Faultless! With the loss of our Mum, my sister, brother and I were lost having never arranged a funeral before. We contacted Powell's and immediately, what we thought could be complicated, became uncomplicated thanks to the support of the Powell's team. All the staff were extremely respectful, genuine and thoughtful. They listened intently to our requirements at a very difficult and sad time. They arranged everything for us, including the recommendation of a Celebrant, who from a single visit created a beautiful eulogy. With their help and support it allowed us to step back and deal with our grief and that of our extended family. The whole team provided a truly amazing and professional service. My family would have no hesitation in recommending Powell Funeral Directors.

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.
