Rating 5.0
We first used F C Hughes upon my father's death seven years ago and we're impressed then so on the passing of my mother, it was only natural to use Hughes again. The service received matched that of seven years ago. All our wishes were fulfilled and the whole service was perfect from start to Finnish. We were kept fully informed on all developments and I was impressed with the presentation of the hearse/coffin and flowers on the day. The hard work of J made for a fitting send off.
Response from F C Hughes Funeral Directors
Thank you for the kind comments posted on your online review. I am glad we were able to provide you with the support and guidance needed and that the arrangements for both your Father and Mother were carried out to your satisfaction.
