    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.
