The service provided by Sears was excellent. Vanessa was very efficient and everything went smoothly prior to and one the day itself.

Never organised a funeral before and Sears were so helpful. Walked me through the process with sympathy and understanding. They were always there to offer advice and the service went off without a hitch and was a lovely celebration of my mother's life. I would gladly recommend their services for any funeral arrangements

Very professional service with personal touches. Nothing was too much trouble.The dignity shown to the deceased was excellent. Vanessa waiting outside the branch as we went pass was a lovely touch. The only slight criticism was with the final invoice, the aforementioned discount wasn't applied as well as the ministers charges being charged twice. This was rectified straight away but at a difficult time it was upsetting. The replacement invoice was swiftly sent, but an apology would not have been amiss.
Response from Sears Funeral Directors

We are very happy to hear that you were pleased with the services of Sears Funeral Service and that our staff were professional and you felt that nothing was too much trouble. Please accept our apologies regarding the oversight of the duplicated items on your invoice, which you advised was rectified the same day.

I cant fault the care and commitment vanessa Mike and collection staff provided at one of the saddest times of my life. Vanessa was absolutely lovely kind considerate and caring nothing was to much trouble for her always offering genuine comfort and a coffee even on the day I laid my dear mum to rest on driving past the office that lady stood outside in the cold in honour of my mum. Both vanessa and Mike are a total credit to Sears. I will be forever grateful to them both as I will forever mourn my mum. Thank you does not come close to the gratitude I have.
