We were very happy with the service provided by Leverton funeral directors.
We were helped my Megan and she took her time and explained everything to us. It was very helpful that everything we needed to do was available through them including flowers, order of service, donations,and the vicar, which made things so easy and worry free.
The day before the funeral Richard rang me and explained exactly what would happen on the day of the funeral. On the day everything went very smoothly and exactly as planned. All the staff on the day were very kind and courteous. I would thoroughly recommend Levertons.

My brother and I used Leverton for our sister’s funeral this month. We were both very grateful for their professionalism whenever we saw them or spoke to them. All the staff we engaged with were wonderful - Meghan, Richard and Debbie. The celebrant Nadine led a very fitting service for our sister and everyone we spoke to afterwards said what a lovely tribute she conducted.

I would highly recommend Leverton to anyone who needs help, advice and guidance when saying goodby to a loved one. Thank you to everyone at Leverton.

I recently used Leverton Funeral Directors in Dartford to arrange me Mum's funeral and found them to be extremely caring and professional. Debbie was very helpful, she made everything really easy and nothing was too much trouble. She kept me informed every step of the way, she took a lot of stress away from me and I really can't thank her enough.

Richard initially took the call I when I phoned up to plan the funeral. It is a phone call nobody ever wants to make but he was compassionate and understanding. Richard also took the time to make some recommendations on the order of service once we have received the draft copy. Which he didn't need to do but I think it shows how Leverton's do care about making sure every detail perfect.

From the time i met Debbie at Levertons nothing was to much trouble. Making decisions at that terrible time was not easy but she made the awful process of booking a funeral much easier. The funeral on the day went without any problems and was on time. I would have no hesitation of recommending them to others.

Levertons funeral home in Dartford have arranged both my mum and dad's funerals. Dad's was 7 years ago in April 2015 and mums on the 29th March 2022. The staff were polite, sympathetic, kind, and very approachable. They were also respectful to mum, dad and to our family. They catered for all our needs, answered all our questions and nothing was too much trouble. Debbie and Richard were excellent and a credit to the company. Thankyou so much.

Debbie and her colleagues at Leverton’s in Dartford were excellent throughout. My Mum’s funeral was sensitively handled with great dignity and all the arrangements went smoothly. There was a good choice of options available and I thought the overall price was good as well. Many thanks to everyone involved.

I can't express enough how pleased my family were with the service Leverton Funeral Directors provided, when they arranged my father's funeral just recently. They were caring and very respectful of our wishes, efficient and so helpful. Special thanks go to Debbie, who ensured the process was as smooth as possible. As a a result we got the funeral service we hoped for, and the aftercare we received was considerate and thoughtful. I have no hesitation in recommending Leverton Funeral Directors.

Levertons Funeral directors in Dartford were recommended by my family and after the loss of my cousin it was great to discuss things with Debbie who treated me with great empathy. Everything was discussed and left in their capable hands, my brother and I had a fair bit of input but we’re glad we found a company we could feel relaxed with,and trust to carry out our wishes. The service went smoothly and we were grateful of the help and support we had received along the way, especially through these trying times of COVID-19. We would happily recommend Levertons who are part of the dignity group to anybody.

Arranging my fathers funeral was made so much easier by Debbie and her team. From start to finish Debbie kept me updated. Now we are waiting for my fathers ashes to be scattered, Levertons are looking after dad until the date arranged. Allan conducted the service with ease and all the family said the funeral was a lovely send off for dad. Levertons has been our family funeral directors for many many years, that’s why we go back as we know we get a good service with familiar faces. They are always friendly and helpful.
Response from Leverton Funeral Directors
We always appreciate receiving comments, it enables us to provide the right care for each family. I am glad that the final wishes for your Father were carried out to the highest standard. Thank you.
