Reviews of our Funeral Directors in Beckenham
They couldn’t have done more to make the whole process as easy as possible.
From liaising with the church to the crematorium and organising the return of ashes to be sent to their final resting place.
I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
We were relieved to know that there was a funeral plan in place.
