It was the first time we had to arrange a funeral from London for the services to be held in Luton at the church and crematorium. We received excellent, professional and friendly service. Any problems/questions we had were answered to our satisfaction. Nothing was too much trouble and would like to thank the funeral director allocated to act for us and for everyone at Phillips Funeral Services, St Albans branch for their help. Would recommend Phillips Funeral Services.

I would like to thank David Hall & the rest of the Phillips Funeral Service team for the very professional & compassionate level of service provided after my wife sadly passed away recently.

From my first call to Phillips, David & his team were always understanding, patient (I made a number of late requests which were accommodated) & compassionate in arranging for her collection from hospital,funeral mass at church & subsequent cremation.

This was a very stressful & challenging time for me & my family but was made much easier by the positive & professional actions of David & the Phillips team throughout.
