At such a difficult time and being ill myself the support and care were outstanding from the team. The professionalism and dignity and respect could not be faulted at all in such difficult circumstances that Covid-19 presented. Myself and my two sons cannot thank you enough.
Response from R Metcalfe Funeral Directors

I would just like to record my appreciation for the wonderful service provided by the team at Metcalfe following the sad death of my mother, Winifred Davies. Charlie was most considerate and helpful with all matters and his guidance ensured that the funeral went smoothly and in a most dignified way while Katie's professional management of the administration ensured that there were no problems at all.

It was very fortunate that we found Metcalfe Funeral Directors on the night my husband passed away. My son looked online for a local funeral service and chose to speak to Metcalfe in Tring, Hertfordshire. My son was very impressed with the response he got when he telephoned, the person he spoke to was both very friendly and sympathetic to the situation and advised what would happen next. From that day on we had so much help and advice from all the staff especially Charlie and Chantelle. I have never known such beautiful funeral service as was on the day of my husband’s burial in November. Carole, the funeral director herself spoke to me afterwards and this was so nicely done.
I give thanks to the pall bearers and their respectful presence whilst the service was in progress, it was a very cold day. I heard someone remark that is was the best funeral they had ever been to. I can only give my greatest thanks to these wonderful people, they seem to get everything right.
Response from R Metcalfe Funeral Directors
It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. We know how special each person is and aim to convey this in all aspects of our work from the arrangements to the day of the service.

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.
