Cannot fault Maskell and Uden at all. They provided a terrific service from finish to end. Their professionalism, courtesy and empathy was spot on, as were their recommendations. Would definitely recommend them.
Response from Maskell & Uden Funeral Directors
We always appreciate receiving comments, it enables us to provide the right care for each family. I am pleased to hear that our team were so accommodating and their recommendations were helpful.
Rating 5.0
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.

Very efficient and caring service. Debbie was so sweet and helpful, like one of the family. All our wishes were catered for and all the guests were most taken with the respectful and sympathetic way it was handled. My profound thanks to all concerned. It was done with care and love.

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.
