Reviews of our services
The only hiccup I experienced was the hearse contained not only the flowers for my mother but also flowers for another funeral. Although upsetting at the time, Ryan dealt with this very well, he was apologetic .
The issue with the flowers has been reflected in my scoring.
Many thanks for the bouquet of flowers from your Company, a lovely gesture which won’t be forgotten.
This continued with Rebecca who ensured the funeral went seamlessly as planned.
These two ladies are exceptional and when put together an unbeatable team.
My heart felt thanks for the help given.
I would not hesitate to recommend them.
