Your service was exemplary - thank you so much for looking after my mum as well as my family and I whilst we visited the chapel most days. We really appreciated the teams kind and professional service when visiting the chapel, as well as all the preparation and advice your team gave throughout. The funeral day went exactly to plan. Thank you

Both my parents brought a pre paid funeral plan - best decision they made in this sad time, mainly it was their choice as they didn't want me, their only child to make these decisions in upsetting circumstances.

I found that on telephoning Francis Chappell & Sons, I had the utmost sympathy, understanding, caring and professionalism going. Everything from the first call to after the funeral was perfectly organised to the T. The crematorium Kemnal Park was also helpful in everything, I felt that Francis Chappell & Sons and Kemnal Park helped give both my parents a good send off!
Response from Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. I am happy that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service for your parents and that we managed to make the day run as smoothly as possible for you.

Donna, Chris and the whole team at Frances Chappell & Sons provided an exemplary service for the funeral of my friend Peter Watson at Beckenham Crematorium last December. From the initial meeting at the Orpington office, the manner and tone was highly sensitive and the advice was practical and straightforward led by Donna's level-headed expertise. The day of the funeral was no less sensitive and professionally handled. I found the experience a faultless one. Thank you, Hywel David

From the moment we first approached Francis Chappell & Sons in The Walnuts, Orpington regarding our mother’s funeral arrangements, we encountered a professional service. The staff were kind, compassionate and helpful. Everything went exactly as we’d hoped it would do on the day of the funeral. The celebrant conducting the service was lovely. It was a nice surprise after the service to receive a memory box and a photo of our mother together with frame. Francis Chappell helped relieve some of the stress from our family’s shoulders at a very sad time.
