    From the start Emma at the Downham Market branch was excellent and made this difficult time for us easy to understand and organise. The visit by Shane who conducted mums funeral was very pleasant and professional and gave us sound reassurance mums funeral would run without hitch and it was.
    I would recommend DFS to anyone and not sounding morbid I have the paperwork at home to pre pay for my funeral using dignity.

    Shane and the Downham Co-op Funeral service team could not have been more caring and attentive. Frankly, the experience was handled as delicately and responsibly as one could wish for under the inevitably sad circumstances.

    Our grateful thanks.
