    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
