We thank you for the care and attention given to myself and my family on the occasion of my late husbands funeral. It was done with compassion and thoughtfulness of everyone involved and was all that we hoped it would be.

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
