Very professional. Both Caroline and Becky went over and above expectations. Always ensured that I was aware of options, timelines and progress and kept me up to date with events.
On the day of the funeral service and committal the team involved were both dignified and helpful and showed the utmost respect and courtesy to all.

J. & A Porter have dealt with the funeral of both my parents in the last few years and I would recommend their team and services to anybody having to cope with the occasion of a death.

The team at Porter's couldn't have been more supportive and helpful when our father recently died. Everyone had all the time in the world for us. I was never pressurised but was given space and time to sort out my father's wishes. I indicated how we would like the service to be and it was like Cinderella's wishes. Everything just happened with the minimum amount of effort from me! The Order of Service was gorgeous as were the flowers! I was even allowed to take my therapy dog in to see dad and he came to the funeral. On our way home the funeral car dropped him off and we were taken to the wake. I cannot speak more highly of the service we received.
Thank you Porter's!

We can’t thank J. & A. Porter enough for all the help and guidance they gave us at this sad time. The funeral service itself was exactly how we imagined it, exactly as we planned it. Becky went through the service with us detail by detail and was so helpful and listened to everything we wanted to incorporate in the service.
On the day everything was perfect and so dignified. So many of our family and friends said what a lovely service it was. Choosing J. & A. Porter as our funeral directors was perfect for us and our needs.
Thank you so much for making our very sad day so perfect.

I found Porters to be extremely caring, thoughtful and very approachable. My mum had already done a funeral plan many years ago. She moved over to Lytham st Annes to be near her family and although the plan was made in another town Porter's made sure that everything ran smoothly.
Porter's on Windsor road Ansdell Fairhaven was a very relaxed place to come and see mum. The room were we said our last goodbyes was just like a small living room which felt very calming.
Thank you Porter's for helping us through this very difficult time.

From start to finish everyone we dealt with for my father's funeral was professional, polite and understanding. Dad had already arranged a funeral plan and Jennie was aware of this and therefore much of the planning was already in place. Jennie ran through the details, allowing us to make any adjustments and also arranged the celebrant who conducted the service. Everything was arranged for us which took away any additional stress for us. Highly recommended.

Despite having a pre-paid funeral plan for my wife Anita I had not really considered what would be required following her death. It was only when I contacted Jenni at Porters that I realised that I would require considerable help. This help from Jenni included planning the funeral, booking an appointment to register the death, disposal of the flowers and providing someone to conduct the non religious service. That person was Johnathon who spent a considerable time taking me through a possible service scenario and offering guidance and advice. That visit from Johnathon helped to take a lot of the pressure off what was going to be a very emotional period. Another person from Porters I would like to mention is David who was in charge of the funeral. His dignified but relaxed demeanor on the day meant that myself, our family and friends could pay our last respects to Anita in a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. On behalf of myself and my family I wish to thank all staff at Porters for their help before, during and after my wife' funeral.
