    At a very stressful and sad time at loosing my mother, the staff at Alex Taylor were exceptional, so caring and supportive, everything my mother requested they arranged. Michelle and Lisa would always welcome you with a smile and a cuppa. Michelle made mum look beautiful for the Chapel of Rest, mum looked elegant and not overdone with makeup, thank you Michelle, I would recommend any one of the Funeral Plans they offer, Mum paid for hers on a monthly basis, she always thought ahead and did not want to leave us/her children with the worry of finding funds to bury her.

    A big thank you, especially to Michelle, Lisa and Dave who arranged the cars. You all contributed to a wonderful day of celebrating our mum life, you took away a big chunk of the stress and worry and well will be forever grateful.
