The service provided by Southborough Funeral Directors was exceptional.

From start to finish, the staff made the whole process very easy and pressure-free. We were guided through every step of the arrangements, and were given the time and support we needed to make the necessary choices.

Communications were great, and we were kept up to date throughout.

On the day of the service, everything ran smoothly and professionally, and we were able to give my father the send if he deserved.

The aftercare service has also been very good.

We would certainly recommend using Southborough Funeral Directors.

I was very pleased with the service I received from Southborough Funeral Directors. This was my first experience in organising a funeral and was fortunately a very positive one. I felt treated with kindness and sensitivity thoughout and as though nothing was too much trouble.

I was contacted promptly, updated regularly and all my calls were returned immediately. Helena was very compassionate, empathic and professional, she listened carefully to all my concerns and requirements and provided helpful and understanding advice and solutions. Mike was very pleasant, friendly and respectful, made useful suggestions and ensured that all went well on the day with all covid regulations adhered to.

Additionally, I was delighted with the quality of the floral arrangements and funeral stationery as well as other touches included which I felt were all excellent value for money.

In the unfortunate event I am required to arrange another funeral, I would not hesitate to call Southborough Funeral Directors who guided me though a sad time and made the unwelcome task of organising a funeral infinitely more bearable.

Southborough Funeral Directors dealt with the funeral arrangements for my mother extremely efficiently and sensitively. They took us through everything we needed to do and what options we had. The funeral service itself was very well organised and it ran exactly as had been explained. I would recommend them to friends and colleagues.

I would definitely recommend Southborough Funeral Directors.
All the staff were extremely professional and went out of their way to help make the whole experience and the day of the Funeral stress free.
They were available to answer any questions that we had, and advised / guided us on the order of service.
On the day of the Funeral they called to say everything was organised and if we required any thing else, which I thought was extremely nice and put my mind at rest.
