Response from Francis Chappell & Sons Funeral Directors
Thank you for your 4* review and kind words.

My late Aunt purchased a funeral plan through Dignity and selected Francis Chappell & Sons as the Funeral Directors. They had provided the service for my late Uncle ten years earlier. From the initial meeting, they handled everything professionally and efficiently. Although there were some items not covered within the chosen plan, Francis Chappell were able to provide these services, (flowers and the Order of Service) as well at a competitive cost. Prior to the Cremation, I received a call from the Funeral Director responsible on the day, to reassure me that everything was arranged and asked if I had any questions. He also said if there was anything over the weekend that I needed to ask I had his mobile number and was welcome to call. Everything went smoothly on the day thanks to their expertise.

Francis Chappell & Sons were very helpful and obliging happy to do as little or as much as we wanted them to. We were looked after before with lots of contact and also afterwards. No time pressures or extra stress added. They just took care of everything at a very hard time.
