My initial phone call to Francis Chappell & Sons was an extremely difficult one and one I hadn’t envisaged making. Sandra handle the call with such empathy, taking enough information while keeping the call as short as possible.

From the initial phone call to the actual day of mum’s funeral, Francis Chappell & Sons were amazing.

Jenny and Alan were fantastic at organising everything, keeping us informed every step of the way, checking everything was okay on a regular basis.

Mum had a beautiful send off and one that she deserved ❤️

Couldn’t recommend Francis Chappell & Sons enough, thank you!
Response from Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors
It is comforting to know that Sandra, Alan, Jenny and the rest of the team were there to support you through this time and relieve some of the pressure through guidance and support. It has been a privilege to look after your Mother.

From start to finish excellent service from the Locksbottom Kent branch. Professional, organised and kept me fully informed of all aspects of my Dads funeral. Answered my questions fully, carried out our requests and definitely felt there was no hard sell, left it to me to make decisions all along with no pressure. Huge thanks to all involved in the arrangements, especially Jenny and Alan. x

From my very first contact with Francis Chappell in Farnborough Orpington I found all the staff to be always courteous and understanding of my needs. I felt under no pressure to choose any particular option for my wife's funeral. On my initial visit to their office I felt unable to confirm every aspect of the arrangements but Nicki put me at ease and explained that I could think things over and let her know what I wanted.

On the day of the funeral all the arrangements went without a hitch and our family and friends were all treated with dignity and respect.
