    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
