Francis Chappell provided an excellent service from start to finish. I mainly dealt with Jackie who seemed to be available 7 days a week. This was during their incredibly busy period in January/February when Covid was taking it's toll. As I live hundreds of miles away from where my deceased family member lived, I had to conduct all business over the phone and by email. Despite this Jackie provided an outstanding personal service, if she wasn't available she always rang/replied promptly and didn't fail to answer my questions. She made the whole process very easy and held my hand every step of the way. On the day of the Service, the pallbearers etc provided a personal, excellent service. I can't fault the experience despite being a sad event.
Thank you to all at Francis Chappell, Woolwich.

The funeral itself exceeded every expectation but what I took away most was the sympathetic and efficient approach provided by Jackie in what is clearly sad times. I never once felt pressurised or burdened whilst agreeing the arrangements and this allowed me and my family to mourn without any background stress - a professional service.
