We dealt mostly with Margaret, we felt at ease and very comfortable when making the arrangements, she was always available to contact if we needed a question answered. On day of funeral the director, I think his name was Scott?, was very professional, everything went perfectly. I would also like to praise the celebrant Robin Desmond, he also made a difficult day much easier. All in all an excellent professional service from all involved, David Kenward

It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. I am glad that the team were there to guide you through this difficult time.

Margaret was so sensitive and understanding to all of our family's needs during such a difficult time, she guided us through what can sometimes be a confusing process with ease and grace. Christine's service was absolutely beautiful, we were so proud of how Francis Chappell had facilitated our wishes so that her day could be a celebration. All of the drivers, and particularly the director who walked in front of the procession were so incredibly respectful and proud of their work - they held our family and friends in such a way that we felt supported and comfortable. Every step of our dear Christine's service was beautiful thanks to Francis Chappell & Sons.

Hello Margaret,

On behave of our family; I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for your kindness in helping with the funeral arrangements of my late sister (Linda Roden). Your caring and understanding was much appreciated at such a difficult time, not forgetting the prompt exchange of emails.

The day of the funeral felt more of a celebration of Linda, with the attention to every detail that was spoken about when your director (Lee) stopped all the traffic outside the shop where my sister used, to say her final farewell.
We couldn’t have asked for any more, it’s always a difficult time but the caring and professionalism of the whole team is a credit to you all.

I can only give Francis Chappell Bexleyheath 5 stars, I would give them ten! I have used this branch two times over the past four years and the service they provide is amazing. Margaret is such a wonderful, caring person. Nothing is to much trouble, she helps you on every step of the funeral. On the day the gentlemen with the cars are unbelievable, again they help you through every stage of the day. I cannot fault the staff of Francis Chappell Bexleyheath. Thank you all

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences we have to face in our lifetime so when my dad died it was important to me to go to the funeral directors who had been there for dad and I when my mum died nearly 15 years ago. I recognised Maggie straight away and felt instantly reassured and comforted that she would be there for us again. Maggie is warm, intuitive and professional - nothing is too much. The door was always open if I needed to discuss arrangements or talk about dad. I really appreciated this and felt welcome. On the day of the funeral the chief undertaker treated us all with kindness and empathy - checking in with us all that everything was as we wanted. My father was treated with respect and dignity. Thank you very much for the personal, sensitive service you gave us.

Francis Chappell have been quietly caring and efficient with the arrangements for my mothers funeral. Everything was taken care of professionally and with dignity regarding the care of my mother from the home where she died,arranging for my sister (who lives in Suffolk) to see her in the chapel of rest and making and adapting the arrangements at the crematorium. Nothing was too much trouble and their help was invaluable during an extremely emotional time.
