Reviews of Alfred English & Sons Funeral Directors
The lady in the top hat(Denise) was also very kind and helpful.
We used this Funeral Parlour many years ago for my Dad and aunt and everything has always gone very smoothly. Thank you to all the staff involved.
I will have no hesitation in recommending your service to friends and family - Aigbehinmua.
Nothing is too much trouble, everything done for you, always there even if you just need to chat.
There are no words that do justice to how I feel about this amazing group of people.
Trust your loved one's care to Alfred English, they care, really care.
Thank you all so very very much.
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.
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.
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
