Our family was very satisfied with the care given by T S Horlock and Son, Northfleet at a difficult time after the loss of our mother. All members of staff that we met or spoke to have been caring and efficient but we would particularly like to mention Anoushka and Stephen for their kind, yet old-fashioned levels of service. The needs of bereaved families have been complex during the pandemic but this firm adapted to our requirements and made it clear that this was no problem for them. We feel certain that we made an excellent choice.
Response from T S Horlock & Son Funeral Directors
Thank you so much for this lovely review which means all the more at this very challenging time.

Everyone was so kind and sincere. Staff went the extra mile and sourced pins that had already been chosen by my sister before she died. My sister didn’t want anyone wearing black at her funeral and they really added to the personal touch by all wearing orange ties. Couldn’t have asked for a more professional kind and compassionate company who genuinely care.

I cannot praise highly enough the service received following the loss of my Mother. The staff at T S Horlock & Son were professional, courteous and went out of their way to support me to deal with obstacles I faced which were not of their making. Their advice was invaluable and the whole process was seamless from beginning to end and I cannot thank them enough.

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. Thank you for these lovely words.

Everybody at T S Horlock were so supportive and professional, nothing was too much trouble and they made sure we knew we could ask anything, at any time, and as many times as we needed to so that we could have the service we needed for our loved one. The time spent with the team before the funeral was relaxed and unhurried and at every stage after we knew our loved one was treated with compassion and dignity which extended to everybody on the day and continued until his ashes were collected. We cannot thank T S Horlock enough for looking after us so well.
Response from T S Horlock & Son Funeral Directors

All of the staff conducted themselves very professionally. Nothing was too much trouble.
We were so pleased with the funeral of our mother. It was as perfect as can be from beginning to end.
After the funeral we were told that we could ring for anything we were unsure of any advice we needed they would provide or direct us to the person we needed to speak to. Cannot thank them enough. Our mother would have loved the day we could not have asked for anything more. Thank you all.
