I would like to say a huge thank you to you all for your support and kindness throughout the process of arranging my fathers funeral. This was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. Denise and Helen were absolutely fabulous when helping me go through the process. Liz Wagstaff did a beautiful service. Step by step I was guided through each stage. My family was able to say goodbye to our dad in a way he would have been proud of. I plan to use your company to create my own funeral. The costs for the funeral was a great price. Everything went perfect on the day. So again Thank you so much for everything. Gaynor Gascoigne and family

The help I received from C Selby & Son was all that I could have asked for. I felt that I really mattered and that so much was organised for me but with all my wishes taken into account. I was given an information pack as well as being talked through all the options available. On the day of the funeral I was phoned by the person who would be with us at the funeral. She was brilliant. I would recommend this company to anyone. It was recommended to me by a dear friend who had used them the previous year. It was an excellent choice.

Excellent service from all staff members: a mourning and bereaved family couldn’t ask for more.
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.
