Excellent service.
Response from John Kemp Funeral Directors
Thank you for your 5* review and lovely comments.
Rating 5.0
I can’t praise the staff I dealt with enough. In a difficult time they were friendly, welcoming, sensitive and very reassuring. They allowed us to have the personal funeral we wanted whilst at the same time guiding us through the whole procedure easily & professionally. We had a bespoke funeral that was a very personal experience for my family. Thank you so much.
Response from John Kemp 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. Your family continues to be in our thoughts and we are honoured to have been able to give you the service you needed.

John Kemp provided the best possible service to my family at the most difficult time. From start to finish the staff were outstanding - highly professional, thoughtful, flexible and with full attention to every detail. Not surprisingly the cremation and celebration of my father’s life was perfectly memorable.
