We promise to listen to you carefully and help you at every turn. We have specially equipped facilities providing disabled access, a wash and dress area for those who need it, and catering services that can be used for the wake.

    Staff were sensitive to our needs, friendly and well informed. Information given was appropriate to our needs and staff allowed us plenty of time to consider the various options available to us. Advice given was helpful and the final check regarding the arrangements was reassuring. On the day of the funeral undertakers managed the entirety of the proceedings perfectly. Thank you all.

    From initial contact, to sorting final arrangements, general advice etc, the staff were both compassionate and sympathetic at all times regarding the sad loss the family were experiencing when speaking to us on the telephone or in person at the family meeting. We were kept informed at every step, which meant so much pressure was taken away from the family at this sad time. The additional service/advice provided by Dignity with the funeral plan has also been most welcome.
