My sisters and I are very happy at the personal service given to us by Matthew when arranging out mother’s funeral. Nothing was too much trouble and Matthew made the whole experience as easy as possible with his attention to detail and continual help and assistance at a very sad time. We are very grateful and cannot thank Matthew enough.
