    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.

    Our fathers funeral was sensitively and professionally dealt with by Chantelle at Metcalfe Funeral Directors in Tring. We were very happy with the service which went very smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about anything, the director on the day was fantastic.
    We would highly recommend them.
