    The service from beginning to end was exemplary. From being able to say when we wanted the service, to all the details carried out just as we wanted. Ian in particular was excellent, very professional and kind.

    We would give Harveys 5 stars
    We were shown to a very quite and peaceful room and given all the information but were in no way rushed or hurried. All our questions were answered and the member of staff was very helpful when we were not too sure about anything. We were very happy with the way everything was dealt with and especially on the day of the funeral it all went very well we couldn't have asked for more. I would have no hesitation in recommending Harveys to anyone. Thank You

    Ian and the staff at Harvey’s could not have been kinder. They listened to all our thoughts when planning my Father’s funeral. They offered suggestion on things that we were not sure of, but were never pushy. They were respectful and professional but never officious and they were always friendly and personable. The whole day was dignified but with an emphasis on celebrating a long life, rather than being mournful. All just as my Father would have wished.
