Reviews of J H Kenyon / J Hemp Funeral Directors
From the moment we called Valerie at Kenyon's we felt reassured by her calm and warm presence. She was so very kind and considerate. No problem was too small or too ridiculous or too complicated for her. I don't think any of us would have got through the absolute horror of holding a funeral for our father without her. I know that she must be like this for everyone of her clients but she made us feel that we were special and deserving of extra attention.
The day of the funeral was so hard for all of us but thanks to Valerie and Fabio it was perfectly organised and we did not have to worry about anything other than our loss. We are all immensely grateful to Valerie.
