Every person I dealt with at Swifts was polite, courteous and very helpful. Nikki at Saffron Lane dealt with all my queries extremely well and kept me up to date at each stage at this sad time. Two days before the funeral, I realised that I would like a lock of my mum's hair but thought I would be too late. On the funeral day it was given to me tied with a bow in a little cellophane packet which I will treasure.On the funeral day, Nikki was away on a course and Maggie oversaw the funeral perfectly from Swifts to the church, to the crematorium and on to the wake.From beginning to end Swifts dealt with mum's funeral with dignity and respect.

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
