Rating 5.0
Ginns and Gutteridge have recently helped us through a very difficult time that as a family we have not had to face before. We were treated with such kindness and sensitivity together with a professionalism that made us feel in very safe hands throughout. Nothing was too much trouble. When on the day we saw the reassuring face of Scott it was like seeing a member of the family. The day should not have felt a happy one as indeed we would all rather not have had to organise it at all, but it was so beautifully tailer made for our precious Father that between us and Ginns and Gutteridge we truly felt that we had done our very best for him. The whole team have a gift of knowing how to look after you in such fragile times. Our dearest Dad was such a polite and dignified man that this celebration of his life reflected that in every way and we are so very grateful to this wonderful company for all that they did for us.
