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.
Response from Carrells Funeral Directors
Your feedback is so valuable to us and we would like to say thank you. I am pleased that we were able to look after you and your family at this difficult time.

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.

The process couldnt have been made any easier with the help of Carrells. I have not had to arrange a funeral before but it was made easy and respectful and everything went to plan and as well as we could have hoped for to celebrate the life of my father. Thank you

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.

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
We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after. We have been working hard to maintain our high standards of care in these challenging times and it's great to know that we succeeded in doing so.

I would just like to say a few words about your staff at Carrells in Havant…..

We first came to Carrells back in 2015 when my dad passed away and you did an amazing job. I was not as involved with this as my mum was still around. Carrells then arranged my aunts funeral and now on Friday 6th November sadly my mum’s funeral arrangements.
I came in to meet Rachael and Paige with my two brothers (this was eventful – because of one of them!) and could not have been made more welcome and put at ease by Rachael who was also training Paige at the time. I think we were her Guinea pigs! – not a great bunch to start her training with – but as she has told me she has seen and heard worse!
Their kindness and warmth shone through.
I have been dealing mainly with Paige and just wanted to let you know what an absolute asset to Carrells she is. She has been helpful, caring, understanding (with brother issues) and most of all just an absolute gem. Going above and beyond in being there for us as a family and just making the whole experience as stress free as she could. Having her there on the day with us as a family just made the day even better.
We also met Jamie on Friday and again what an absolute gent.
So really just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything, and to let you know that you have an absolutely amazing team at Havant Carrells – The Dream Team (as I have called them).
I also wanted to mention Lee Kewel as well – what an amazing lovely man who again has been involved in my dad’s, aunt’s and finally mums funeral.
The whole team are just amazing

Thank you for entrusting us with the care of another loved one. The continuity of care is something we are proud of and we know what a difference it makes to the families in this time of need. Your kind words mean a great deal to the team who always work very hard to deliver great care and I am happy that they were able to support you through the arrangements with ease.

My family and I could not be happier with the service we received from Carrells for my dear Nanna’s funeral. From the first phone call our contact put our minds at rest that we would receive the best quality and care and she did not disappoint! Great care was taken to ensure that we had the type of funeral that my Nanna would have wanted, which was a celebration of life rather than a formal affair. All queries were responded to in good time and we were reassured throughout the planning process. After our contact getting to understand what we wanted she assigned our Celebrant, who could not have been more perfect! Because of Covid I am aware that house visits to the family were not as commonplace, but she was determined to meet my 104-year-old grandad and husband of 78 years to ensure she got everything perfect on the day…. And she so did!! I had gathered some information and readings which were a bit disjointed and se had re-written to flow beautifully with all the content still there painting a beautiful picture of my Nanna’s vibrant and talented life. Our appointed Director on the day again was reassuring, caring and thoughtful. Thank you to the whole team in the background too that I dint get to meet. A stressful sad day made beautiful.

I could not fault the care and attention that was given to us by Jamie and Rachel. They were wonderful and a credit to your company. They listened to us and understood our feelings of sadness and helped with suggestions when we were unsure. The farewell to my husband Charles Earles was lovely especially in these times. Thank you to them. Jean Earles
