As my father had already got a funeral plan for my mum and himself at the Orpington branch and I’d dealt with them with mum 10 years ago I was pleased with them. I found Beckenham branch (as Orpington was too far) and met Kelly who was like meeting a friend, her professional attitude and friendliness was very calming and she was always their to answer any questions - also covered every part with helpful suggestions and advice. Kelly’s suggestion of Debbie Devito to do the service was amazing. When I’m back on my feet, I’d like to arrange a funeral plan myself with you.

The lady in the Beckenham office is very kind, but also efficient. She remembered me from my mother's funeral five years ago and had all the paperwork ready when I went to see her. The funeral director on the day was also very kind and warm and everything went very well. I would not hesitate to recommend Francis Chappell.
