Reviews for C Selby & Son Funeral Directors in Leytonstone
Funeral Directors. Denise was very helpful, her warmth, kindness, support and professionalism enable the family to get things done. We
cannot praised Denise at C Selby & Son enough. We would recommend C Selby & Son Funeral Directors to anyone. We give them top marks.
Numerous helpful phone calls were received regarding the funeral plans and all was made very clear.
On the day car arrived promptly and we were dealt with professionally and politely.
A difficult day was made easier. Thankyou.
From the initial enquiry , right through to the actual burial, all staff members were supportive, helpful and informative with a calm and reassuring manner, which is just what is needed at a time of grief.
The Order of Service was beautifully produced, even after many requested changes. My father was laid out exactly in the way requested and the chapel of rest was suitably furnished, with just the correct amount of lighting.
I would recommend your funeral home to anyone else for such a personal service.
Thank you very much from all my family for making my father’s funeral, although extremely sad and poignant, a happy celebration of his life with close family and friends.
