Thompsons Maghull Team helped us through the most upsetting times recently when my lovely Dad passed away. Matthew & Janet supported us, guided us and cared about us. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Sharon who was in charge on the day of the funeral was professional, caring and explained everything that would happen, making it so clear for all the family. The drivers were so polite and caring on the day. Thank you all. Lesley Brant and all of Les Boyd's Family.

Thank you to the excellent professional,warm and supportive staff at Thompson's.
Especially Matthew. It was so good to have continuity of care. He was there for our family for the first week after mum died. I couldn't have asked for better service and advice.
The day of the funeral was well planned and less stressful as we had had a lot of input into the service.
Thank you.

I can t thank Maghull Thompsons enough the help and support I received from Sharon Janet and Mathew . They helped me so much and nothing was too much trouble for them. I’ve arranged three funerals in nine months, people very dear and close to me. I found the last one for my sister ada Baxter very stressful .
Thompsons made the whole experience as nice as it could be. Patricia who did the service also went out of her way to be helpful and I can t thank her enough.
Thompsons rang me after the funeral to check I was alright. Things like this mean a lot
THANKYOU you all so much and take care.. RUTH HARWOOD.

The staff were always very polite and attentative. We saw Janet from the beginning and she helped us through the process and was always available by phone or if we called in person. We were touched that Sharon walked in front of the hearse along our street, something we weren't expecting but very respectful.

As I’ve said on the voice call I received from Dignity today, we as a family couldn’t have been anymore supported than we were by the staff at Maghull. Nora and Carol are a credit to the company, what more can I say. So kind and helpful, keeping us so updated with everything and always offering a service second to none. Sharon the funeral director was wonderful as well. So organised and professional, her approach to the job before her was conducted fantastically especially given there was so many people present. Organising her team like she does I hope you will pay her the gratitude I am sharing now. In all they all made everything so easy for us as a family throughout our sad journey, it was so much more Comfortable with their help. I can even add Victoria who called me from Dignity, she spoke so lovely. Thank you all. Joe Farrell Jnr
