    We used H Whalley & Sons for my mother's funeral in 2013 and were so impressed we used them again for my father's in May 2019. The staff were very professional, helpful and approachable and we would highly recommend Whalleys. We took out a prepaid funeral plan just weeks before my father passed away and that made planning the funeral so much easier as many of the decisions were made dispassionately.
