I was pleased with the service supplied by Harvey’s. A basic funeral plan was already in place and then there were a few additional costs and these were made clear at the first, main meeting. Following the meeting we left with a guide specifying our decisions, what we needed to decide, additional costs identified and contact names and numbers. It was helpful that Harvey’s offered and contacted a person to take the service. Carol, Harvey’s representative, contacted and visited us just before the funeral and we went over all the details regarding the practical details of the service; including collection, flowers, seating, entering and leaving the service. She did an excellent and professional job and it meant the day went well.

We found all the staff very kind and considerate, when planing the funeral of our mother Ian was very good at listening to what our mother wanted and made all the arrangements with a very efficient ad professional manner. Carol made contact before the funeral day to get to know us. On the actual day Carol guided the funeral and looked after my brothers and sisters very well no added stress on a difficult day.
All i all a great company to deal with no complaints what so ever.

I couldn't have asked for better, Ian was a legend, he ensured everything went smoothly from start to finish. I cannot recommend highly enough, not many people get my families sense of humour even at sad times as these but he got it straight away and helped us all through this hard time,

I found the help and guidance I received from the staff at Harvey's when arranging the funeral of my close friend to be second to none.

After the first meeting at the home, they were always there on the other end of the phone if I had more questions still to ask.


On the day of the funeral I found them to be very caring.


Would recommend Harvey's to people in the future.

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
