At such a difficult time for my family, the service we were given by everyone on behalf of W Heighton was so caring and personal. My mothers funeral was carried out with such thought and kindness, I would like to thank everyone involved, especially Imogen and Maggie.

From Jane who took the first call after Auntie had died, to Sally who dealt admirably and meticulously with all the local, detailed arrangements at the Oadby office, nothing was too much trouble. The open invitation to 'ring us if you want to know more, or think of anything we haven't covered' was sincerely meant, and gave me a feeling of confidence throughout the process. The whole journey throughout was seamless and faultless. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Response from W Heighton & Son Funeral Directors
We are incredibly grateful that you took the time to leave us this review. It’s good to hear that you and the family received helpful guidance through this time and that the final wishes for your Aunt were carried out to the highest standard.
