Everyone was very caring and professional. Even with restrictions we were able to have a ceremony that recognised how individual, beautiful and loved my daughter was. I would particularly like to thank Tierney for all her care and kindness during the time leading up to the funeral. I would also like to thank Amy. She was so caring and efficient at the funeral in making sure everything went smoothly.

From the first moment I called, Tierney was incredibly professional, kind,caring and left me in no doubt at all that my uncle would receive the very best care amd attention. The team that looked after myself amd my family on the day were fantastic, a really lovely send off for my uncle with a webcast organised also so that family that were unable to attend could still pay their respects. Thank you Tierney and team.

Rating 4.0
The first funeral director I spoke to became ill after the first week and everything was transferred to The Archway. I found them very helpful there in spite of having two more changes of funeral director. The last funeral director was very helpful on the day of the funeral and everything went ahead very smoothly. I was grateful that the Dignity plan had been put in place prior to my brother dying. Thank you
Response from William Beckett Funeral Directors
