Reviews of our services
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.
Thank you all
The manor in which we were dealt with was complete respect and dignity throughout. The support given by all the team was outstanding.
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.
