The service was excellent from start to finish. Our main contact was Fiona, and she was very professional with the correct level of empathy at all times. In all, it made a difficult time almost a pleasure.

Can’t thank Fiona enough for make it so much easier at such a sad time.
She was there to help our family through the arrangements every step of the way. Natalie was also a big help when fiona was available.
On the day of the funeral Graham and his team couldn’t have made things any better in these very strange COVID-19 times. Our family can’t thank them enough. A Murphy
