Rating 5.0
With no experience of having to arrange a funeral the task was quite daunting. l am pleased to say that l still have relatively little experience as Sears organised everything. From the first phone call they were courteous, considerate and organised. Communication, advice and arrangements were all first class. Costs were covered by an insurance policy so can not comment on value for money. However the funeral went without hitch and was carried out with professionalism throughout. Would thoroughly recommend.

The service we were provided with was second to none. We were treated with compassion and kindness throughout. They answered any questions or problems we had and helped whenever we were unsure of any next move. Sally and Stuart were brilliant checking on us from time to time and helped us through the funeral day without being obtrusive.

Sally whom welcomed us on arrival was very warm welcoming and supportive with our bereavement. She guided us right through until the end and was always there at the end of the phone when needed. The service went perfectly and couldn’t thank Stuart enough for his support and care he showed us. What a person centred funeral parlour, would highly recommend.

I have always used Sears Barming & always would in the future.
The service they provide is excellent & I can’t thank them enough.
Sally is amazing and always goes the extra mile. She ensures that you are kept informed every step of the way. Rather than email, she will always take the time to call you to make sure that you are ok and to offer support and explain each step of the process - a very personal services which means so much at such a difficult time.
The whole team are great and take care of all the arrangements - they absolutely make a very difficult time that much easier.

Right from the start with our first meeting with Sally, we were confident that Sears would be able to meet with all our needs. Everything we asked was answered confidently and sympathetically, and everything we asked for, was done to the family's complete satisfaction. On the day of my fathers funeral, all went smoothly and without any drama, thanks to Stuart and his team, from perfect timing to training the grandsons to act as pall bearers. Cannot recommend Sears enough! Thank-you to all!
