Before, during, and after, our father's recent funeral your thoughtful and kind support was unstinting throughout, so cannot thank Darren and the whole team at Macaulay Street enough for everything they have done to help make Frank's death just a little easier for us (his family) to process. The service we received from J W Emberson was quite excellent, and the flowers were absolutely beautiful, whilst the 'little added touches' you made to Dad's order of service booklet were all very much appreciated.
Will you please accept all our heartfelt thanks for everything.
Response from J W Emberson Funeral Directors
We always appreciate receiving comments, it enables us to provide the right care for each family. Your comments will provide great encouragement to the team to keep doing their job to the best of their ability. I am happy that we provided a professional service to you.

Dear Brian

Thank you for the kind and attentive service you provided for the funeral of our friend Esther Cudmore.
We appreciated your advice and the way in which all the arrangements were conducted particularly in view of the present restrictions.

Kind regards

I would like to thank Darren especially, and of course his team, for his kind caring manner. We were well informed and cared for at every stage during a difficult time. We would recommend Emberson’s to other families, and were impressed by the respect and dignity given when taking care of mum. Thank you.

I rang provisionally in early November 2019 as my mum had terminal cancer and wanted to speak to someone about possibly booking a plot at the graveyard near my parents home. Not had to speak to a funeral directors before but I was put at ease straightaway by Brian who answered the phone. He took all our details and assured me that he would take care of everything and steer us the right direction when the time came. As it turned out our beloved father died on 22nd November unexpectantly, a phone call I don't think Brian was expecting! All I can say is how amazing he was throughout the whole process, he made the whole experience a lot more bearable for us, we had no idea what to expect as we were in shock to begin with. Five weeks exactly after our dad died our beloved mother died. Again Brian took hold of the reins and helped us so much, was a completely different funeral to dads but nothing was too much trouble for Brian and he took a lot of the responsibility off our shoulders, he spoke to us nearly a daily basis to keep us updated or just to check we were holding up okay. On the day of each funeral he kindly and reassuringly talked us through the whole process and was so unbelievably kind. I honestly cannot recommend Embersons highly enough and Brian for his professionalism, patience and care throughout.

We always go to Embersons in our time of sadness as they always take control of all the needs of your loved one that has passed and are very respectful, helpful and compassionate and nothing is too much trouble. They did my mum proud and the funeral was everything she had asked for and Darren checked in with me every couple of days to check I was OK and to tell me how the plans were going. Thank you Darren for making this very sad stressful time for all your caring support and help.

Could not have been more helpful at a difficult time.
They supported me through all the arrangements and kept in touch prior to the cremation in case of any worries or concerns especially as I live in Essex and the deceased resided in Lincolnshire.
The flowers were arranged by Emerson's which were beautiful.
There is nothing I can say that could have been improved. Therefore I highly recommend this service I felt it was very personal and I am very grateful.

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.
