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.

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.
