I do not normally leave reviews but have felt compelled to write this due to the outstanding professionalism from all the staff at A H Apps.
From the moment of notifying them of my father's passing through to the arrangements and the funeral itself, it was dealt with so carefully and with sensitivity and kindness.Apps suggested things for the service that we had not thought of. They were at the end of the phone throughout the process and the actual day of the funeral was the best it could be and was managed by Apps with such respect.
It was a lovely touch after the funeral when we were driven back to the house to present my Mum with a beautiful keepsake box with the order of service and space to store cards of condolence. I would not hesitate in recommending A H Apps, a family business that really do care.

A H Apps provides an excellent service during a time of heartache over the loss of a family member. All staff that you come into contact with show empathy and understanding and go out of their way to ensure everything runs smoothly and adjust the arrangements to whatever you require. As they are so professional they know how to make a stressful time much more easier to manage and give you the guidance to that you need. Myself and all the family and friends that attended were highly impressed with ceremony in every way. Thank you.
Response from A H Apps Funeral Directors
We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after. It is comforting to know that the team were there to support you through this time and relieve some of the pressure through guidance and support.

My stepmother had a funeral plan with Apps, which made the whole process of arranging her funeral so much more straightforward as we were aware of her wishes from the outset ~ there was no requirement to check with all family members before committing to things like the type of service or coffin as this had already been decided, which gave us peace of mind. The staff were so helpful and always at the end of the phone. They kept in contact and provided advice and counselling, and continued to support us even after the funeral. Very happy with the service provided. Thank you.

I found the staff were very kind and kept me very well informed, considering everything had to be done over the phone because of the covid 19 restrictions. The service went very well and never felt rushed, they were happy to wait while we took the flowers to my brothers grave as we didn't want to leave them there to be thrown away. All in all very good service from Apps funeral service and i personally would recommend them
Response from A H Apps Funeral Directors

We chose to use Apps for our Mum's funeral arrangements as they had provided such a good service 11 years ago after the death of our Dad. We are so glad that we did - from our initial tear-filled contact with KF, nothing was too much trouble. She was sympathetic without being sentimental, and we really felt that she understood both what Mum was like, and what we wanted for her. She was frank and honest when we asked difficult questions, and treated us with such care and respect that it really did make a difference to our whole experience which, given the current restrictions, had been difficult to say the least over the weeks prior to Mum's death. On the day, the arrangements were perfect, having spoken previously several times to G who was to accompany us on the day. He was friendly but professional, and the celebrant recommended by KF had come up with a personal service which fitted Mum perfectly.
We are so grateful to everybody at Apps for helping us to deal with our loss and making the whole experience more bearable.
Many thanks to all involved, The Coote family

The loss of our mum was huge to us but she had already made sure she had a funeral plan in place and fully paid for, this helped immensely and I am certainly going to make sure myself and my partner do this so that our children do not have any worry.
From the moment we made contact with A H Apps Funeral Directors regarding our Mum's funeral plan it was all made so much easier. Our first contact was Keren who was fantastic and thoroughly explained each step to us. Keren helped with everything from contacting the priest to ordering the music we had chosen for the crematorium and everything in between. E-mails were going backwards and forwards between us making sure the order of service was perfect.
On the day of the funeral everything went like clockwork, the car drivers turned up on time and were very patient and dignified. The service went perfectly, our mum got the send off she deserved. Everybody commented on the day as to how lovely and how well the service went.
I would 100% recommend that anybody with any doubts about Funeral Plans or using A H Apps, you will be completely looked after at a time when care, comfort and patience are needed.

I used AH Apps and Dignity funeral services for my father. I found them very considerate, polite, understanding, warm and helpful. I would highly recommend their services for anyone grieving and making arrangements for their loved one that has passed. The funeral day went really well and they have been with me before, during and after the ceremony. There is a lot to sort out when someone dies and they helped every step of the way.

At such a difficult time and doing the preparation on my own I found the whole experience of using Apps very heartwarming, and encouraging which helped put my mind at ease with the process involved. And on the day of the funeral too.( I loved the Lillie's in the office it was so welcoming along with my coffee )
