From start to finish, my mum and us as a family were very well looked after. It wasn't just about providing a funeral service for mum but the care and attention they had for my family was beyond what we expected.
Billy took care of everything and walked us through all that we needed to do. She was approachable and responsive at all times.

We are really happy with Joseph Swift and would gladly recommend their service!

Overall the experience was a very good one. Billy was kind and caring. We had expected, however, that the service itself would be a little less religious - perhaps we did not make this clear to the celebrant.
