At a difficult time the staff at Powell's could not have been kinder and although very professional they were so friendly and caring. Nothing was too much trouble and any queries were dealt will immediately. The order of service was beautiful and everyone from the staff in the office to the pall bearers were incredible. Grateful thanks to them all. A hard day was actually a lovely celebration.

All the staff at Powell Funeral Directors Ware were caring, thoughtful and extremely helpful. They were our obvious choice when we lost our dear Mum as we had used their services in the past. From the the planning stage to the day of Mum's Celebration they were always ready to offer advice and guidance. We would strongly recommend them to other families.

I have recently used Powell Funeral Directors to arrange my husband’s funeral and the service I received was excellent. Richard was the person who dealt with the arrangements and answered any queries I had. On the day Richard and his colleagues kept me informed as to what was happening and gave me time to speak to people before moving onto the cemetery. A professional and personal service was given by Richard and his colleagues which was appreciated on this difficult day and I would highly recommend them.

I felt we were treated with extreme kindness in a difficult time. We were encouraged to contact Powell’s if we had any questions or we wanted to change anything, this was easy to do. The florist they recommended did a lovely job and Jane who took the service, for mum, was so good at her job. We really don’t know how she got the life story of mum so spot on just listening to us rambling on about our memories. I really can’t thank them all enough for the wonderful send off they gave my mum.

Thank you for the love and care you provide. This is the 3rd time I have personally used Powell. I am always recommending them to family’s I work with with for there loved ones when the time comes. I requested mark this time as he was so wonderful at my mums funeral 2 years ago and again this time provided a loving, dignified and professional service at a time when things are difficult and my friends only family all being in Australia could not come over for the funeral. Many thanks again.
