    The service received from R.C. Payne for my mother's funeral was exceptionally high. We dealt with Glynn who was always warm, friendly and approachable. Nothing was too much trouble and at each step of the way leading up to the funeral date he kept us informed and was thoroughly efficient in a caring manner. He dealt with the obituary announcement, arrangements for order of service and charitable donations etc. Everything was faultless and Glyn also referred us to an Orator for the actual service. He listened to our requirements and held the service specifically tailored to our wonderful Mum. We "did her proud" thanks to R.C.Payne and people commented on how touching the funeral service was. We cannot praise them highly enough.
