Ann & Lisa are warm & genuinely caring people who did an amazing job of supporting us through the process of laying our much loved Father to rest. The team had previously cared for our Mother and we were confident that Dad was in safe hands.
We had excellent communication throughout and were guided through the whole process. Lisa does a brilliant job of leading proceedings with great dignity & gravitas and we will always be grateful to her for her support on the day. Ann is a great organiser, from flowers to printing, she lends a personal touch with great attention to detail. Many thanks to the whole team, you really are special people.

The sensitive and professional support we received as a family from the team at Hambrook and Johns was exceptional. Ann Smith who is the main contact at the office is extremely helpful and sympathetic and was able to ensure that everything went according to plan . There is so much to be done including setting a date and times for the funeral, the order of service , notices in the local newspapers and keeping up to date with the restrictions caused by Covid 19 which complicated everything .
Our family cannot thank all the staff at Hambrook and Johns enough for helping us get through a very sad time just before Christmas . Thank You !
