I found staff from start to finish extremely helpful, Sean collected my mum in the private Ambulance he was lovely, so kind and professional, handled mum with the upmost respect. Lovely man who probably doesnt get the recognition he deserves. Kerry and Barbara in the branch for helping me and supporting me with seeing mum in chapel of rest and making sure her send off was one she deserved and would of been proud of. The day of the funeral I found Chris who drove us was very patient, understanding and caring, another member of staff who should have the recognition he deserves. The memory box I was handed by Chris after he brought us back to the wake was a lovely touch and such a lovely thing to do for people like me who lost a parent. All in all the service I received from start to finish was 10/10. Highly recommended. Thank you all for everything you have done for me.
