Everybody was so thoughtful and could not do enough to make things run smoothly. I was asked my thoughts at every stage of the process. The day went very smoothly again the staff were calm and communicated at every stage. Really appreciated everything taking the stress out of the funeral.
Response from Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors
We understand how important it is to keep families informed and I'm pleased that our team did exactly that for you.
Rating 5.0
As I had to co-ordinate my Auntie's funeral from a 260 mile distance I felt the communication for making the arrangements were exceptional and I was kept informed of any information that was needed at all times and in a very timely fashion. I addition to the distance and not being able to meet face to face with the funeral director we had the added complication of Coroners involvement and Christmas and New Year which obviously meant delays but once again the almost six weeks between the day my Auntie died and her funeral was made a more pleasant experience by Geraldine who is also a good listener. Sadly the family from Yorkshire were unable to attend the actual funeral due to the lockdown travelling restrictions but were able to take part via the webcast link which although ideal did give us the opportunity to give some closure and move on to the next step of the grieving process. When restrictions ease and it is sensible to do so we will be arranging a celebration of my Auntie's life linked into the interring of the ashes in Kent with her friends from Kent and the surrounding area.

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.

Rating 5.0
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.
