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

Dealing with a funeral is hard at the best of times but the staff at Powell Hoddesdon branch helped make the experience as easy as possibly, especially Linda who was our initial contact and Simon on the day who was especially attentive and courteous. Our thanks to all the staff involved for making the day as easy as possible.

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.

Elyse and the team at Powells were fantastic and took such good care of my Father. Elyse was always on the end of the phone at my time of need and be funeral was conducted with such dignity. I would highly recommend Powells to friends and family

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.
