I found the staff to be sympathetic and very helpful. Aletia, who was my contact with the firm was compassionate and very efficient. Everything was dealt with at my pace and they did not once say, "We cannot do that." When Aletia was not available, the central call centre picked up the call and it was dealt in the same gentle manner. The day of the service went well, thanks to the Funeral director, the celebrant and the staff at the Crematorium. All my wife's friends commented on the service. Thank youto everyone involved
