I have used the services of JW Emberson four times in the past 2 years. Darren our funeral director for each of those funerals has been dignified, professional and made sure our final goodbyes where perfect. I wouldn’t hesitate to call him should I need to in the future.
A big thank you to Darren and all the staff at JW Emberson.

We found the service we received from J W Emberson impeccable , I was solely responsible for looking after my aunts affairs and with my husband being very unwell found it to be overwhelming, but with the help of the extra special funeral director who found nothing to be to much trouble it went without a hitch.
The care and compassion shown was second to none.
I have absolutely nothing but the highest praise and will be eternally grateful to them.

Our experience with Embersons from the beginning to end was more helpful than we could of asked for, all the staff we met were extremely friendly and sincere. Our funeral director helped us to organise the funeral we wanted and nothing was too much trouble, having never had to do this before he completely put us at ease and took all the pressure off us, he kept us in touch regularly and became more like a friend during the process. Our Dad was treat with utmost dignity and the compassion shown towards us was second to none.

From my initial discussion with the funeral director it was very clear my fathers passing would be handled with dignity and care. David proved to be very caring and had a consistent attention to detail. His communication was excellent and this went above and beyond business hours. During this very difficult time my family and I received nothing but genuine support. This support extended to the rest of the staff at J W Emberson who were always on hand to answer any queries we had.

Brian has helped to arrange both my mother-in-law's and my mother's funerals during the past 4 months. On both occasions he showed nothing but compassion and he made very thoughtful suggestions which we appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and with his help we were able to make their funerals very personal to them.

Having had no previous experience of having to organise a funeral, Embersons were incredibly supportive and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend them and will certainly go back to them myself.

From the minute we got in touch with J W Emberson we felt they dealt with us with so much respect and compassion. It felt like they took the weight of my shoulders, Brian was there at every turn and to advise and assist. He kept in touch to ensure things were going as smoothly as I had expected and too see how the family was coping even after the service. In the end I felt like Brian was a friend he was so compassionate and caring.
I could not fault any of the services offered and that J W Emberson went above and beyond with their duties. I would not hesitate to recommend J W Emberson and most definitely Brian who was an absolute diamond.

The team could not have been more helpful and sympathetic. Our family have used J W Emberson for quite a few family funerals in the past and were our only choice to take care of our mother. Their personal service and guidance throughout this painful period was exceptional, we cannot thank them enough.
