    From start to finish the staff all went out of their way to make a difficult time as easy as possible. All of my expectations were met and i was gently lead through the day of my father's funeral. I have never had to organise a funeral before but would have no hesitation in recommending your Lancaster Branch to anyone.

    Although Preston Ireland and Bowker wasn't our first choice we are so very pleased that our original choice of undertaker didnt answer our call. We had waited with our deceased mother for three hours waiting for a response from our original choice of undertaker and thats when we decided to try Preston Ireland and Bowker.

    They answered the call straight away and was with us withing 20 minutes. They were respectful.

    All of our wishes were met. We were kept well informed every step of the way. They really were such a lovely company to use. They went above and beyond and treated our mother with the up most respect and dignity that you would wish to have in such circumstances.

    Once the funeral had gone they call me to make sure we were totally satisfied with everything and if we needed any help with anything we just needed to contact them.

    My sisters and myself can't praise and thank them enough for making our mums last journey beautiful.

    Thank you Preston Ireland and Bowker.
