As a family we have used Alfred English for 60+ years.
My recent experience was made easy as the funeral planner guided me through the procedure.
On the day of the funeral everything went as planned due to the professionalism of the staff.
Many thanks to all involved.

From our very first contact with Alfred English, the service was excellent. They provided clear and sympathetic advice, covering a range of options then, once we had decided on a plan, they arranged everything. The funeral service itself, was handled in a similar professional fashion.

All our encounters with all of the staff were of the same high standard. We are really grateful for the help and service provided and could not recommend them more highly.

I had all the information for the death of my husband and to organise the best funeral for him, the planning was first class and my husband was treated with dignity and respect. As for myself being so upset was happy to receive the best, especially not knowing anything, being left with the responsibility and also having a family commitment at home as well.

We had our flowers ordered and wake from the pack given all which was used. All I can say in my grief at this moment that I am grateful I chose Alfred English and Sons to be my funeral director for my beloved husband
