I can’t fault the service here; it was exactly what we needed. I called on the morning of my Mother’s death and the staff immediately took away my concerns about what was to follow.

Right from the start we received all the information and advice we needed, in a supportive and sympathetic way. Everything was professionally organised and the day of the funeral itself was perfect.

Funerals are not something you get to rehearse so we are very grateful to all the staff for ensuring the day itself was worry free, and one that has left us with good memories of an otherwise very sad day.

From the first phone call to dignity in those difficult early days to meeting Rachel at Carrells, the whole process was made easy for us and we never felt rushed. My dad's funeral was beautiful and had all the little touches he'd asked for, nothing was too much trouble and we feel happy we gave him the perfect send off.

The staff were kind and respectful at all times and nothing was too much trouble for Rachael, she made herself available to us without a moments hesitation. My Brother wished to see Mum and sit with her for a while and due to the weather, was moved to another branch, we were kept up to date and my brother was well supported.
Verity, the celebrate, spent a long time with us and listen to our story of our Mum, and adapted the service the evening before to accommodate my brother brothers wishes, which was so very kind.
Katie, who managed the funeral on the day could not have been more helpful, as was the staff who assisted the family to carry my mother in. All in all, all the staff, including the driver, at Carrells did a grand job,I dont think it could have been done better any where else.
Response from Carrells Funeral Directors

The Service we received from Carrells when planning my aunt funeral was second to none. Rachael was both sympathetic and efficient in guiding us through the arrangements and oversaw that everything we requested was carried out. It made what could have been difficult time a lot less stressful.
I have since recommended Carrells to other family members.

Rachel at the Carrells Havant Office was always helpful in helping us organize my mothers funeral in Feb 2022, from getting the flower tributes delivered to the church to arranging for the church verger to have the music CDs ahead of the service. From the point of first contact on the passing of my mother, my family were treated in a courteous and professional manner at all times.
Rebecca, who led the funeral on the day, also led the funeral for my father eight years ago. The funeral was conducted in a dignified manner throughout and for which We want to extend our thanks.

When I lost my mum,she had a plan with Dignity,and I was given 3 funeral homes to go with,I chose Carrells, Iam so glad I did. As I live in Basingstoke Carrells was happy for everything to be sorted over the phone and email,nothing was too much,always called or emailed me back,and even on day of the funeral,they came and found me to introduce themselves to me,everyone at the funeral said it was beautiful,all staff was lovely and portchester crematorium is beautiful. Carrells funeral home is definitely worth choosing at a very sad time.

The service from Carrells was really very good. From our first encounter with Rachel who guided us through the whole process to Helen who looked after us at the Service. The end to end care from Carrell's made a very difficult journey more bearable. Words such as respectful, caring, thoughtful and sincere come to mind. Thank you.

Very pleased with the whole experience. As a package had been paid for and discussed in the family we were aware of what was wanted, which was an enormous help. The staff were very supportive and informative and helpful through out the planning stage and the actual day. Everything went smoothly and as we wanted and helped what was a emotional time, now remembered as a happy day of celebration for a life.

Will be sorting out mine in the same way to avoid my children having to make too many decisions at a stressful time.

From start to finish Rachel from Carrells Funeral Directors has been excellent. Everything was thought of and we were helped and guided each step of the way with great care and compassion. This made a difficult time so much easier for us. There were so many little touches that I felt went above and beyond, from the memory book and framed picture to flowers for us. On the day Jamie from Carrells rang to make sure everything was in place and timings were all still okay, the care and reverence my Mum was still receiving from them all was very touching. I would recommend Carrells to everyone at a time when you need care & support they offer it in abundance.

I have only praise for the service and dedication of the staff of Carrell's. We were treated with complete dignity and humanity from beginning to end and every little point was discussed and covered in the preparations beforehand. The service was really very special and as a family we thank all the staff concerned and the celebrant, Mr. Martin Grace, but a particular thank you must go to Rachel for her kindness and consideration throughout the whole process.

As the one amongst my siblings nominated to take charge of the funeral arrangements for our Mother, I really appreciated the guidance from Rachel through every step of the way from even before taking Mother's remains into care. Every detail, most of which would create stress for an already grieving relative was discussed and taken care of such as ordering printing work, flowers, Funeral notice, charity donations, etc. There were even thoughtful little touches after the funeral when Jamie, who was Director on that occasion, came discreetly over to me with flowers, a framed copy of our mother's photo and other small tokens of remembrance now shared among my siblings. Mother's funeral was set up back in 2005 leaving us with a folder containing everything we needed to know and the minutest detail of what we needed to think about and act on from a legal and financial viewpoint. It has inspired us all to make similar arrangements as soon as practical for our own funerals so that our children will find an otherwise painful time made so much easier.
Response from Carrells Funeral Directors
We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and being open with us about the service we provided. I hope that our team has provided you with some comfort through this challenging time and that you had the trust and confidence in our team to be able to provide the service you requested.

Yesterday’s funeral was flawless however I wanted to particularly mention the very dignified way in which the cortège team conducted the day.

Jamie was a credit to the company and made things much easier for us on such a hard day, nothing was rushed, everything was dignified and we felt we were in the very best of hands.

We noticed very gratefully Rachels own tribute, leaving the office and standing on the corner, bowing as we passed by.

It was so nice to have Paige there who saw us through from the very start of this process.

The flowers, picture and memory box were a very welcome addition.

We can’t thank you enough for your trusted professionalism and outstanding care.
Response from Carrells Funeral Directors
