Our whole family were very pleased with the care and support we were given when arranging my mother's funeral.
The help was very professional but personally appropriate for which we would like to thank Stuart and his whole team.

The service provided by the staff at Michael A Lawrence when handling our mother’s funeral was so professional and caring. They provided help and support at a difficult time. Their staff were friendly and respectful at all times and the funeral itself went so smoothly thanks to the care taken by the pall bearers and drivers.

I have used Michael A Lawrence Funeral Services twice in the last 6 months and could not have wished for a better service. They go above and beyond and nothing is too much trouble. Particularly Chloe in the office, who has been amazing and Mike who looked after both the funerals was a great comfort. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company. They are the best in my opinion!

From my first phone call through to the actual day of Dads cremation, Chloe was so helpful and understanding and patient with me, the service she provided was excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Michael Lawrence in Maidstone.

I was very impressed with the excellent service I received from everyone at Michael Lawrence. They were very kind and considerate and dealt with everything perfectly. Chloe in the office was extremely helpful and the team of gentlemen on the day of the funeral headed by Stuart were perfect in every way. Thank you so much.
Response from Michael A Lawrence Funeral Directors

Rating 5.0
At a very emotional and stressful time, Chloe worked hard to make everything happen with the minimum of input from myself. Issues I was concerned about disappeared as Chloe made all the necessary arrangements, only calling on me to confirm it was what the family wanted. Thanks to Rachel who picked up the baton and saved the day when I needed some help. Also to Stuart who was great, again making a very emotional day bearable with his professional management of the funeral service. I would highly recommended Chloe and the team.

Their service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. The funeral parlour and chapel of rest was all very welcoming and homely. Everything went to plan and they made it our day to say our goodbyes. Also the collection of the ashes was made as painless as possible and they are there if we need a chat in the future. Thank you all very much. Jan neale
