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.
Response from Cecil Newling Funeral Directors
Thank you for the kind comments posted on your online review. I am pleased to hear that you found our staff to be professional and respectful and it all went well for you and the family.
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.
