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. Elyse in particular was amazing, such a kind hearted woman and can’t thank her enough for her support.

Myself daughters and son found Elyse who we first met at the funeral parlour very informative helpful and quietly understanding of our stress at such a sad time for us.
Extremely helpful putting the service book together even though I asked for extra additions,
We also had recommended an excellent kind caring Celebrant who conducted an excellent service for us
We expressed a wish that being so close to the Cemetery could it be arranged for family and close friends to walk in the Road the few hundred yards following the hearse to the cemetery chapel.
This was arranged for us, and so much appreciated by all in attendance a very sad day but one to be remembered. So on behalf of my family Thanks to all the kindness shown by staff.

Professional and caring. Every person from Powells who was involved in my late fathers funeral was kind and sympathetic. The young lady in the Hoddesdon office Elyse is full of kindness and empathy. The celebrant was excellent. I really can not find any reason to fault the professionalism of the staff. Thank you to everyone

Excellent care throughout a very sad time. Elyse was fantastic making sure everything ran smoothly.
This is not the first time I have used Powell’s and would highly recommend them to anyone trying to decide which funeral directors to use. Richard ensured everything ran smoothly on the day which made a very sad day easier to bear.

The service we got from Powell’s was second to none. From start to finish they where professional and caring. We was made to feel at ease and comfortable. And it was great that we never felt we was being up sold the service. We asked for easy and simple and that was what we got.
The registrar that Powell’s put us in touch with was a great choice. She made use feel as if she had known my brother for some time. And when we surprised her with a additional reading on the day she was very accommodating.
So all in all a very professional service and I would recommend Powell’s anytime.
