  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.

I can’t thank the staff at Cecil Newlings enough from the very start they showed so much compassion & dignity not only to my husband but to our whole family & for that I am truly grateful.

Rating 5.0
Everyone was so helpful from the very first phone call. We were guided through the whole process, at a time when we were feeling so dazed and fragile, with real compassion and patience. Nothing was too much. I always felt I could call and ask any questions. It made a very difficult time just that little bit easier.
Response from Cecil Newling Funeral Directors
Thank you for posting your review online. I am glad we were able to provide you with the support and guidance needed and that It makes a difficult time seem a little easier.
Rating 4.0
Everything was great - I gave 4 instead of 5 stars because we were unable to post a notice in the local paper without paying substantially more than the 'budget' package. The local paper would only let Funeral Directors place a notice, so it was a Catch 22 situation.
Response from Cecil Newling Funeral Directors

Thank you for your 4* review. I am sorry that you were unable to place a notice in the newspaper directly. The local newspaper for the community has previously only accepted notices directly from the funeral director. I have been advised that families can now place their notices directly. The newspaper will set their own prices and terms for funeral notices and I am sorry that you were inconvenienced by this. Thank you once again for your review.
