    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.

    I found that John Kemp afforded me extremely good service after the recent. loss of my wife.
    The staff ( especially Lorraine ) were professional and treated you with dignity and respect.
    Everything was dealt with quietly and efficiently which made things so much calmer in what was
    a very traumatic time.
    I can't thank you enough
