Taking place during the global pandemic a number of restrictions had to be put in place, but these were all reasonably implemented, and the service we received from start to finish was at the same excellent level we have come to expect from the staff at the Catford branch, who have assisted with a number of other family funerals in the past. Thank you to Caroline (our funeral arranger), as well as the rest of the team, for assisting us during this most difficult time.

From start to finish the kindness, support and excellent service was received from the great staff at the Catford Branch.

Rating 5.0
I thought that the service from Francis Chappell was exemplary. Considering the restrictions because of the pandemic I found the staff very warm and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt I could trust them to look after all the arrangements with care and attention. Because of the circumstances around my sisters unexpected death I have had a lot of bureaucracy to deal with so it was a great relief to know that the funeral was one thing that I didn't have to worry about.

The day went smoothly and it was a beautiful service. Everyone was respectful and the celebrant that Francis Chappell recommended was wonderful and really worked hard to understand my sisters character and gave a beautiful eulogy.
