The staff made an unbearable situation bearable. They were always there to listen and support. They always arranged any requests really quickly and with their help, even with the virus, I got the funeral that I needed for my husband.

From first entering the premises the care and respect was first class. The fact that we were able to arrange a Greek Orthodox prayer into the service at the chapel and the support you gave me helped me through a very difficult time, including getting last minute service tributes printed . Once again thank you.
