I'd like to take this opportunity to thank and give a review of Birtwistle & Rishton.
From the first call and the organisation from Fleur and Lisa, which were both fantastic. On the day of the funeral Susan was brilliant with her care of my mother and the family.
I wouldn't have any hesitation to recommend their services.
Thanks again,
Paul Carbery
