Nothing was too much trouble for the team at Priestleys. They handled all of my requests brilliantly. The setting at the branch where they take you to discuss the funeral is perfect - quiet and relaxing. The staff listen to your thoughts and offer ideas to make the process easier and also take on so much for you so you come away feeling that you are being well looked after. The day of the service went very well too. All in all I can't recommend them highly enough.

First & foremost the whole family want to say how professional & friendly the whole team at Lincoln were. We were made to feel at ease straightway and nothing seem to much hassle. We never felt pressured about any decision we made. All our wishes were met without any questions.
One the day of the funeral, again all staff were kind & caring. They even had the personal touch of wearing purple ties, like Alan did in his picture.

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
