The individuals (Sally) that dealt with me were excellent and very caring.

However I felt that the business represented and came across as a very corporate organisation. My expectations of a funeral service Is probably somewhat old fashioned but I expected a local service that actually felt local.

Whilst I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I wouldn’t recommend this provider I would probably say to anyone planning a funeral try and seek an independent operator

It would appear that most independent looking operators are in fact part of a larger corporate body so check before you part with your cash.

Absolutely no reflection on the individuals that dealt with me but the overall feeling was that of a cold profit making organisation.

Indeed prior to being sent this review request I was contacted by someone that had clearly been reading from a script to pre-empt a good review, a fairly transparent tactic and one which I did not appreciate.

I will be utterly amazed if this makes its way onto any platform.
Response from W Heighton & Son Funeral Directors

We have sadly, in a matter of months, said goodbye to both our mother and father. Heighton's have been wonderful, very caring, great communication and on the day of the service looked after us magnificently.

Couldn't have asked for better in such sad circumstances
