At a very difficult time and with limited time the staff in office were particularly helpful and understanding. The funeral director on the day was so kind everything went without a hitch, even small details were checked. The celebrant was perfect even though we only met for 2 hours she seemed to know my husband,again she went out of her way to fit in with my limited time, even communicating via email when I was abroad. I cannot speak highly enough of the service and care during and after. Small things like knocking on the Chapel of rest door and telling my husband we were there to visit him, so polite and touching. Thank you all at Baldock.

Crouch's were at all times caring - within two hours of my aunt's death, Steve was on the phone supporting and guiding me without overwhelming me and from that moment I was equally supported and guided by Charley and her team. I would recommend E H Crouch to anyone who finds themselves in the unfortunate position of losing a loved one.

As a family who have just lost their mother it was difficult to deal with the grief let alone the funeral. E H Crouch took care of everything. Every minute detail was looked after without us having to worry. Order of service, burial site, celebrant, flowers. Everything was perfect. Charley has an amazing big heart and great respect. Thank you so much.

From our first visit, Charley and all made it very easy to make the arrangements.
It was so smooth and after our visit we had very little to arrange, they provided a great service, and their professionalism was perfect. It was a very difficult time for us all, and on the day of the funeral their great service continued throughout. We can’t thank them enough, we would certainly recommend them.
Thank you to everyone at E H Crouch. Maria, Steve and Sue.

I found Charlie to be sympathetic & very helpful with a great knowledge of the funeral procedure. She organised my mum’s funeral to the last detail & consequently it went as easy & smoothly as possible, I cannot fault any part of the experience which was a great comfort at this trying time. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone after the way the funeral was handled by yourselves.
Many Thanks,
Regards,
Clifford Brammer.

From the beginning the kindness and compassion given to me by Clare Gallagher has been amazing, nothing was too much trouble and everyone including the st George’s Church and The British Legion worked well together to fulfill my Dad Brian’s wishes to perfection. Your whole team were wonderful and my Dad looked so peaceful and serene when I saw him. There are not enough words to show how thankful I am and how kind and caring you were to me.

You also did the same for my Mum Brenda five years ago, my Nan Ethel 11 years ago and Grandad Ernest 35 years ago. That is my family all gone now, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for looking after them all so well.

A truly professional and caring company, highly recommended Without hesitation - Judi Hewitt
