I was very happy with the services I received. Two funeral services were used as my aunt had to be moved from Chester to Downham Market. J C Clarke in Chester and Downhm Funeral Services in Downham Market were wonderful in the way they dealt with every aspect. Logistically it was complex but I was always kept informed every step of the way. Such professional, courteous staff always. Very respectful and this was so appreciated. A very difficult time made so much easier with the care shown.

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.
