I would like to thank H Towells for organising my fathers funeral. The main thing I felt was that I felt under no pressure throughout the procedure of choosing and organising the funeral. Leisa was very understanding, showed such empathy and kindness throughout.
Everything was organised at my pace and all my wishes were considered.
Even working under very restrictive Covid conditions Leisa was very thoughtful and everything was very professional.
The funeral itself was very simple, just what my dad would have wanted and many of the people who came or saw it by webcam have said that is what they would like for their.
Special thanks to Leisa for all she had done.

Everyone involved were very professional. On the day of the funeral mum was treated with all the dignity and respect she deserved. Everything taking place was explained and all our wishes taken into account.
We appreciated Maggie walking in front of the cars in the road where mum lived, an old tradition we thought had been lost.
Many thanks

Everything was taken care of, no detail was left out. Arrangements were made for evening chapel of rest time by the out of hours team, could not have asked for better. Everything explained and was done when they said it would be done, in a very difficult time, they allowed us peace and empathy.

At a very difficult time for the family we were treated extremely professionally at all times with sympathy, compassion and sensitivity. When we visited the Sileby office Petra was professional but also friendly and approachable. Nothing was too much trouble and, when we kept changing our minds over some aspects, these where handled without any fuss. All telephone calls to the local office and the customer service centre were dealt with professionally with an excellent telephone manner. Thank you.
