An excellent service from Sarah and her team at Bitterne / Woolston.

She was very professional and enabled the whole process to run smoothly and without any problems. The family will be always very grateful.

I would strongly recommend Beestons / RC Payne to anyone in the future.

We could not have been happier with the service Julie provided during the entire process of arranging my Mum's funeral. From the advice she gave us prior to it happening to the personal requirements we had for the funeral itself, we could not have asked for a better person. She understood and respected our requests during the arrangements and she could not have suggested a better minister for our needs. The entire process was respectful, caring and as stress-free as these things can be and that was all down to Julie. This includes looking after Mum's ashes for several months whilst we decided on her final resting place. We would definitely recommend her and feel the process would not have been the same without her.
