I have no hesitation in rating the service at Hertford Powell funeral directors as 5*. From the time that my dad was picked up from the home and a poem left on his pillow, to the courteous, professional service in telephone calls and visits, to the 'unexpected extra' at the end of the service. Even holding up the service for a few minutes to enable a very elderly friend to attend. I am so grateful and could not have wished for better service.

We were more than happy with the service provided by Andrew. He talked us through everything we needed to know and do and was at the other end of the phone to answer all our questions. He was polite, understanding and considerate throughout. On the day of the funeral he was kind and helpful and made sure everything ran smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended. Thank you Andrew.

My partner wished for a simple but dignified funeral. Mr A Powell of Powell Funeral Directors, part of the Dignity Funeral Service group gave Gregory exactly what he had wished for. Andrew Powell personable service was second to none. Andrew organised everything, crematorium, flowers and brought Gregory home in the hearse before going on to the crematorium as I had wished for. The hearse was beautifully presented, the whole proceedings I will remember as being a dignified and peaceful day.
