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.
