All my love Julyann Webb.x
I was particularly grateful for their assistance with arranging the details of my brother’s funeral and their ability to manage donations for our chosen charity. This made it easy to send friends and family the link to all of the funeral arrangements and all the necessary travel information etc.
This is our family’s second occasion of using J H. Kenyon’s service and we are most grateful for their ability to organise everything to run so smoothly and in such a dignified manner.
I have no hesitation in recommending them to all.
