Scales carried out the funeral of my father in 1995 and my mother in 2010 and last month, the funeral of my brother, Ken. In all cases the service provided was of a very high standard. The procedure was explained in great detail and clarity and the attention to detail was first class. The actual day was conducted with great care and compassion and we could want for nothing more. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services when the sad time arrives that you need them. Terry Yeadon.

The yoing lady (L) was absolutely superb.Thoughtful,sympathetic and caring. It's was the first time I've lost a parent and I can't thank her enough for the help she provided at the most difficult time of my life.

Rating 5.0
At a very hard time the staff at Scales went above and beyond to make the laying to rest of my father a stress free and dignified process. My father wished for simple private funeral to celebrate his life and Emma and Susan helped us comply with his wishes, as my father had some extra care after his death everyone gave him a empathetic and dignified preperation for his final journey. The provision of the union jack to drape his coffin gave his final journey the sign of his services to his country throughout his life. The celebrant the Scales arranged gave us the perfect celebration and my father the final recognition of his lifes work. I would not hesitate to recommend Scales to anyone they are supportive proffesional and caring at a time when there are a lot of things to arrange and they walk you through every step and help make a difficut time much easier to manage.
