Excellent service all round. Thank you very much.
Response from Maskell & Uden Funeral Directors
I am pleased to hear that the service was carried out to your satisfaction. Thank you for your review.
Rating 5.0
They were very supportive and caring with my mother in law and the family. The funeral was excellent in the current way things have to be done, all mourners told me how nice it was. As I was the one doing all the arranging I felt there was nothing I couldn't ask them. Debbie at Westgate was very professional and gave me great help. Thank you again for everything, will recommend highly. Mrs. Patricia Ward.
Response from Maskell & Uden Funeral Directors
It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. Your family continues to be in our thoughts and we are honoured to have been able to give you the service you needed.
Rating 5.0
The service provided by the team at Westgate earned the full 5 stars. The initial contact was both sensitive and informative, ensuring that we had a clear understanding of the necessary arrangements. Support for every element of the funeral was either provided or, where optional, offered allowing us to have the Service that we wanted. The team took care of all of the administration, very helpfully pre-completing various forms and helping us to fill in any missing details. The introduction to the Officiant and the Director of the funeral was made early on to allow unrushed, yet timely, progress towards the delivery of a lovely Service for our Mum. Thank you.
Response from Maskell & Uden Funeral Directors

As most people who use maskell and uden,our family were unfamiliar with the process one has to enter on the death of a loved one. From the first call to Debbie at Westgate, we were treated with professionalism and kindness. The first face to face meeting with Debbie could not have been more appropriate. She was patient,kind and informative. Before the service, we asked for a personalized order of service which included letters from two of my siblings who could not attend due to the Corona virus. This was arranged and the end result was exactly what the widow asked for. A meeting was arranged with Jason who was to lead the Christian service. He was also very kind. The service involved Lorraine and her colleagues and was without fault. Thanks to all involved. We would highly recommend the company.

I can't thank Debbie in the office enough for how she guided me through what was the worst time in my life. She helped me with patience and kindness and I was very pleased with everything - the Flowers, Coffin and Service book etc.
The Celebrant Kate was wonderful and felt like a friend I had known all my life. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to take the Service.
On the day it ran smoothly and I did him proud.
I would like to thank everyone who helped me give the most wonderful Man the best send off I could.

From our first visit through to the last we were treated with kindness, care and courtesy from all those who helped us through a very distressing time.
Nothing was too much trouble, no question or query was unanswered and no request was denied.
Our biggest thanks goes to Debbie, as without her caring and understanding the whole process would have been a very daunting experience.
