    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.

    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.

    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.
