I have no hesitation in awarding 5 stars to this Funeral Director. The price was competitive and the service excellent. Chris, who handled things for us in Earlestown was at a times supportive and sensitive to our feelings at this very distressful time.

Rating 4.0
I thought the service we received from you was very professional and dignified. The only comment I would make was that I got the impression you were so busy that a couple of small details were overlooked and I had to do these myself, these being my Eulogy wasn’t given to the Chaplain and nobody rang us about the Order of Service. Otherwise a first class service.
Response from Merrony & Kynaston Funeral Directors
