I am very pleased that Hambrook & Johns were the funeral directors taking care of my mum - and me. I'm not to name staff but you know who you are and you cared for me very well. It wasn't just your efficiency that helped it was the time taken to build a relationship between us that meant I could trust you and therefore Hambrook & Johns. Knowing that I could ask any question helped me to get through the practicalities and be able to do the very last thing I could for my mum. A huge thank you for making a difficult time better than it might have been. You really helped.
On the day of the funeral everything went just as agreed and the care for me and and all mum's family continued throughout. Thank you - again you know who you are - for making it possible for the wonderful staff at mum's care home to say their final goodbyes to her. My sister said that mark of respect was beautiful and moving. Thank you.

I have dealt with Beth from Hambrook and Johns - Dover on two occasions having lost both parents. Being the first point of contact Beth was professional and empathetic to our needs. The support and professionalism from all of the staff throughout the whole process exceeded our expectations. Nothing was too much trouble and the aftercare support is also a nice touch. I was fortunate that both my parents had Dignity funeral prepaid plans which made the process so much easier. I have now also put plans in place for both my wife and I giving me peace of mind for my family. Paul Reed

I was treated with respect understanding and felt that I had left my mother and her care in the hands of friends rather than someone who is being paid to do a job. Beth, Lis and Kevin the celebrant were all anyone could wish for at a very difficult time in my life. I could not have wished for better for my mother's funeral. I would reccomend Hambrook and John's to anyone who has recently lost a loved one.
Response from Hambrook & Johns Funeral Directors
