Thank you for leaving a review online for Bournes of Dartford Funeral Directors. I am pleased we were able to help make things easier for you at such a difficult time.

I recently contacted Bournes to help me organise the funeral for my late father. I had not organised a funeral before and so went into it with no experience and a great deal of anxiety. However, the staff at Bournes were really wonderful with the arrangements and so caring and professional during the funeral itself. I genuinely cannot think of anything they could have done better for our family. Thank you so much Bournes.
Response from Bournes of Dartford Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself.

Overall everything was perfect, we couldn’t thank you all enough for making this time as smooth as possible.

In particular Chelsea was fabulous and nothing was ever to much. Through numerous calls of calling about the same things she reassured us. She was such a life line and we cannot thank her enough she was so professional, reliable, relatable and overall brilliant.

The funeral itself was done to a top standard and Richard was so welcoming, kind and professional. He was the prefect man for the job and we could not fault him, he was brilliant.

Sacha was holding the service and was appointed by your team. She was the most perfect fit and provided a beautiful service. She was easy to talk to, worked around us and yet again nothing was to much. We were so pleased with her service.

Overall we wish we could call out everyone’s names if we knew them. But just a massive thank you to our driver who was respectful throughout the entire journey, the men who gracefully handled the coffin and done it with such respect and overall just everyone who made the day what it was.

We could not recommend the Dartford Branch more. Thank you all so much!

We decided to arrange my mums funeral at Bournes as they provided us with a very good service for my sisters funeral too some years ago. Although circumstances were difficult because of Covid Bournes were very helpful with everything from the day we first went in to see them, during the day of the funeral and even after the funeral by ringing and asking how I was. Chelsea was very polite and helpful and arranged everything for us talking through everything in great detail. The funeral service was very sad but went extremely well and I would just like to say a big Thankyou to everyone at Bournes that took care of my mum. Excellent service throughout.

The service given by Bournes was first class both during the planning and the day itself. Most of the arrangements were done over the phone or online due to COVID restrictions. Nothing was to difficult and there was always good contact with the staff at Bournes of Dartford. Thank you.
