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.
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.
