Reviews of our services
My family would like to thank Paul,Joan and Linda for making our mums funeral very special and personal. Their compassion and professionalism is exceptional nothing was to much trouble.
When the day came we couldn’t of asked for more and all of our family and friends commented on how beautiful it was. Thank you again
All the team members with whom I spoke, including Paul, Linda and Joan, were always kind, caring and considerate. The team clearly wanted to do everything possible to ensure that my late aunt was given the best possible journey to her final resting place. I was touched by their attention to detail; they quickly understood what was important to my late aunt and made suggestions as to how these could be incorporated into the arrangements, including the placing of a bunch of daffodils (my late aunt's favourite flowers) into her hands, along with her prayer book. All the arrangements for the funeral and subsequent interment of my late aunt's ashes were particularly well organised, and everything ran very smoothly on the day. I, and the other family members, felt it was a fitting and dignified tribute to my late aunt, helped in no small part by the pallbearers who demonstrated such respect and dignity in carrying my late aunt on her final journey.
I have no hesitation in recommending H.& G. Wilde to families who, at a most difficult time, need a Funeral Director whom they can trust to provide a caring, compassionate, dignified and professional service for their loved one's final journey.
I would recommend to everyone.
and K the funeral lady was a absolute gem. Many I take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all involved. Sheila W
