The process from start to finish was handled in a most professional way, all with a caring and sympathetic manner. The funeral day itself was made stress free due to the prior organisation and the calm prompts from the funeral director. Thank you Gornalls.

Tina was really helpful. Organised everything, took the stress away of getting things sorted.
The service was great, really smooth, well run, and Tony, the guy who conducted the service was fantastic.
the Hearse was spotless, and the guys driving were really helpful too.

Thanks,

Rating 5.0
From the start of arranging all the funeral needs of my late relative we were treated with respect and kept up to date with the whole process. Tina went up and above her commitments and worked out of her own working day to fit in with us. This was so reassuring to know we only needed to make arrangements to go to the branch and Tina was more than willing to fit around our day. Would highly recommend the service we were given, thank you .
Response from Gornalls Funeral Directors
