Our experience with J.H Kenyon Westminster, after losing my father, was seamless. It made the whole process easier knowing that we were in safe and trusted hands. Antonio was kind, empathetic, compassionate, patient and professional - all the qualities that we needed, and he made us feel at ease and supported throughout. Thank you very much for everything, we will always be grateful. Our best wishes, Carole and Mary.

Kenyons Rochester Row were marvellous. Antonio was so helpful and understanding and made life easy at a difficult time. Pravin, the Funeral Director, was professional and dignified. Mark Hayford, the humanist, was first class. The funeral could not have gone better. Thank you.

I was shown such care and compassion when I lost my son that when my father died that was the first place I thought off. His funeral went like clockwork, everything was done with dignity and care. If I need them again, Kenyon will always be my first choice. At the end of the funeral, Kenyons gave me a lovely floral tribute to take home, that was a nice touch at the end. Many thanks, Kenyon.

Throughout the funeral process , JH Kenyons were both highly professional and efficient. The initial planning interview with Antonio allowed time for choosing options carefully, answering queries and taking notes so all was very clear. Further contact and queries via email were always answered promptly . The funeral itself went very smoothly and calmly . I would recommend this company

Everything was handled very sensitively. The timing was quite tight (in my view) but nevertheless all the arrangements went very well. The Funeral Service Arranger guided us clearly through the process and made things go smoothly on the day.

My partner had arranged his funeral details via a policy with Age Uk. I would advise everyone to consider such a policy, as it takes all the stress and anxiety of arranging a funeral away at a difficult time. He was able in times of good health, to decide on the form of funeral he wanted, whether internment or cremation, even down to the type of coffin required, all this was done for a set cost paid in advance, so when he died, recently, some years later from buying the policy, there was nothing more to pay. I simply had to make one phone call and everything swung into action. J H Kenyon was the Funeral Director linked to this policy and they took over all the arrangements on receipt of that phone call. The body was removed from home and taken to the funeral home and kept until the funeral. One meeting in J H Kenyon's Victoria office was all that was needed to arrange all the details, from confirming the coffin, arranging the date for, in our case, the crematorium, the attendance of a clergyman, and even the music. I was kept informed of all the arrangements and details re timing etc and on the day, the service was efficient, respectful and dignified. It was a very smooth, trouble, stress free ending to a difficult time and I can only highly recommend my experience at J H Kenyon Funeral Directors.
