From contacting you to the funeral and after I can say that all your team provided an excellent understanding respectful and compassionate service, My Uncle had a great fitting tribute and celebration of his life and everything was taken good care of relieving the family of the worry of organising the funeral and everything else for the day, you should all be proud of yourselves for what you have done, our family are truly grateful.
Response from Hambrook & Johns Funeral Directors
Your kind words mean a great deal to the team who always work very hard to deliver great care. We know how special each person is and aim to convey this in all aspects of our work from the arrangements to the day of the service. Thank you for these lovely words, it means so much to the whole team.

Right from the first contact with Paula and Lynsey we received a first class service. Everything was explained to us in full and any questions answered immediately, by phone , text and email. The recommended “celebrant” Eric was excellent helping with the order of service and giving us a wonderful celebration of life. Carol “walked” us through what to expect on the day of the funeral and ensured everything went without a hitch.
All through we were given the company’s full attention as was dad and he looked marvellous when we were able to view him.
Thank you to everyone concerned you helped us through a very difficult time.

I found everyone that I had dealings with and in particular Funeral arranger Lynsey and Service Celebrant Linda helpful, compassionate and patient at a very emotional time for both me and my family.
Nothing was too much trouble and the funeral was conducted professionally and with dignity whilst still complying with all the restrictions imposed due to Covid-19 making for a difficult situation.
All in all a first class service and thank you one and all.

Both Lynsey and Paula were extremeley helpful, efficient and caring before, when pre booking the funeral, during and after the death, and post funeral too. Alyssa was so smartly dressed and efficient and caring and sensitive on the day itself.All staff are well trained and very friendly and worked instantly with queries we had and solved and dealt with questions for us.
Our experience could not have been better. The carrier bag and contents were amazingly presented. So impressed.
We would certainly recommend Dignity now to anyone.
Thank you to all concerned.

The service we received was of the highest standard, from start to finish. We were kept up to date with the arrangements, and secondary checks where made to ensure the funeral plan, was in place to the letter, and all times we were treated with respect and sympathy, but all members involved from Hambrook & Johns. The service went well. I would highly recommend Hambrook & Johns when times of loss take place, its never a good time, but when you have people who know what there doing, its takes a lot of stress away, leaving you time to say farewell to your loved ones. Both my parents had funeral plans, which I’m so glad they had the foresight to do, that alone took away the financial worry, but they were always good at controlling their finances.

From our very first visit we were guided and helped with each aspect of my Sisters funeral arrangements in a kindly professionally manner. Prior to the funeral day itself I was contact by the funeral director who would be with us on the day to run through what would happen and if I had any special requests. This I found so useful as on the day of the funeral itself, it would have been difficult to take any of this information in, but I knew what would be happening at each stage. All staff showed the greatest respect and kindness, I couldn’t have expected any more.

Everyone was so kind. Even when I just popped round with something extra to put into Dad's coffin I was invited in and given time to talk and offered a drink. All the staff were amazing, from the gentlemen who came to collect my father when he died to the women who gave me support through the whole process.
Thank you all!
