Everything from start to finish was really sincere. Ross was amazing, he made me feel at ease and really looked after me and nothing was too much trouble. In my opinion he went above and beyond to help me. Everything was so beautiful for my Mum. Robin the minister he was also so good and the service was beautiful and calm too. On the day Steve was also great and took care of me and was so organised and again nothing was too much for him. We as a family have always used Horlocks and will continue to do so. I cannot say enough of a thank you to you all for all your help, support and guidance. It is very much appreciated. Thank you

From the moment we walk through the door we were taken care of. Ross was very helpful , kind and patient even after we changed our minds a couple of days later to which funeral we wanted it was not a problem and we were able to make the changes without any fuss.
We were kept well informed with what was happening leading up to the day of the funeral.
On the day of the funeral from the moment the cars arrived to the moment we got back home everything was taken care of. We would like to thank Steve and all the staff for their wonderful service and making everything run smoothly.
As sad as this day was for us we had no stress and everything ran like clockwork.
Would definitely recommend.

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.

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.
