The service at Beestons was amazing, after I lost my mum I didn’t know what to do and Julie helped me arrange all the funeral along with Vicky who came out and sat with me and my dad to go through the service.
When ever I phoned there was always someone to help me, Julie phoned me a couple of times to see how I was coping and give her support.
Vicky done the service and she was so kind, she showed so much love and respect towards my mum and that ment so much to me.
I can not thank all the the staff there for looking after my mum before the funeral and always being there for me and my family. Thank you

The service, help and care Julie and the staff gave us was absolutely brilliant.

Everything was carefully explained and we were given any guidance we needed, together with helpful suggestions.

Communication was excellent with ourselves and with Kelly. We couldn’t have asked for anymore, our expectations were exceeded.

We very much appreciate the efforts made by everyone involved at this upsetting and difficult time.

My father had a prepaid plan with Beestons at Shirley Warren. From the first contact with them Kayla was professional, knowledgeable & supportive. Nothing was too trivial or too much bother and she guided us through our options with empathy . There was plenty of contact in the run up to the funeral and on the day itself everything was as we wanted it. Again Jackie treated us with respect and patience especially as my 90 year old mother was very slow. Everything was dignified and extremely well organised and helped a difficult day go well.

I cannot rate Julie high enough - she was my Funeral Director and was an absolute godsend at the lowest time for me and my family - nothing was too much trouble and she went out of her way to help and guide us through it all.

Beestons in Southampton we’re the funeral directors for my father’s recent funeral. I cannot thank them enough for the way that they assisted our family from start to finish. Julie was our representative from there and she was superb from start to finish, explaining everything so clearly and keeping us informed at every stage. I am so glad we had them for what is always a difficult time. Outstanding service for which we are so grateful for

Throughout the arrangement of my Mum’s funeral with Beestons Funeral Directors we were supported by Julie.
Julie was our rock at that difficult time. She was patient, kind and thoughtful, helping us to make good decisions about matters that we hadn’t thought of or considered. Julie maintained excellent communication with us without pressure but ensured that everything was done in timely fashion.
I found Julie to be very friendly and understanding with a lovely sense of humour without frivolity.
Mum’s coffin was, to say the least, decorated in an unusual(?) way but important to her wishes. Julie had the foresight and kindness to take photos of it which she gave to us providing a poignant memory for us.
I’m sure that Julie is supported by other staff who I didn’t meet and I am very grateful to them for their service behind the scene.
Thank you very much Julie and Beestons.

I found all the staff to whom I spoke to be professional, helpful and understanding. Charlene, with whom I had most contact, was caring and sympathetic, whilst maintaining her professionalism. She was friendly, patient and gave me time to decide on what I wanted. She put me in contact with a fabulous Celebrant. All the staff at the funeral service were immaculately dressed, professional and approachable. The only thing which could have been improved was the weather, which was wet and windy!

From the very first point of contact with Beestons my family and I were treated with dignity and caring and all the paperwork and arrangements were made easy by both Megan (Shirley Warren) and Julie (Woolston) who could not have done enough to make Dad's funeral perfect. Beestons also performed my Mother's funeral 5 years ago so I knew they would do Dad proud. Everything went perfectly and Beestons made a difficult time much easier. I can't thank them enough.

We have been very sympathetically dealt with without excessive condolence but with great kindness. Mum had a prepaid funeral package which was a great blessing taking a lot of the difficult decisions away from us.
Throughout the service has been efficient,we were kept up to date and consulted whenever necessary. We were so grateful for the delicacy shown when we needed an open coffin for a catholic service in the chapel of rest and that we were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble!
The service at the crematorium went without hitch.
I can highly recommend Beestons Funeral Directors.
