I couldn’t thank Powell funeral Directors enough. From start to finish everyone helped us to give my Dad the send off he deserved. Special thank you to Jackie and Graham Ellis

Excellent service from the moment we contacted you. The dignity and care and the respectful way they collected our Mother from the care home was amazing as with the staff Jackie and Debbie helping to arrange the funeral which made the process so much easier for us. Everything went so smoothly on the day Simon and co were so patient and so dignified leading the procession right to the end. We are so pleased we chose Powells and would certainly recommend you. The celebrant Jane was amazing too she did a fantastic job of the service. Everyone kept coming up and saying how good she was.
Thank you all for everything you made us feel like family.
Kind regards
Lynn Gary and family

From the very first contact with Powells to after my late Father's funeral I was met with understanding, compassion and extremely good advice on all aspects of arranging the funeral.

The ladies at the funeral home were kind, courteous and extremely helpful in the first days after my Dad's death and nothing was too much trouble for them. Without their help, kindness and knowledge I doubt that I would have managed to arrange it in the short time that I did.

The Funeral Director and his team on the day were extremely well briefed and very professional. They too acted with kindness and compassion and ensured that all the little details at the service were taken care off, right down to escorting my elderly mother to her seat.

If I were asked to sum up the service provided by Powell Funeral Directors from start to finish in one word, the word that I would use would be Impeccable.

Both members of staff were welcoming all through the process while arranging my brothers funeral. Stevenage) Not stuffy at all but knew how to comfort and laugh with us. Got a call the night before the funeral from Simon who talked me through how the next day would proceed, could not be more professional. We would all like to thank everyone for the way the staff treated in the sad time we were going through.
