From the time we we went to arrange my dear mothers funeral until the day of the service we received excellent care and support, every aspect of the day was covered from arranging of the vicar to the order of service, at what is a very emotional time Highs made it easier to bare which we thank them so sincerely for.
We were very impressed with the high standard by of the cars and how smart the funeral director etc were, one other aspect I was very touched by was that each time the funeral director passed my Mothers coffin he bowed his head in respect, how lovely was that! THANK YOU HIGH'S

Absolutely excellent service from High & Sons. From my first meeting with Sue to arrange the funeral to the end of the day of the funeral their service was impeccable. Sue made my daughter and I feel so comfortable whilst we made the initial arrangements and offered advice if needed. Matthew, our dedicated Funeral Director, was extremely professional throughout, checking that things were alright and assuring me that mum was being taken care of. He and his colleague were perfect on the day of the funeral and extremely professional and respectful. Eric, our celebrant was also excellent, spending time with us to discuss what we wanted and getting to know us. On the day of the funeral he conducted the service wonderfully and, despite being a very sad day, it was all wonderful. My mum would have been very proud.

I would like to, once again, say a massive thank you to all at Highs for an impeccable service.

Excellent service by Sue & Rebecca in the office as well as full support from Matthew. The drivers & coffin bearers were respectful,smart & dignified. Eric, who carried out the service made my eulogy personal to his way of talking. Everyone thought he was the best person they had seen at a funeral. Overall 100 % satisfied.

We returned to R High & Sons after previously using them. Yet again what a wonderful professional service at such a difficult time. They are efficient and compassionate and take the pressure off of the person having to make funeral arrangements at a tough time. Again, everything ran smoothly and our Dad received the send off he deserved. It was lovely for those who wanted to visit Dad in the chapel of rest to be able to go without having to pre-arrange it. Very highly recommended.
