I was impressed with the wonderful and professional service provided by everyone at Emberson's from beginning to end. Their commitment to making sure everything was just right for us was fantastic, down to the smallest detail. They did all the things you would expect of a funeral director of course but the way things were done made it special. They kept in close contact as the funeral arrangements were being made and afterwards as well. The design and print of the excellent order of service booklet that I thought would be an extra cost turned out to be included as part of the service! On the day itself the team were faultless. I can't thank them enough.
Response from J W Emberson Funeral Directors

I cannot fault the service we were given from start to finish.
Darren was in constant contact and helped in any way he could, very professional and understanding. Thankfully this is not something you do often so to have the guidance and support from this service was very much needed and appreciated.

From the time I contacted Embersons regarding my brother's funeral they were nothing but professional and so very helpful. I felt completely secure that everything I needed was there for the asking. The funeral was exactly how I wanted - a lovely tribute to my brother. Thank you.

Excellent service all the way through, nothing was a problem at any time of day or night, everything we asked for was done with respect, professionalism and even with some humour when needed as that is how we as a family wanted it to be because that's how my Dad was, it was a pleasure dealing with everyone. The family of Fred Farrall thank you all.

Our assigned director was Darren. From the beginning he was very friendly and offered us a lot of support.He talked us through what will happen and what we should do. We were able to see our late mother when ever we wanted to and told just to ring. On a couple of occasions we did wait awhile to be answered but that's the only thing that wasn't 100%. As funerals go I think it was done perfectly and everyone said it was a lovely service.

The service was outstanding in every respect. Thoughtful and sensitive, no request was too much to ask and all our wishes were observed with precision and compassion. It was wonderful to have had Darren conduct the funeral, as he had done 18 years ago for mum, especially as dad had mentioned him by name in his letter of wishes to us. The whole process was smooth and seamless, allowing the family to focus on the most important thing at this time. We cannot praise you highly enough. Thank you so much.

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
