    My fathers funeral was dealt with great compassion and empathy and our dealings with Ruth who made all the arrangements was exceptional she took great care to make sure everything was as we wanted it. She ensured that she explained everything fully regarding the arrangements and I cannot fault her attention to detail. The Celebrant Gemma gave a wonderful service and captured my father life down to a t! David on the day took great care of my mother and made sure everything went smoothly and unhurriedly. So thank you Priestly and Cocket for taking care of us all

    We mainly dealt with two members of staff: Dan and Ruth
    We were given all the information we needed and advised about anything we were not certain of
    On the day itself we were met by Dan at the church and he made what would have been a traumatic day into a day that we could concentrate on the funeral of our loved one as everything else was done on our behalf.
    I would highly recommend Priestly and Cockett

    From my first contact with Priestley & Cockett right through to my dear friends funeral and after, I couldn't have wished for a more appropriate send off for Carole (exactly how she would have wanted it).
    All the staff members were very professional and caring, talking me through every step of the way.
    I would like to thank them for the photo of Carole and the lovely memory box. Little touches that mean a lot.
    Thank you for your kindness,
    Kind Regards, Rosalie Brammer.

    Very friendly but professional service with the appropriate amount of thoughtfulness given the circumstances. Everything went as planned and the service provided took away any worries we had. Ruth/David and the team should be proud of the service they provide. Thankyou

    My Dad passed October and we were dealt with compassion and kindness my Mum was put at real ease throughout. In December my Mum passed and the care they gave myself was outstanding. I do not know how I would have coped without that special team my heart felt thanks are with them.

    Amazing service, extremely helpful and compassionate. We used Priestley & Crockett for my father’s funeral too, and when we met with David to arrange Mum’s he told us that he remembered her. This actually meant lot to myself and my sister. He was very caring and considerate throughout the whole procedure and on the day. We cannot thank him enough for making a tough process and day so much easier to deal with.

    From the moment we walked in we felt looked after by the whole team of people. Ruth explained everything to us and what would be needed from us. David was caring, taking time to remember us from a previous time we had used their services. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone from us visiting the chapel of rest out of work hours to the service on the day. The order of service was personal,Ruth even suggested a Vulcan plane as this was an important part of Keith’s life. The large photo of Keith at the service was a wonderful surprise and a welcome one for us. Thank you. I would and have recommended their services to others as it made a sad occasion more bearable. Thank you.

    My first contact with Priestley and Crockett (P&C) was in 1980 as they handled my fathers funeral. Mum was suitably impressed and requested I use them when her time came. Sadly the time to reacquaint myself with this company came in September 2018 following my mums death. Although a different company now I have nothing but praise for the current (P&C). The family received a first class service and I know my mum would have been proud of the professional service she had. I dealt with David and Ruth, both were excellent and so helpful. They managed to be professional and compassionate at the same time. The whole experience although incredibly sad and difficult was made easier by these two lovely people. I would not hesitate to recommend P&C to anyone. Thank you.

    Priestly and Crockett go out of their way to provide an exemplary service at such a difficult time. I cannot recommend them enough. The foresight of the pre paid funeral plan makes everything so much easier.
