Absolutely overwhelmed by the service we received - Jo was amazing. She took on board all of our requests, and behaved professionally and sensitively at all times. She went over and above to ensure that mum's funeral was perfect. Thank you!

I would wholeheartedly recommend Bayley Brothers to anyone who has to organise a funeral. The organisation of my husband’s funeral was faultless from beginning to end. Communication was first class and all staff concerned were kind, helpful, respectful and empathetic. An extremely difficult time was made so much easier by Bayley Brothers.

Rating 5.0
On the sad occasion of my mothers death making the funeral arrangements seemed daunting, but with the help of the staff at Bayley Brothers everything was very easy and efficient. Jo who dealt with us was was very sympathetic and compassionate but also very efficient. We felt very looked after. On the day of the funeral in the present circumstances we were guided through everything and it was a lovely service. Tracy phoned the night before to check that we were ok and that if we needed anything we just needed to ask. Thank you so much for everything.

Bayley Brothers provided seamless and sensitive professional support throughout the whole funeral process, keeping us fully informed of options and arrangements at all times. To manage this in the midst of the pandemic restrictions, and largely "remotely" due to both family-locations and our own health-shielding requirements, was no mean feat. A caring, professional service from start to finish,

Excellent in every way. Friendly, understanding and genuine care and advice at a difficult time. No pressure to pay a fortune for products and services we didn't want or need. A very professional yet personal approach that made us feel everything was under control, ahead of, during, and after the event. Thank you.
Response from Bayley Brothers Funeral Directors
Thank you for your 5* review. It means a lot to the team for our clients to be able to share their experiences with us. I am glad that all of your wishes and requirements were carried out by the team as you had requested.
Rating 5.0
The funeral came at a doubly difficult time due to Covid, and I was concerned that it would seem impersonal with so few mourners able to attend. However, Allyson was most helpful, considerate and reassuring, and she arranged for tributes to be given by video. Our celebrant Paul held the service together beautifully, and mourners were able to watch the webcast live, so we felt supported by their virtual presence. Our sincere appreciation to Bayley Brothers.
Response from Bayley Brothers Funeral Directors
