Very helpful and friendly, the funeral went without any hiccups and the speaker did a good job. Not much else to say really. Funerals are expensive no matter where you go, this basic one cost us 3 grand...I can get a 28 ton 58 foot narrowboat taken by road to Manchester and back for less, but it is what it is. All in all good service and no complaints.

Lizzy was fantastic

I know it's their job to be caring and kind but I really felt comfortable with all Staff at Thompson's each step of the way which lowered the anxiety levels at a sad and difficult time.

I was so pleased with everything - flowers, being able to drive past Mum's home, memory cards - all lovely.

Dave, believe me, I don't make a habit of taking pictures at funerals - it just sort of evolved and was our moment of levity.
