I cannot thank Powells enough for making the whole process so easy for me at a time when I needed their help and guidance.
The lady in their office and the attendant on the day were most helpful and ensured that everything went as the family wanted on the day.
I would certainly recommend them to others in the future.

The attention to detail and care we received was fantastic at a difficult time for us. Debbie was calming and reassuring and arranged everything we asked for. We were treated with respect and dignity by all involved before and during the funeral and for this we thank you all.

Our family have no hesitation in recommending Powell Funeral Directors. They were kind and respectful at all times, guiding us through the whole process and enabling us to give our dad the send off he deserved. Linda at the Hoddesdon branch was particularly helpful, answering any queries promptly.

It’s tough time when you lose a loved one so I was apprehensive going to a funeral directors and you know it was all made easy for me.

Professional, compassionate. I was able to leave everything in their hands, knowing it would be dealt with and I didn't have to worry about any of the arrangements on the day of the funeral.

From the day my mum passed away, the staff at Powell were very professional, very caring and nothing was to much trouble. Because we were very upset and at the time you do not take in everything you are being told I found I would ring Powell’s with silly questions but they were so lovely and reassuring. Our family cannot thank Powell enough.
Response from Powell Funeral Directors

About 3 years ago I used Powell's following the passing of my father and I was extremely pleased with the service they provided which made me use them again following the recent passing of my partner. I used the Hoddesdon branch for both and I cannot fault the service they provided which for me was excellent. Their staff, besides being helpful in guiding me through the service options, were very caring and supportive given my sad loss especially also the short timescale we had to arrange the service.
Response from Powell Funeral Directors
It is comforting to know that the team were there to support you through this time and relieve some of the pressure through guidance and support.

We found all the staff we had dealings with very helpful as we had to do everything on the telephone living in Suffolk. With COVID restrictions in place we had to rely totally on Powell’s they organised the flowers which were outstanding the service it’s self was perfect. The family would thank all at Powell’s for everything they have done . David Prime

I’d like to thank all members of staff but especially Elise. We were kept up to date with all developments regarding the cremation of our dad and talked through the process from start to finish. As this was the first funeral I’ve had to arrange their kind and caring treatment towards our family was much needed and appreciated. It seems uneasy to recommend a funeral directors for obvious reasons but I hold Powell’s funeral directors in high regard. Thank you everyone.

On behalf of my family and I, we want to thank everyone at Powell Funeral directors, what has been the most difficult time of our lives, we wouldn’t have coped if it wasn’t for their understanding and support.
