We can’t praise Metcalfes highly enough. At a very low time of your life when you are also probably exhausted physically, there is so much red tape and Metcalfes really were incredibly supportive, guiding us through all the necessary decision making gently and tactfully. All the staff with whom we had contact went that extra mile even though our father died during a holiday period when so many organisations had shut down. For us, the process didn’t stop with the funeral as Metcalfes have continued to support and advise us with meeting our father’s wishes for the disposal of his ashes. Our thanks to everyone.

The service we received from Metcalfe Funeral Directors in Tring was faultless.
The gentleman we saw for our initial meeting was polite, compassionate and reassuring. He was very knowledgeable and gave us all the advice and help we required at a very difficult time. This made the whole process of planning our Mother’s funeral far less traumatic than we’d imagined.
We opted to visited Mum in the Chapel of Rest at the funeral home and the lady in charge of this showed amazing respect for the deceased and for my daughter and I who went to visit. We were feeling a little distressed and obviously very sad but she was brilliant. She was extremely kind and patient and explained in detail what we should expect In the Chapel. As we’d never gone through a similar experience before she made us feel more comfortable and calm to make that final visit.
On the day of the funeral everything went like clockwork. Everything we’d arranged and discussed was put into place. It was perfect and as lovely as this sad situation can be. The Funeral Director and Pallbearers were respectful and patient.
Thank you to everyone at Metcalfe’s who shared our final farewell recently.
I cannot recommend your services highly enough.
