    Staff ensured everything went smoothly from start to finish. This is my second funeral with Bayley Bros this year, the first during ‘the beast from the East’, nothing was too much trouble. Great communication with Ian and the team ensured a good send off.

    Bayley Brothers in Hereford conducted my mother's funeral a few weeks ago. They were compassionate, efficient, helpful and excellent in every way. The funeral went ahead perfectly with reverence and efficiency. I would thoroughly recommend Bayley Brothers. Our main contact with them was Lewis who was excellent. Paul and John also but they had a smaller role. I have no hesitation in recommending them. Five star service.

    I would like to THANK all of you for providing my Mom Val Carney with the funeral that she wanted. You made myself and my family feel relaxed when we came to organise it. It was a very sad time but nice that we could smile at the same time. My mom had some funny ways and it was perfect the way you organised her final journey. If she had organised it herself, she couldnt of asked for more. My moms brother and sister both said it was just right and thats exatley what they want when its their turn. Paul Kingstone was lovely, I felt I had known him all my life and that he had known my mom personally. I cannot fault anything, and I cannot THANK YOU enough, but I will try
    THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH

    This is the text of a letter I have already sent to Bayley Brothers:
    I wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you and your staff for the services you provided for my mother’s funeral.
    The funeral itself went very well, and was viewed by everyone as a fitting and moving ceremony. The pallbearers – two sons and four grandsons – appreciated the help we received. Paul Kingston did an excellent job as celebrant (I have already written to him expressing our appreciation). My nephew and I went to see my mother on the day before the funeral, and we were most touched by how peaceful and cared-for she looked. The arrangements all worked well in the chapel, allowing us all to focus on the ceremony.
    Thank you for being so professional and sensitive at a difficult time for the family. It was most appreciated.

    However,
    The phone call I received from Dignity asking me for my feedback was obnoxious. I have no problem being asked for feedback, but do not see why I should be asked security questions or be told that the phone call is being recorded. This is not the fault of the person making the call, but is the result of a deplorable script. A simple question: "Would you mind filling in an on-line survey?" would have been quite sufficient.
    And you should ask whether or not the feedback I provide can be used in your marketing, rather than making it a condition of filling in the survey. You presume too much.

    Mum passed away in a care home some distance from our home town. She was collected very quickly and by the time I got to Bayley Brothers on the morning of her passing she was already with them. I found this so comforting that someone had gone for her before the sun had risen. With all my families dealings with these funeral directors we were treated kindly and promptly, our every wish being taken into consideration. Everything was explained and we were guided along through the process very professionally, it was a pleasure working with them.

    I would like to thank Lewis and the team at Hereford for their help with my mothers funeral. The service they provided was outstanding. We found them helpful, friendly, understanding, and above all professional. Nothing was to much trouble, and no detail overlooked. Lewis was always available with advice and direction, which we appreciated at this sad time. Lewis and the team are a credit. Thank you again. Andy.
