    All the staff were very helpful and professional from start to finish. Ruth was helpful the first time we went and on the day of Mum's funeral David was helpful whilst being very professional. I can't fault the service at all.

    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.
