Gordon Barber provided a complete, thorough and compassionate service throughout. Their staff were always available, courteous and understanding and were able to accommodate all our requests. The funeral service was exactly as we had wished it to be and we cannot rate their services highly enough.

Rating 5.0
As this was a prepaid funeral I had no choice of funeral directors but they were absolutely wonderful. Aletia was extremely helpful and accommodating and considering everything had to be organised over the phone it was perfect. The webcast worked brilliantly for those who couldn't be there. I was able to give my friend the best send off and lay her to rest.
Response from Gordon Barber Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. I am happy that the pre-paid funeral plan made it easier to arrange the service for your Friend.

Rating 5.0
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
