From my first contact with Mildred’s I felt supported totally. Fortunately my mum had taken out a funeral plan which helped enormously with the arrangements. Hannah was excellent at her job. The atmosphere at the funeral home was perfect. Calm, clean and comfortable at a time when everything is stressful. I felt I hadn’t given lots of information about anything as my mind was in turmoil, but everything came together seamlessly with exactly what we wanted.

I am now considering doing a funeral plan myself as I very much appreciated that my mum spared us the anguish at a horrible time of deciding what she would want. I don’t want my own sons to have to organise everything for me.
Response from F L Mildred & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. I am happy that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service for your Mother. It is always good to hear that individual members of our team have provided a service to you to the best of their ability.

The lady that helped organise Dads funeral was caring,helpful and understanding, allowing us to discuss what we wanted and what Mildreds could provide. She also opened up out of hours on her week off so my family could see Dad.The lady on the day was also very supportive as were her'team'. We used Mildreds for my Mums funeral 14 years ago and my Mum used them for her Mum 43 years ago. Would definitely recommend them

Thank you for the care you took with the arrangements for my mother's funeral. Everyone was so helpful. The two people I had most dealings with were Hannah and Maggie, both of whom I can not speak highly enough of. They made a difficult time so much easier. Thank you once again.

Excellent support and service throughout from Claudia, Maggie and the team at a most difficult and traumatic time. Very caring and professional people. Likewise the support from 'external providers' who they work with namely the minister ( John) and equine staff ( Mum had 2 beautiful calm white horses Hugo and Felix and coach to take her to her final resting place) were 'first class'. When you are in grief and a 'dark place' as I was, they are the people to contact.

I would just like to say how wonderful everyone was that helped me organise my husband's funeral, to Claudia, and Julie the Celebrant. It shall never forget how caring and considerate these two people were in coordinating all the information for the funeral. The flowers were lovely, the service cards and how the funeral was conducted from leaving my home and everything at the crematorium and making sure we had the donation box, the flowers and his cap and the remainder of the service cards. It was a beautiful celebration of John's life which I will always remember thank you.
Kind Regards
Barbara Harper

Exceptional service for both my Mum and Dad's funerals over the past few months - always friendly, helpful and professional, whether dealing with issues around paperwork, planning the funeral, on the day itself and in the follow-up. Huge thanks to everyone at Mildred's.

Rating 5.0
At a very difficult time, more so because of the restrictions imposed due to Covid, I found all the staff that I dealt with, especially my designated contact at F.L.Mildred & Sons to be extremely helpful, caring and sympathetic. Nothing was too much trouble and the advice I received was invaluable, as this isn't something anyone does on a regular basis. All the procedures and processes were fully explained, as were the choices available for type of funeral, choice of casket, orders of service and flowers. I requested that my chosen floral arrangement was made in an alternative colourway-and again no problem. In fact at the actual service, everyone, without exception commented on this, being the exact colours they associated with my late cousin. Another nice touch was the keepsake box containing the orders of service and the lovely keepsake frame holding the photograph I provided.Thank you to everyone at FL Mildred & Sons who helped to arrange and carry out my dear cousins last journey.To anyone looking for a Funeral Director in the Leicester area, I thoroughly recommend FL Mildred &Sons.

I found the whole process was handled with calm and professionalism, everything was explained in detail re the choices that were available. The service went off smoothly and much better than I thought it would. I was particularly impressed with the celebrant, who wove the jumbled information presented to her into a sympathetic telling of my mothers life history.
All very much appreciated.
Response from F L Mildred & Sons Funeral Directors

Everyone I dealt with at F.L. Mildreds (Dignity Funerals) was very helpful, respectful and made a very difficult time easier to cope with. I always felt there was support anytime if I needed to ask anything and on the funeral day they made it easier to get through with their help and support. Thank you.

From start to finish the staff were professional, knowledgeable and caring. Although F L Mildreds are part of a big firm now I felt like I was being looked after by a family of workers who had the time to sit and make a horrible situation not so bad. I don't want to mention any names in particular as everyone has been supportive and it usually takes a team of workers to make the front line as good as they were. I would also recommend taking out the funeral plan especially if that awful time is looming as it's an opportunity to think about what your loved ones would like.
