I was very pleased with the service provided by Francis Chappell, in particularly Julie who was always very kind, warm and helpful. Julie was very clear about all the arrangements and kept me updated on all the planning. It really helped that there was someone to guide you through all that needed to be arranged.

On the day of the funeral the Funeral Directors were very considerate and made sure we were informed of the funeral procession and procedures.

I was very pleased to have chosen Francis Chappell and would recommend to others bereaved.

The staff could not have been more professional yet empathetic when dealing with my father's funeral. It was a complicated situation and they explained what was needed tactfully and using their experience of similar situations. Julie kept me fully informed about the arrangements and where everything had got to which was a real peace of mind. On the day, the funeral director and team were really kind, making sure those following in their own cars were included in the procession and set my mind at rest about aspects of the service. It made a difference knowing there was someone I could ask questions who would know the answers and be able to properly advise me.

Rating 5.0
I was really pleased with the service provided. It took a weight off my mind having everything arranged for me and it all went smoothly.

The directors were very understanding, patient and thoughtful in carrying out their duties, putting me in touch with a civil celebrant who composed and delivered a compassionate service.

Everyone I contacted, whether by phone, email or in-person, was helpful, considerate and respectful, in other words, very professional.

I was glad to have chosen Francis Chapel and sons and wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone recently bereaved.
