Wolstenholmes recently directed my late mums funeral and I can’t thank them enough. Laura was lovely, she was supportive and informative throughout and the service was perfect. Just what my mum would have wanted. The whole team were professional throughout.

From the first phone call we had excellent service. We mainly dealt with Laura who was professional and considerate at all times. All the staff we had dealings with were lovely and it made the situation much easier to deal with.

What can I say, this company and their staff were wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble. From the arranging of the funeral of my husband and the funeral itself. The service was read by Sue with such feeling and reverence, I cannot thank her enough. Even when visiting my husband at the funeral home. I was so taken aback in how well he looked. Asleep and restful, thank you Wolstenholmes for helping me to say goodbye to my husband in a very living and respectful way.
Response from Wolstenholme Funeral Directors

from the first point of contact I was made to feel at ease, Laura was amazing all the way through, the funeral directors treated my dad as if it was their own relative. They made the funeral journey seem effortless and communicated throughout. I wish to thank them from the bottom of my heart for all what they did for me and my family x
Response from Wolstenholme Funeral Directors

Laura was very patient and helpful during setting of up the arrangements. The staff did an excellent job of making Mum look more like she used to look and we asked Laura to pass our thanks onto them. All the other staff were most dignified on the day and it all went smoothly. I do think you should apply to the council to have double yellow lines placed on at least one side of the exit road as the poor and inconsiderate parking made it extremely difficult to get the funeral car out of the premises. The driver had to make several manoeuvres to get the car out with only about 1 inch to spare. He was very skilful but we felt sorry for him as it puts unnecessary stress on him and everyone else.
Response from Wolstenholme Funeral Directors
Thank you for sharing your sentiments with us regarding your experience. I am glad that we were able to provide you with the dignity and respect needed at this time and that you had the trust and confidence in our team to be able to deliver the service you expected. Thank you also for your valuable feedback which will be passed to the local management team.
Rating 5.0
Everything about the service was excellent, very professional, respectful and controlled to the requirements.
There were no negative aspects to the service, from the first time we were contacted by Laura, to the 'final' release of the ashes and the service conduction by Susan.
Whilst I hope not to have to use Wolstenholme in the near future, I would be pleased when they do my funeral.

The service provided by Wolstenholmes Funeral Service, Willows Lane, Accrington following the passing of our father Francis Fitzpatrick was excellent from beginning to end. The entire staff were very kind, caring, sympathetic and supportive and we could not have asked for more. I would certainly recommend Dignity for everyone during their time of need.
