We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after.
Rating 5.0
From the first call to Ruth, through to the arrangements and the funeral itself with Dan as the FD, I found the service to be excellent. The recommendation of minister (Fr Clay Roundtree) was brilliant and the service he gave was first class. I would recommend David Holland Funeral Directors to anyone.

As a former funeral director myself, having worked for Dignity I could not have asked for anything better for my mum

This was never going to be easy, but each and every member of the David Holland team certainly had a part to play, in what turned out to be an extra special last day for my mum. Such professionalism with compassion, everything done as if it were one of their own family members. Beautiful, individual touches, especially the order of service, the memory box and the beautiful framed photo. All made so simple from the initial phone call, advice, wanting to know what i wanted, not telling me. Recommending a celebrant, who was exactly what i was looking for, who also worked with them and myself, to make the whole thing run flawlessly. My mum would have loved her special day and there is not one single thing i would have changed. I cannot recommend them enough, just thank them all again, for looking after me, my family and especially my mum, on her final journey.

The funeral from the beginning to the end was very simple and went without any problems. Dignity were lovely over the phone as we're David Hollands. The staff told me step by step what would happen and when it would happen. I was able to ring at any time if there were any problems. It was a lovely service and all went well in these difficult times. Everything was social distanced to and managed well.

Dan and his team gave a superb service, providing advice and support to my family throughout our difficult time. They treated my mother with compassionate care and dignity - from her collection from her Nursing Home right up to the crematorium service and beyond. We were especially touched that they chose to wear yellow ties as that was mum's favourite colour.

Thought all of the staff that I dealt with were very understanding, although I was pleased with the arrangements and funeral I did think the price was far to high.
