Everyone was so compassionate and helpful. Lorraine explained everything and advised us well. All the staff on the day of my mother's funeral were respectful and very helpful - especially Jackie. The celebrant, Ashleigh, was excellent and spoke about Mum as if she knew her. Everyone enabled us to give Mum the send off she deserved. Thank you all very much.
