Gordon Barber Eaton branch went above and beyond what I ever would have expected of a funeral director. They managed to arrange a funeral at very short notice due to other family commitments and passed through various challenges to ensure that my father’s funeral went ahead exactly as we wanted. They arranged everything on our behalf and their personal care and empathy was obvious from the moment I first phoned, through to the funeral and continued on afterwards to ensure that all the family were ok. Even though a funeral is such a tragic time with so many things to sort out, Gordon Barber were there to make things bearable. They provided a truly excellent service throughout the whole process.

I would thoroughly recommend Gordon Barber and would not think twice about using them again.

We chose Gordon Barber to handle the necessary arrangements for my dear Wife, Eileen, not just because they are the closest funeral directors to our home, but also because our neighbour had recently used their services and was very complimentary about all aspects.
We cannot thank Tim and Celia enough for their professional, empathetic and efficient approach to everything we asked of them. They were extremely patient and considerate in dealing with our questions and concerns and made the very sad occasion of the service at the crematorium feel worry free and the event just a bit more bearable.
Thank you so much ...Bill and Liz M

Celia was my main point of contact with Gordon Barber, and from the start she made the experience as easy and problem-free as possible. No question she could not answer, nor task she could not carry out and all with a helpful and friendly manner.

I never felt any pressure to do [or spend] more, and on the day of the funeral was impressed by the respect and consideration shown by all your staff. The kindness behind the surprise gift of an enlarged print of a favourite photograph brought me great comfort - further evidence of an excellent service. Thank you.

From the moment of booking an appointment to the culmination of the sad ceremony and beyond, I felt looked after, cared for, and helped through the very worst day of my life. It was special; it felt personal. I have nothing but praise for all involved in bringing this time of loss to a gentle conclusion, and the aftercare also means a lot, as the care feels with me still.
Thankyou Gordon Barber, most sincerely.

Really professional care from start to finish - dealing with a family still coming to terms with the loss of a loved one, but in such a professional caring way.

The suggestions they provided, which fitted in with our thoughts were really helpful, given no detail had been worked out previously.
