Sadly my Dad recently died, however I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Priestley and Cockett for their compassionate service and hand holding from start to finish. Everything was handled or arranged perfectly and nothing was too much trouble for them.
I was so impressed with their service that I sent a personalised thank you note.

The service provided was with total respect, we were kept fully informed and included throughout the process of arranging the funeral and was supported by Gill, Dan and the team with great care. When someone passes and you are dealing with a situation which is by no means a regular occurrence to be guided and supported so well is a great comfort. All the persons concerned were very professional and respectful on the day of the funeral and it is comforting to know that my husbands mother will have been treated with respect and dignity befitting of her. Thankyou to the team.

Priestley & Cockett have been the family's funeral directors for decades and so when we needed some-one to care for mother we turned to them. They devised the funeral plan with her when she was alive and followed it through providing an excellent service. The staff provided us with information we required to ensure all legalities were met so that we could place both mother and father's ashes in the same resting site in the cemetery.
The staff were always courteous, helpful and available when we contacted them. As a family style firm they provide the personal touch that at a time of grief is very much required.
Response from Priestley & Cockett Funeral Directors

It is now 3 weeks since my mother's funeral and cremation, as I look back on the last 2 months I have nothing but admiration and thanks to the team at Priestley & Cockett. My mother had a funeral plan, but this is the first time I have had to deal with a family bereavement. Priestley & Cockett gently guided me through all the procedures, adhering strictly to my mother's wishes, making us feel completely included whilst also leading with help on the paperwork and what to expect, when and how.
Thank you for easing ours, and my mother's path.
Response from Priestley & Cockett Funeral Directors

All staff who we contacted by phone were excellent. There was a funeral plan in place, your representative visited the house to fully explain the scope of the plan and additional services which were available if required. Your team had an excellent knowledge of the clergy and personnel at the Coroners office which were invaluable. Whilst Priestley & Cockett are part of a national business, they gave a personal service which was appreciated. We recently had a family funeral conducted by the local major competitor and your service was streets ahead of theirs. Please extend our thanks to all concerned, and in particular to those who attended on the day.
Response from Priestley & Cockett Funeral Directors

This was the second time that Priestley & Crockett had carried out a funeral for a member of my family. The whole experience from beginning to end was carried out in a very dignified and professional manner on both occasions. Everything was explained and well organised and they were very helpful if my family or myself had any questions or queries. I have been extremely satisfied with the services of Priestley & Crockett.

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

Rating 5.0
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
