Reviews of our services
Marilyn, Pat & Grace
Their consideration both before and on the day of the funeral service was impeccable and we have nothing but praise for all involved both in the office and at the service.
Five star service.
On the day of the joint funerals Lee and the team of undertakers were absolutely superb. It was all conducted with total dignity and respect and they took such good care and attention to ensure that all went smoothly on the day. Lee explained everything very carefully and with great kindness.
A truly exceptional service which helped enormously on such a sad day. I am really so very grateful for everything
funeral arrangements was very helpful and provided the right level of support to my family.
I would recommend your services to others and use you in the future should I need to.
My thanks comes from the heart.
We couldn’t have the send off that mum wanted,
Which left us feeling a bit daunted.
But Francis Chappell took us under their wing,
And arranged everything.
Nothing was too much trouble,
For our little bubble,
So that we could say,
Goodbye to Mum in the best way.
They were professional and smart,
Purchasing red ties to look the part.
They were fabulous from beginning to the end,
And they are a company we would certainly recommend.
Mrs L Fifield & family
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.
