From start to finish the staff at Staplefords were there for us at this terrible time. My brother and I could not have wished for a better service and send off for our beloved Dad, right down to the Pompey flag they provided to drape over he's coffin. I cannot praise or thank this company enough.

From our first telephone conversation through to picking up my fathers ashes, the team at Staplefords we’re helpful, efficient ,warm and welcoming.
Our initial meeting to discuss our needs was handled with consideration by Ryan , who went through the options available with great understanding and knowledge as we had to take into account the covid restrictions that were in place at the time. My sister and I asked for recommendations for florists and a minister and the people suggested were again perfect for our needs.
Before and after the service Ryan kept in close contact with us, to insure all our requirements were being met, he even went out of his way to contact the care home where my father had been a resident to see if they could take the funeral flowers, ( we did not want them wasted) he then delivered them. This gave considerable pleasure to the residents who spent a happy few hours distributing them around the home.
We have no hesitation in recommending this firm, and thank them again for their excellent service.

The service provided by Staplefords was absolutely brilliant. Jessie, who looked after us was so professional,caring and sympathetic at all times. He even gave me a bouquet of flowers at the crematorium, which I thought was such a kind gesture. The celebrant, Phillipa, was also such a lovely lady. She brought her little dog to the service, which Monica would have loved. I cannot speak highly enough about the service Staplefords provide.

We used your company for a recent funeral. From the outset Ryan could not have been more helpful. He helped us, and kept us informed every step of the way, including working out a way my husband could get in to the building in his wheelchair to pay his last respects to his mam. We were shown great compassion, respect and dignity. Nothing was too much trouble and on the day of the funeral, Ryan was by our side to ensure everything went smoothly. The gift of flowers was also very much appreciated.

My sister and I were more than satisfied with our Father’s Funeral and we were particularly touched by Jessie arranging to lay a RAF flag on Dad’s coffin as Dad was not a flower person and it would have looked rather bare otherwise.
