With the deepest of gratitude to all the staff at Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors; their professionalism and kindness was exceptional. Despite the deep sadness of our loss, our experience was made significantly easier with all the help and assistance that we received. With special thanks to Chloe and Kerry for organizing and directing Sylvia's beautiful funeral, she would have been proud of them. Thank you Francis Chappell - your excellent service will always be remembered with much appreciation.

At our first meeting Jennifer was so understanding and explained in detail what needed to be done writing out a list of all the things to consider.
Throughout the whole process Jennifer was thoughtful and considerate. Kerry, our funeral director, explained exactly what was going to happen on the day in a very caring and sympathetic manner.
On the day Kerry was always in attendance looking after us. Louise, our civil celebrant, was wonderful. A number of attendees thought she had known my wife from the way she delivered the eulogy.

At a very sad, emotional time the arrangements ran very smoothly, with Jennifer organising and guiding us at every stage. Kerry our funeral director was very professional. On the day of the funeral it ran like clockwork.

The staff were very considerate and at the same time instructive, at the initial meeting, so I knew what had to be done. The actual funeral took place with perfect timing, consideration for everyone and without a hitch.

Rating 5.0
Francis Chappell & Sons of Sevenoaks recently organised my late mother’s funeral. Their efficiency and care for details took so much of the worry out of the day. Everyone associated with the event was lovely and they were there to assist me through each stage of the process. I have had substantial feedback from attendees about what a fitting tribute it was.
