I cannot fault Horlocks. Karen and Steve were superb at making us feel at ease and steered us through unknown territory with consideration and extreme efficiency. When we first met Karen she immediately put us at our ease, she is extremely easy to talk to and explains everything thoroughly, nothing was too much trouble.

Unfortunately, Karen was struck down with Covid the week before the funeral but Steve took over manfully. Tying up all last minute loose ends and keeping contact all the time.

The Order order of Service was extremely professionally presented as was the entire package.

I would certainly recommend Horlocks and, indeed, already have.

The staff were always available to answer questions and to guide us through the process of arranging the funeral. Everything was organised and carried out in a friendly manner. We were impressed with the dignity and formality of bearing the coffin into the service and particularly delighted to be given a keepsake album to hold the cards from the flowers and cards of condolence together with a framed photograph. Thank you.

Throughout the sad passing of Mum, Karen at Horlocks in Longfield was an absolute star, very professional,compassionate and the whole process from collecting Mum from Hospital to the crematorium showed great dignity as did Graham the funeral director on the day.

Mum had a funeral plan, glad she decided to use Horlocks.

Certainly made our family in getting Mum laid to rest so much easier.

Thank you

I would like to take the time to thank the Longfield team for the great all round service provided throughout what is a tough time for all, both helping to organise my mother’s funeral and on the actual day. Always available for advice, both emails and phone calls were responded to promptly and we never felt pressurised to make decisions despite there clearly being some timelines their end. Everything went to plan on the day, the car looked great with flowers and cards fully on view and the funeral director was polite and very sensitive to the situation but always there if needed. Post ceremony the high level of service continued with any loose ends tied up, I can really say their focus was on us and not the financials, very refreshing and appropriate. A big thank you from the whole family, highly recommended.
