As a family our world was turned upside down by the sudden loss of our father, but Dignity was on hand to walk us through this sad time by arranging for R C Payne &Son Funeral Directors to help us.
Miss C was most helpful and helped us arrange the perfect send off for our beloved dad. No detail was overlooked. Dad was a D Day veteran and we wanted a union flag on the coffin as there was to be a representative from the Royal Marine’s present to play the last post. On the day Miss C even arranged for the pull bearer’s to be ex military men Which was a really nice gesture. Every step of the way we were treated with compassion and respect and nothing was too much trouble. As a family in mourning we would like to thank everyone at Dignity and R C Payne’s for all their help.

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.
