Our family have been impressed and so grateful for the professional, caring and compassionate service we received from Hannah and Wendy. From the outset, they proved to be sensitive, efficient and totally at the disposal of the family during such a difficult time. When there is a death in the family, it obviously causes much grief and sadly friction regards the arrangements. This was the case with my family and there was much tension around my father's funeral. I cannot express my thanks and huge appreciation for the way in which both Hannah and Wendy were able to diffuse potentially explosive situations and enable the funeral to take place with dignity and the minimum of upset for the whole family. I would recommend Bells to anyone facing the difficult situation regarding the death of a loved one. Thank you so much!

Rating 5.0
We were very pleased with the arrangements made and the one to one care received. Having a choice of coffin, gown and "grooming" for an unattended cremation wasn't something we thought could be offered, but these little touches showed the care and attention for our loved one at the saddest time. This gave us some comfort that our loved one was looked after personally. Our family have decided that this is the type of care and attention they would like for their funeral plans too and will be contacting J W Bell Funeral Directors for future funeral plans. Thank you

Myself and my family cannot thank Hannah and the team enough for their understanding and comfort throughout this very difficult and emotional time. Their compassion and guidance was so thoughtful and respectful. From the moment our beloved Nan was with them till the moment she was laid to rest, they ensured our wishes were met, with suggestions and recommendations that we would never have thought of to make the service even more special. Highly recommended.
Response from J. W. Bell Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. It has been an honour to look after you and your loved one and to respond sensitively to your specific needs. We know how special each person is and aim to convey this in all aspects of our work from the arrangements to the day of the service.

From start to finish they lived up to their name. We were treated with respect and care and were listened to in what we required as a family. Communication was very clear and continuous and they were very patient with us as we sorted out what we needed to do, as we took the funeral ourselves. I cannot speak highly enough of them because as a Pastor I have many dealings with Funeral Directors and we have used Dignity JW Bell for both my parents funerals and they have been outstanding. Highly recommended!

For such an awful process to be having to go through I can hand on my heart say this process was made so much easier by cath and Wendy who absolutely go over and above their jobs to make both my mum and and my dad's day so special. I can never repay what they have done for us as a family in this heartbreaking situation. Thank you so much live su williams

Wendy was very kind, helpful and supportive throughout the process. Hannah was obviously new, but kind & helpful. Cath was amazing on the day of the funeral especially. She was so caring and supportive of my family, and so very respectful of my husband's remains. The dignity was above and beyond.

We were very impressed with the service we received from J W Bell. From the organisation right through to the funeral itself everything went very smoothly. The initial consultation with Wendy was very professional and nothing was too much trouble. We were very well looked after on the day of the funeral and the flowers and Order of Service booklet were beautiful. About a week later Wendy even delivered mum's ashes to me on her way home. Many thanks to all concerned.

The service from J W Bell was caring, considerate and very professional. Our mum had planned her celebration in detail but it was put into place perfectly by J W Bell and mum got the send of she wanted and would have been proud of. Wendy & Cath were excellent in organising it and bringing it all together on the day. The celebrant, Jane Grimes, did a wonderful job of delivering the service and whilst we were sad to say goodbye to our mum, the family were delighted that her farewell was everything she wanted it to be.

i Have used services of Bells Funeral Home previously for three members of my family, the occasion of my fathers death in October 2019, I had no hesitation in using their services again.
Cath and Wendy go above and beyond to support with every step of arranging a funeral.
I felt like they were two really good friends who were totally supportive, kept us fully up to date with arrangements and allowed us time to take in the information and allowed us to have the funeral that we wanted for dad. They showed empathy and compassion to ourselves, but more importantly, they showed respect and dignity to my dad, they would talk to him as if he was a member of their own family which I found extremely comforting at such a very sad time.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the services of Bells Funeral Home and the support offered from Cath and Wendy.
I cannot speak highly enough of them all.
Thank you to them both, and to Dignity Funerals for an exceptional service from you all, you made our loss so much more bearable with your help and support
