Me & My Wife Were Treated With Compassion & Respect. We were both very impressed with Kimberly on organising mums funeral (Mary Valentine Belcher). We were so grateful to you for letting the hearse pull up outside of her bungalow, which Roy and Mary built together all those years ago. It was a lovely tribute and we thank you so much as it allowed close neighbours and mums carers to be able to stand outside and pay their final respects. Again we could not fault the service given by you all. And also to the minister John Bentham who gave a heartfelt service of what we wrote word for word. Kind regards Dave and Debbie Belcher.
Response from Joseph Swift Funeral Directors

Funerals are sometimes very somber and sad - with Swift’s Funeral Director’s we had a lovely service from them especially Sarah on Uppingham Road, Leicester she made us welcome and through the arrangements she was always there to answer any question’s we had. The Order of Service cards were very professional and a nice keepsake of our dear Mum.

I haven’t got any bad points whatsoever and would recommend them to anyone.

Thank You All Very Much

I would highly recommend Joseph Swift Funeral Directors. From arranging to the actual day, everything was taken care of with such professionalism and compassion. We used Joseph Swift 18 months ago for my Father and when Mum passed away in February we didn't hesitate to contact them again. I would like to thank all the staff involved in making a sad occasion so much bearable.
Response from Joseph Swift Funeral Directors

The service I received was just perfect, they helped me to plan my husbands funeral and carried out my wishes exactly as I wanted. I cannot thank Joseph Swift enough for the handling and care of my late husband. I didn’t want a religious service for him so a Celebration of Life service was carried out to perfection, I had my own pall bearers and they directed them every step of the way, the undertaker on the day was very professional and caring. I would highly recommend Joseph Swift for their service and care during a very sad time, I cannot rate them highly enough. Thank you all so very much.
