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.

I have to say from start to finish, I cannot fault the service that we received from Horlocks, they were so kind, helpful and understanding with the funeral for my Father. My Family for many many years has always used Horlocks for family and relatives funerals.
The Lady in the shop helped us so much and put us at ease with our sad lose and arranged everything for us, when the Funeral day arrived the Funeral Director helped our Mother so much, getting her in and out of the car and into the Chapel as she has bad mobility.
Also the Celebrant who conducted the service was brilliant, everyone who attended the funeral, told us how wonderful it all was and how everything was arranged so well, which was very nice to hear.
At the end of the funeral we received a lovely framed picture of our father and a lovely book with all of the cards which was on the flowers, for us to keep, my mother and I received a red rose each which was such a lovely thought.
We cannot thank everyone enough for all of their help at our very sad time. Thank you.
