Francis Chappell and more importantly the staff at our local branch in Orpington , Celia most notably handled everything wonderfully and compassionately. Even on the day the pall bearers and funeral director were very kind. I cannot recommend them enough.

I chose Francis Chappell & Sons for my mother's funeral because she had chosen you when my father died, so I knew she would approve. You provided a most sensitive and thoughtful approach, helpful both at the planning stage and on the day of the funeral. Many thanks for easing a difficult time.

All the staff were very supportive during our difficult time. Organising the service booklet was a big worry for me but both the staff and the Reverend talked us through the process and they gave us ideas, which we then took away and discussed for the final draft. We never felt rushed, from the initial meeting, visiting the chapel or the journey to and from the Crematorium. The whole experience was quiet and comforting.
