Very impressed by the service provided by Hambrook and Johns. Nikki was my first point of contact and went through all the details carefully and sympathetically. Both she and Lise made several phone calls to me to check that I was happy with the arrangements, including the virtual streaming. The liaison between funeral parlour, Celebrant, crematorium and streaming company was excellent and everything ran smoothly on the day. I am deeply grateful to Hambrook and Johns for facilitating a dignified funeral for my father.

I cannot thank them enough for their kindness and support throughout this very sad experience. Nothing has been too much trouble and my mum purchasing a dignity plan has taken so much of the heartache of what my mum might have wanted out of my hands leaving me with far less concern. A big Thankyou from our family.
Response from Hambrook & Johns Funeral Directors
These kind words mean a great deal to the whole team. I am glad that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service for your Mother and that we managed to make the day run as smoothly as possible for you.

I was extremely pleased with the high standard of service provided by Hambrook and Johns in arranging the funeral of my mother. Nikki was very friendly, compassionate, understanding, professional, informative, and efficient. She explained everything to me clearly, answered all my questions, and responded to my emails promptly. On the day of the funeral everything ran smoothly and was exactly as I had wanted, and those attending appeared to be very impressed as well. Therefore I can thoroughly recommend Hambrook and Johns.
