Such a professional service. Unfortunately, it’s the second time I’ve had plan a funeral but Sue at Hayes & English is so lovely, nothing is too much & is always so accommodating to my needs when planning etc. Fantastic service from Hayes & English. Everything was perfect & I honestly can’t fault anything, even during a pandemic, Sue made everything as normal as possible at an even more challenging time for us. Sue dealt with my nans funeral in such a professional & compassionate manner. Thank you so much.

Hayes and English dealt with my husbands funeral in a very professional and compassionate manner. There is absolutely nothing I could complain about. My point of contact Sue was extremely helpful in every way possible. Obviously due to Covid19 there were certain things that we could not do which under normal circumstances we would have been able to do but we were able to give Sue items to put in the coffin and could see the closed coffin. Again everything was sorted and dealt with very professionally and in a compassionate matter. I would not hesitate in recommending Hayes and English, Hoxton branch if unfortunately you need the services of an Undertaker.

From the first discussion with Sue to the end was fantastic.
Sue made the whole experience easy, smooth and professional.

Sue was always on hand to answer questions and requests/questions were dealt with straight away.

It was a lovely day and the lead was continually providing us with what would happen in a professional and sensitive manner.

Hopefully I will not need to use Hayes & English soon but when I do, I will defiantly be contacted them.

I can't recommend Hayes and English enough. After sorting out the death certificate, I phoned to see if I could drop in on my way home to arrange the funeral. Sue went out of her way to fit me in before her next appointment and everything was arranged perfectly.
Everything on the day went without a hitch and Reverand Andrew was brilliant, even with the scant information we supplied.
