The service provided was understanding and provided in a friendly and helpful way. We were kept informed of the progress of picking up my fathers body from the hospital which allowed the funeral to stay on schedule at a busy time of the year. I would certainly recommend others to use their service.

Joan and Paul were excellent at a very upsetting time . They handled everything with dignity and made the situation so much easier.
On the day of my Dads funeral they guided us and made sure everything ran smoothly.
Excellent aftercare service ,follow by a courtesy care to make sure everything had run smoothly .
I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone especially at a time when it is very upsetting.

Very straightforwards service. Kept us informed and up to date. Anticipated our needs. Very kind staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We had access to a large music library for the funeral music, so we didn’t have to mess around with providing our music of choice. Paul put us in touch with a lovely celebrant who did a beautiful service. They took all the anxiety out of the arrangements.

Everything was done according to our wishes. The funeral was dignified and we felt supported. Everything was explained and they dealt quickly with bookings and arrangements with third parties.

Rating 3.0
The service overall was professional and understated. Joan, who saw us through the whole process was everything we could ask for: kind, thoughtful, understanding without being gushy and practical.
We were told in advance about the 250 exta call-out fee but on reflection, this is a cheek: statistically most people die at the weekend or at night so it really is a hidden charge and a good way of raking in extra.
We only went for an unattended funeral. It would have been nice if the men collecting my dad had been dressed in something more respectful than black fleeces.
Overall, thanks to Joan.

From the moment I first called H.& G. Wilde and spoke to Joan, I knew that I would receive a very empathetic, kind and professional service.

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.

From the moment of contact the staff explained everything to me and what they could offer but by no means was anything compulsory. I was kept well informed right up to the day and everything on the day went just as I wanted. I also received a courtesy call a week later. All staff were caring, considerate and polite.

In such difficult times we had to deal with Karen helped us tremendously well. She went above an beyond. The support she gave us was amazing. She took time to listen to us an answered everything. She was there every step of the way. We couldn't have asked for a better service. Nothing was too much to ask. She supported us even after the service she was there to help. The flowers an the order of service which Karen sorted out were of a very high standard.I would highly recommend them.
