I found Phillips Funeral Directors totally professional in dealing with my late aunt's funeral , our whole family cannot thank Phillips enough for everything they have done to make a very difficult time much easier to cope with, Phillips Funeral Directors were chosen by my late aunt Mary as they also dealt with her husband's my uncle John's funeral 2 years ago and she expressed to us she wanted Phillips to deal with her funeral when the time came , I wish to express our whole families gratitude for everyone at Phillips compassion and professionalism.

I had used your service in December 2018 when my mother passed away and was totally satisfied with your thoughtfulness and professionalism. My father passed away in June 2019 and I had no hesitation in using you again.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to my family and friends when the time arises and have told my son that I wish you to deal with me when my time comes.
Thank you all for the wonderful service you have shown at both upsetting times.

The team were sympathetic all the way through the process - from first phone contact to the cremation and the follow up service around ashes separation. Cant fault any member of the team. As we needed a double funeral, they may that unusual process seamless, for which we were grateful.
