Monica at our branch was lovely - calm, reassuring and was easy to ask the most silly questions without feeling a fool.
Nigel and his team were fantastic on the day - they treated my father with utmost respect and were considerate and caring of my mothers needs at the loss of her husband after nearly 66 years married.
Sarah our celebrant - so caring and thoughtful, nothing was too much effort.
If this was any other type of service you would say come again!

Monica arranged everything very well. Stephanie was great on the day. Sarah Port, the Celebrant Monica introduced me to, was truly excellent and the Obitus live-screening was really good.

The whole process,although carried out by telephone and email,was professionaly carried out by Monica with no fuss or stress. The celebrant, Sarah, was faultless in liaison with myself ad Monica, and was brilliant in carrying out the service. Nigel, the undertaker, was able to put the family at ease on the day.If,unfortunately, the services of an undertaker are required in the future,I would not hesitate to recommend Maxwell Bros.
Thanks to all the staff from the family and friends.

We were very satifisfied with the service we received from Maxwell Brothers. The staff were very helpful and made the whole process of arranging the funeral straightforward. Although we opted for the simple funeral because of the current covid restrictions we were pleased with the arrangements and the service provided at the crematorium.

We were very pleased with all the arrangements for my Aunt's Funeral and Sarah Port, the Celebrant, conducted the service with such understanding and empathy that the service went exactly as we wanted.

The staff from Maxwells were all very polite and respectful at all times and made everything stress-free.

Thank you to Monica, Sarah, Stephanie and all the Maxwells Staff.

My father, brothers and sisters and I were truly appreciative of the warm and supportive manner in which we were allowed to proceed with the funeral arrangements for my mother.
We were allowed time for discussion, questions and we were assisted throughout the whole process. There was flexibility right until the day of the funeral allowing my family and I to make any last minute requests or changes. Communication was clear and open and responses whether via email, telephone or in person was always pronpt and reassuring.
We also noted the support the pallbearers gave to my brothers and family members whose wish it was to carry mum into the chapel. The pallbearers acted responsibly providing guidance with each step.
Due to the excellent support we received from Maxwell Brothers, my family and I were able to say 'goodbye' in a decent and orderly manner reflective of our mother and in accordance with her wishes. It was a beautiful service. We thank you for the professional and empathetic conduct of everyone at Maxwell Brothers.

Maxwells, and Monica in particular, were extremely helpful in arranging my aunt's funeral. I was able to make some of the arrangements at a Dignity branch near to my home rather than travel into London every time , which was a real bonus. They helped with all the details of the funeral and everything ran smoothly and with dignity. Christine
