    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.

    Service was very efficient and very dignified. The items included in the package were given in a very misleading way leading to an additional charge of £250.00 which the two of us present were to say the least very unhappy about. I would recommend the service but warn to not accept anything other than a full written quote to show what is included, as they can say anything after the event.

    I would like to thank all the staff at Embersons on behalf of myself and my sister as we thought their service was excellent. They attended to all our needs and did a first class service during the few weeks over Christmas when our mum passed away. They were caring, considerate and exceptional attention to detail. They even provided regular welfare checks for me and my sister to see how we were coping after mum's death. Their service was excellent and we thank you again for all that you did.
