We were all really pleased with our service from FC Woods, from the moment we first went to see Kim until after the funeral itself.
My Nan had pre-paid for a funeral plan which was her way of making sure the family didn’t have to worry financially but it was also nice for us to know that all the choices made in the plan were what nan would have wanted so that the service would have been to her liking. Kim was excellent at telling us exactly what was included in the plan and showed us all the choices nan had made.
The staff at FC Woods kept in touch with any updates and always answered any questions really quickly.
Each and every member of staff from Kim and Frances in FC Woods to Carol the funeral director to Linda the celebrant- all were amazing, kind and considerate and helped what is a very sad time run as trouble free as possible to give my Nan the send off we all wanted and that she deserved.
We couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Thank you x
