Tina and the team was so helpful from start to finish with what otherwise was a very difficult time. Nothing was too much trouble, and she was very patient going over everything with us. Making sure we covered everything from collecting my dad to the actual day of the cremation. We felt thoroughly looked after as a family, it was just like having a family member take care of us. I cannot recommend them enough

I felt supported and was gently guided through the whole process, nothing was too much trouble from the efficient team in Garston, Watford, Herts.
Everything was explained to me and I was given time to make decisions.
This resulted in a farewell just as we wanted it to be.... a sad day but a memorable day.

Thank you for the service we received from Macleans, in particular Tina who handled the arrangements with much sensitivity and professionalism. The live Web Cast was very effective and meant family and friends were able to join us from far and wide as they would have done in non Covid. Also our undertaker Craig put us all at ease on what was a very difficult day.

Thanks again .

Losing a loved one is never easy.
Losing a loved one in the middle of a global pandemic creates its own challenges that cannot be anticipated. Maclean’s were incredibly supportive from the first phone call we made to them. They provided a professional yet sympathetic service whilst in keeping with the safety measures for Covid. We cannot thank them enough for their guidance, professionalism and kindness.

Donna was very helpful and helped me sort things out. I was travelling back and forward from Eastbourne to Watford so she always accommodated me to fit in with that.

From the time I stepped into Macleans the excellent customer service started from there. Donna had empathy, kindness and the human touch money cannot buy. At a terrible time I was guided through all the options at my own pace. The arrangements for the funeral and the funeral itself was first class and I highly recommend these funeral directors if you are unfortunate to lose a loved one.
