It is hard to know where to start. We took out a pre-paid funeral plan for both my parents last year. It was an easy process made more so by Kirsty with her support and careful explanation and guidance. The whole process gave my dad real comfort and eased his worries that he had over his funeral arrangements. When my dad died the latter part of february, everything ran smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was kindness itself. The whole of his wishes were met and the eve of his funeral and the day itself was everything he had asked for and more. Every single person we dealt with at Powells was exemplary in their conduct and compassion and caring. I am sorry I do not know all their names to thank them individually , Richard and Kirsty were just fanatastic and to those I can not name but played a part in my dad's funeral- I thank each and every one of you as you are a credit to not only your profession but to yourselves and I can never thank you enough.

Star rating 5 The gentleman that came to my home to take my husband away was kind, polite and caring in every way. When I went to Powells in Ware the lady who dealt with the funeral arrangements was kind and patient with me and when I spoke to her on the phone later. At the funeral all the attendants were professional and arranged everything exactly how I wanted it to be so I don't have any complaints.

I would highly recommend Powell Funeral Directors in Ware. Simon Drane assisted us last year on the
death of my father, and i didn't hesitate in requesting his services when my mother sadly passed last month.
The service he provides is fantastic. He is friendly, easy to speak to and highly professional. Nothing is too much trouble for him.
His support and understanding is wonderful, and it takes some of the pressure out of what is a very difficult time.

From the initial call at 2.00 am all the staff were very understanding & patient. This was my first time making arrangements and mum had a very plan & simple service but still nothing was too much trouble. Both mine & mums wishes were just as important as maybe a much more lavish service/plan, but there were no sales pitches to change what we wanted and through a very difficult time everyone helped guide me through it. If ever I’m asked I will definitely recommend. Thank you.

I found the process of organising the funeral was made so much easier by the kindness and professionalism of the staff at Powell's. Mark and his team were so understanding and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day. I have nothing but praise for the service they provided for us. It turned out to be a fitting tribute and celebration of our Mum.

Having used Powells previously, we didn't hesitate to use their services again. I cannot speak highly enough of Mark (our appointed Funeral Director) who at every step showed empathy and care towards my whole family. He told me on a number of occasions that I did not need to worry about anything on the day of the funeral as he would take care of everything and that was exactly what he did.
