    Everyone at Ginns and Gutteridge ensured that the service we received was compassionate and respectful from start to finish. When arranging the funeral the director went that extra mile to speak to the coroner on our behalf. On the day of the funeral, all the directors were informative, making sure we all knew what was going to happen when. They supported family members who were being pall bearers with a calm & patient attitude, ensuring everyone felt comfortable. There was always a sense that they looking out for you. One got down to my 5 year old grandson's level checking he was OK... and asking him if he wanted a job as they were dressed the same! When I went to collect my Dad's ashes, the director was warm & welcoming but also concerned for my wellbeing. As for the cost of it, we as a family respected our Dad's wishes for a simple funeral, nevertheless we all felt we received personal and thorough attention at all times. One point to make though are there are added costs for the minister, cremation and doctor which were not in our original quote.

    Thank you for your review and your kind comments. We are so pleased to know that you were satisfied with the service we provided. Our price lists show our fees only and disbursements such as cremation fees etc are extra - I do apologise if this was not explained at the time.

    At what is a very difficult time, Ginns and Gutteridge make the funeral arrangements of a loved one much easier to cope with. Their professionalism, their empathy and their whole manner from first speaking to them to the funeral itself, nothing is too much trouble for them. They helped me throughout the time I dealt with them and made me feel as if they truly cared about my loss.

    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.
