This Funeral Directors has provided extremely good service for a number of cremations and funeral for my passed relatives. The staff have always been supportive with making arrangements and ensuring that everything is properly organised. They also have pre-paid plans available to reduce financial issues. They can also recommend florists and arrange Orders of Service in conjunction with clergy.

We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and being open with us about the service we provided. We understand how important it is to keep families informed and I'm pleased that our team did exactly that for you and that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service for your Father.

There were no glitches with the funeral service provided, and all personnel involved were professional. Any enquiries we had were promptly responded to, and the service appeared bespoke and personal. The personal touch of Laura returning my dad's wedding ring by hand was appreciated much by my mother, and demonstrated appropriate care.

The staff at DW Johns, particularly Laura, were kind, caring and supportive while being extremely professional. The service we received was excellent and their care and concern to ensure the funeral was exactly what we wanted and reflected the character of our loved one was a great comfort at an emotionally stressful time. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.

We found the staff, [mostly Laura],very helpful and understanding.Because we live in Shrewsbury all the arrangements and questions had to be dealt with by phone and e-mail. Laura was always there and provided all the help and advice we needed.

The celebrant whom Laura found for us was first class and managed to arrange the service and all the details also by phone and e-mail.

We thank you for helping us through this difficult time.

Unfortunately have had the use of D W Johns on two occasions since November 2018 - firstly my mum and 5 months later my dad. I would not have considered anywhere else to arrange such a special but sad occasion. All our wishes were carried out to the letter with grace and understanding. All staff are excellent and knowledgeable and very caring. As my dad died 5 months after my mum, when we went back the staff still remembered us and that eased the process of another funeral. Would highly recommend.

It is one of the most important decisions my family had to face. Who will handle our father after his death. As a nurse I believe that a person deserves to be given the same dignity in death as they should have in life.
DW Johns provided just that. My initial meeting with L, was caring, respectful & professional. She listened to what my father’s requests were gently guided me through to the actual funeral. Thank you.

O was a celebrant, who, in our opinion was outstanding. She worked with my brother to really understand my father as a the person he was. Thank you.

On the day the proceedings were co-ordinated by T. She and her team were nothing but excellent. We did not have to think of a thing. Just to focus on our father & family.

My deepest gratitude go to this team for their seamless care for my father & my family. Thank you all.

This is the second time we have used D W Johns & Sons in the last 18 months, may I say that the company are amazing. From the first enquiry to Laura, who was excellent at every perfect detail with all the arrangements to the organising of the order of services (both times were super) to the care of looking after my Uncle and Auntie when they were in their company. Both times we had Theresa who was the head person of the funeral, who walked in front of the funeral car for the set number of steps to organising our family as they wanted to carry the coffin in, she was brilliant and with so much compassion. Steve Clark the celebrate who took the service a lovely man with a good sense of humour is to be recommended. I have given 5 stars but if there were more stars I would have given more as everything could not have been better.
