The incredible care and compassion that was given to my late husband by the Talbot team helped me through the most distressing time of my life knowing that they continued to treat and refer to him as if he was still here with me was the kindest thing they did.
Their priority was making sure that my husband was well cared for at all times, everything was about him as it should be.

I cannot thank the team enough for assisting me through the process and giving me and the family access to visit my husband, even going out of their way to set up last minute access for family that had travelled up from the south, nothing was too much trouble for them and for that we are hugely thankful.
We had so many restrictions but we were able to personalise the service in our words and the choice of the person to read it out was again well thought and he delivered so eloquently on the day. Everyone who viewed on line remarked about the care that the staff took with the items that we shared with them on the day and how much their actions touched them.

Even retrieving and delivering the flowers and finally my husband back to me was carried out with dignity and care.

There are not enough words to express my heartfelt thanks.

Myself and the family were most satisfied with the funeral arrangements made for Rosemary. All were carried out in a professional and dignified manner and even though it was quite some time between her death and the funeral due to the Easter break, we were kept fully informed by Sarah whose help was greatly appreciated. The funeral vehicles and staff were a credit to the business.
Grateful thanks to all involved
