Have used for both my Mum and Dad sadly. Wonderfully attentive service where nothing is too much trouble. Hopefully won’t need to use an undertaker in the future but if I do, it would always be A H Apps.

From the moment we made the appointment Sharon at your Chatham branch was exceptionally attentive and made the whole process seamless. We knew exactly what was going to happen at every stage which made it a lot easier for us all. On the day Graham called me to explain the timings and route we would be taking, and how the service would go and where we needed to sit and how to leave the chapel. Although any funeral is sad we did laugh and cry in equal amounts, and knowing we were being well looked after by Apps staff made it a lot easier. Kind regards Paul Essenhigh and family

I was recommended A H Apps by a family friend who had previously used this company.

Regarding arrangements I dealt with the Chatham branch and the member of staff guided myself through what the procedure would be and discussed my options.

She knew all about Sikh traditions and the service itself which I was very impressed with and was a relief as then I did not have to explain everything.

She made me feel at ease and helped with every step and process so I did not feel any pressure or stress at this difficult time.

My father did not leave me with any instructions of how he would of liked things but he looked very smart and respectful.

We were looked after by your team on the day of the funeral (1st May) and they were very supportive and highly professional.

Thank you for everything and your support

The staff were very understanding at a difficult time. Every aspect of the funeral arrangements were fully discussed and the family wishes were accommodated when the final arrangements were made. At no time did we feel rushed and the funeral itself ran very smoothly. Great respect was displayed by all the staff throughout the proceedings.
A little while after the funeral had taken place, we were contacted by the funeral directors just to check that all had gone to plan.
