    From the start of my interaction with the staff at Saffron Lane, they were attentive gave excellent care.
    Took any concern about how to organise the detail of the funeral.

    The service received by all of those involved and any contact made from staff was excellent.
    I cannot think of anything that could improve the service given.

    I cannot fault the service , everyone was so supportive I went to use another Funeral Director that my husband had taken a plan out with , it was so unprofessional that I walked out. I picked up the phone to Joseph Swifts and they were so supportive and took away all the stress I was feeling . My husband was a Leicester City fan so his funeral was football themed, even the staff from Joseph Swifts wore Leicester City ties. This was a 5 star service . Thank you all for your kindness at my time of loss x
