All arrangements were easily arranged and went to plan thank you

Very pleased about the service. The two ladies at my branch were really helpful, friendly and kind. Furthermore they helped me out with arrangements that I did not have much experience with e.g. flowers. Also they told me that I should look out for my own wellbeing - good advice. On the day everything went really smoothly - the funeral director and driver were brilliant. Given the difficulties with Covid restriction I thought it was a lovely service. thank you.

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.
