From start to finish Irene was fantastic with the family. She was so approachable and sympathetic towards us. The funeral was lovely and the celebrant Matthew Shaw who Irene organised for us was fantastic and made the day so much easier for the family.

Yet again Alex Taylor's in Upton have made a difficult time as easy as it can be. The whole team is very supportive and helpful. They made sure the whole process went smoothly and as stress free as possible. My Aunt got the great send off she deserved.

The service we received from ‘Alex Taylor’s’ was first class from start to finish. They could not have been more helpful and understanding at such a sad time . They went beyond what we expected and were very professional in everything they did . It was a horrendous time for our family but they took a lot of the pressure off use to make it as easy as it could possibly be. We all thank you very much . I would highly recommend them.
Response from Alex Taylor Funeral Directors

From the initial telephone conversation to the issuing of the final paperwork, I have nothing but praise for all the staff.
The date of the funeral was a challenge as we only had two dates that all members of the family, coming from all corners of the UK, were available. The 1st option turned out to be the day that many road closures would effect Wirral due to the Tour of Britain Cycle Race. The Upton Office was able to appreciate the facts of the situation and explain that the funeral that day was simply not possible. The second option was hastily secured as Upton and Birkenhead staff collectively communicated with all parties confirmed.
At a time of high emotion and the need to deal practically and quickly with unfamiliar procedure I know that the stress was greatly reduced by all at Alex Taylor.
Response from Alex Taylor Funeral Directors
