    The service received by Donna and team was both professional and compassionate.
    Donna made sure everything went smoothly for my Mum’s funeral in August.
    This made it much easier on the day of the funeral for grieving family and friends.
    I would high recommend using Francis Chappell for any funeral arrangements you may have.

    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.
