We have used Steven Near before and in the past they have provided excellent service. I'm so happy that they still continue to provide a personal, unique and excellent service. From start to finish, they have gone above and beyond what was required of them. Bev was professional and amazing as was Darren who cared beautifully for my mum. My family and I can't thank them enough x

The service provided by Stephen Near Funeral Directors in Grimsby was simply outstanding in every respect. The team was compassionate, knowledgeable, listening, sensitive and very, very efficient. They took note of everything the family wanted and made sure we were able to give a very beloved husband and father exactly the respectful and loving funeral he deserved. The team members, Bev, Caroline and Kerry were on top of everything – we never had to chase them, they made sure that all went smoothly at every stage. Their patience was excellent – they understood that this was a difficult and confusing time for us. Bev went over and above to source exactly the kind of music the family wanted. We’d like to thank them for their excellent service – they helped us through a very difficult time.
Response from Steven Near Funeral Directors

From the first time we spoke to your staff we felt at ease. They were welcoming, made us feel at home but also patient and caring as we made the arrangements to say goodbye to Mum. Everything was explained clearly and nothing was too much trouble. They laughed with us at our funny tales and gave us time to cry when we needed it. The arrangements were perfect for us. We couldn't have got through Mum's funeral without their support, suggestions and comfort. Thank you.
