Reviews for W English & Son Funeral Directors in Bethnal Green
We realise that the last winter has been exceptional for everybody but we want to let you know that we cannot thank you enough for the service you provided.
From day 1 Janet at the Bethnal Green Road branch remembered me and gave me the upmost respect and help to arrange the funeral.
She kept me fully informed throughout regarding all the arrangements and on the night before Amy who led the funeral contacted me to make sure everything was in order.
I also had the same vicar attending who also remembered me and my family which gave us a great deal of comfort.
The funeral once again was 100% to my expectations and I would recommend their services to anyone.
They have since contacted me several times to ensure my wellbeing which is also very comforting.
Thoughout this period from 2019 to now I have been through the worst time of my life but they have been a source of comfort throughout.
Firstly We would like to Thank the staff of English's for conducting our Mothers Funeral, they are very professional at what they do and they conduct funerals with great emotion at a very sad time and they looked after us, all through the process of putting our Mother to rest.
Janet in reception is very good at her job and do it with the utmost sympathy and compassion she put us at ease fight from the start. She also kept us informed all through the process, so Thank you Janet. I certainly would not hesitate in telling people what a great firm English's is. THANKYOU from Robert and Keith (sons)of Mrs Nayler
