything would be as we wanted .which it was so thank you to everybody involved for making a sad occasion go as well as it could . several of the people who attended the funeral remarked how ¬lovely` it was
