We used Phillips for my father's funeral arrangements in July this year. After ringing three Funeral Directors' we found Katrina, Luke, Judy and James at Phillips to be exceptionally professional and caring. From start to finish, my family and I received a first class service not only for my dad but to us in a really difficult and sad time. Our friend also recommended Phillips, having used the Harpenden Branch.

Everything we requested was done and the attentiveness on the day of the funeral, we could not have asked for more. From the beautifully prepared Order of Service, to being able to see how well our dad was cared for in the Chapel of Rest and being able to have our request to walk behind the hearse up the road where my dad lived, allowed us to give my dad the send off he deserved.

I cannot thank the personnel at Phillips enough and would certainly recommend them.

When my mum sadly passed away the lovely staff at Phillips showed such respect and care and made sure that the day was as stress free as it could be, they were very professional from day one.

I found your representative very helpful and very pleasant. She was able to provide all the information I required and assist with every detail of the planned funeral for my Mother, providing confirmation of each element of the arrangements.
On the day of the funeral, the undertakers were very organised and helpful, and assisted with the flowers and the service itself really professionally. Everyone at Phillips was respectful and considerate - all much appreciated.

Nothing was too much trouble for Katrina in the office nor the driver and attendants at the funeral. The gentwho took the service was wonderful too. We could not have wished for more. If there is ever a “good” funeral in these troubled times then my husband had one.

I am glad you chose Phillips Funeral Directors to take care of your Husband and that the final wishes were carried out to the highest standard.

We have used Phillips on a previous occasion, so the choice of Funeral Directors was easy. We met with "K.S" on Tuesday, 12th November at your Alma Road premises. She dealt with us with sensitivity and understanding and took us carefully through all the necessary arrangements. We left with all the information we needed, but it was good to know that "K.S" was at the end of the phone should we have further queries, which were dealt with most efficiently.

I also had a call from "K" who was leading the funeral for my Aunt, to check that we were happy with what had been arranged, and ran through the Order of Service, music, etc. He also called the day after the funeral to ensure that everything had gone according to plan, which it had.

Thank you Phillips.

All aspects of my husbands funeral were covered with promptness, sensitivity and professionalism. The service available was carefully explained at an initial meeting along with an accurate quotation. Suggestions were made as to how to decide on music and examples for the order of service were shown giving us some ideas. A lovely vicar was engaged for us who put together a beautiful service. On the day of the funeral I received a phone call verifying my wishes for the flowers, timing ran like clock work, and after the funeral the undertaker even handed me the cards from the flowers. Nothing could have been done any better and we all felt cared for and looked after. My sincere thanks to everybody involved

Phillips in Marshalswick supported our family very professionally with care, sensitivity and understanding so as to provide the most suitable funeral for our dad. They took care of everything from the initial phone call out of office hours to one meeting to discuss details of the service we wanted and then the funeral itself. On the day it ran seamlessly and felt completely tailored to our requests and needs. Thank ypu Phillips.

We found Phillips Funeral Directors to be very friendly, supportive, compassionate and efficient.
Guiding and helping us through the process at a difficult time.
On the day of my mother’s funeral, the weather was extremely poor. There was always a member
of staff with an umbrella to help us to and from the limousines.
When the pallbearers turned having placed the coffin, they did so as one with almost military precision.
Small points I know, but I offer them as symptomatic of a very good and efficient service.
I can without hesitation recommend Phillips Funeral Directors.
