All arrangements were handled with sensitivity, professionalism and in a timely but respectful manner. The Dignity funeral plan made things easier at what is always a difficult time and proved to be good value for money. So much so that my brother intends to purchase one. My wife and I already have one and having seen my mother's pre-paid plan in action think it is a wise investment.
Our Funeral Director Tarnia did an excellent job and her handling of all the arrangements was first class. Nothing was too much trouble.
The print copies of the order of service were good quality, tastefully done and reasonably priced, as were the flowers.
Phil Hudd, the Principle Celebrant handled the service sensitively, professionally and helped us to relive moments from my mothers life with fondness and some humour for which she was well known.

I highly recommend Preston, Ireland and Bowker without reservation.

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.

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.
