When our Daughter passed away, grief was on a whole new level.. I wanted Her funeral to be amazing., perfect. All the staff guided me, helped me complete all my wishes for Her, and most of all, were extremely patient and respectful, as I constantly changed my mind, adding things, changing words etc.. They became my very Best Friends throughout the whole process as I spoke to them almost daily, mainly Sharon.. They really are Earth Angels., who helped me lay my adorable child to rest with the Angels above.. Everything went to plan. Everyone said what an uplifting, beautiful funeral service it was... A massive Thank You from the very bottom of my Heart. Mercer Family x

We met Sharon on our first visit to Apps and she handled the whole process from beginning to end.
We found her to be compassionate and understanding. Her communication with me was excellent…kept me updated every step of the way.
Although this was a very sad and traumatic time for me and our family Sharon made us feel calm and did not rush us on any decision making throughout the whole process.
Would definitely recommend her to family and friends.

I thought the funeral service was very good and very polite and very helpful through out all through the the ordeal and the funeral director at the cremoriam was indeed very helpful to my nephew's wife as she had a coughing fit and had to go out of the service and he gave her a glass of water and was highly pleased with that.
So in summary I would recommend them to anybody who needs them.

Organising my Mothers funeral filled me with dread, but with Sharon's constant care and professionalism, she supported me through every step, which I will always be forever grateful. As a family, we have always called upon the services of Apps for other family members, so it was only natural that Mum had selected Apps, which gave me a lot of reassurance. Graham was on hand to guide me through the day and he ensured that everything went as clockwork. The whole team took so much pressure of myself and my family, thank you - you're all truly amazing.

A.h.apps funeral directors chatham was beyond amazing. We were given so much support and everyone was so professional. Nothing was too much trouble.
The service went without a hitch and it was exactly what our mum/nan would have liked for herself.
From the moment we phoned to speak about the funeral we were put at ease and we were completely reassured our mum/nan was in the best hands.

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
