Our Mum had a prepaid funeral plan, with Preston Ireland Bowker in Morecambe/Lancaster as the chosen funeral director, who provided us with a card giving the plan number & a phone number to call when the time came.
From that first phone call we were treated with such compassion & given the full support & guidance we needed to organise all aspects of our Mum’s funeral. On the day of Mum’s funeral everything went so smoothly & it was a really beautiful tribute & send off. We would highly recommend Preston Ireland Bowker for a professional & excellent service from start to finish. Thank you so much to you all.

We were treated with care consideration,sympathy and kindness during and after the sad loss of our mother. The process was dealt with professionally and we were always made to feel that nothing was too much trouble.

The lady I dealt with was Elaine. She was kind, considerate and sympathetic, but was still very professional. She explained all the options available, and never once tried to hurry my decisions.
The funeral itself was carried out with professionalism and dignity, and I could not have wished for better for my brother.
I thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for your care and consideration at what was a very sad time for myself and family.
Response from Preston Ireland Bowker Funeral Directors

They were very helpful with all the arrangements for mums funeral and we felt like they went the extra length to help us give mum the funeral she deserved. Her time with them was dealt with dignity and respect and we were able to visit her whenever we felt like we needed to and nothing was too much bother. I would recommend Preston Ireland Bowker Funeral Home to anybody.

Joanne was very sympathetic and made the process easy, whilst being respectful of the situation. She explained everything well and was able to understand our wishes. The day of the funeral was flawless and Andrew conducted the service excellently making it a celebration of my fathers life. On the day David quietly ushered all guests to their places with respect and also made a courtesy call at a later date to ensure that all had gone well and again to offer is condolences.
