FJ Gibbs in Southport were absolutely fantastic. Its been a very tough year as I lost my both my mum and my dad within an 8 month period. I used Gibbs firstly for my mum. They were great. It was a no brainer when I had to make a decision on who to use for my dad. Very professional and reliable. I want to say a special thank you to Jodie from the Southport branch. She has been instrumental in the organisation for both funerals. She is very professional and always compassionate and supportive.I would be grateful if her supervisor would commend her and pass on our thanks and regards. Thank you all for your support during this tough time. Richard
Response from F. J. Gibb Funeral Directors

Excellent service provided by F J Gibb and the staff. Treated with respect and answered all questions succinctly and clearly. Overall would definitely recommend FJ Gibb without hesitation and their costs were just as competitive and in some cases better than many cheaper versions currently advertised on television!
Thank you to all staff.

From the moment we contacted F. J. Gibbs they were extremely supportive, patient and helpful. They were called out at approximately 4am to remove my Father from his home and were so considerate, even to offering to tidy up before they left me. When the family had been delayed in traffic on the way to the funeral and were going to be late, Gary was very calm and reassuring. The whole funeral and burial was conducted with the utmost dignity and respect and the family felt it had been a beautiful day. My thanks to all involved.
Response from F. J. Gibb Funeral Directors
It means a great deal when people take the time to share their experience and to highlight individuals in the team who have made a difference. Your family continues to be in our thoughts and we are honoured to have been able to give you the service you needed.

We were extremely happy with the services provided by FJ Gibb when they looked after my Dad’s funeral. Since we live in London having the professional help of a local family run team to guide us through the arrangements made an already stressful time much, much easier. Rolf and Jodie were kind, thoughtful and able to offer excellent advice. This was especially important for someone who has never had to plan a funeral before and I found it invaluable.
The funeral was exactly what we and my Dad would have wanted; dignified and joyous. Thank you.

The kindness and patience shown to me and my sons was very welcome at a difficult time. Making decisions was made easier by Gary who was with us from the beginning guiding us to the right answers.
I and my family were always made to feel welcome when we went to visit our loved one many times, nothing was ever too much trouble.
On the day all the men were true gentleman and guided us effortless because of their professionalism.
Thank you for easing a horrible time for us and, myself and family would certainly recommend this

F J Gibb recently took care of the funeral arrangements for my aunty. They were very respectful, compassionate and everything was well explained and executed with no trouble what so ever. The day went exactly to plan and even the dreadful weather did not cause any drama. We had just the basic funeral package which was perfectly adequate for us and the price was very good. Everything we asked for was provided without any fuss including our music choices and celebrant who was very kind and helpful and did a lovely job. We were very happy with the service provided and would not hesitate to recommend F J Gibb.
