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.

Our family were delighted with the compassion, care and thoughtfulness that was shown to us at every stage of our contact with Gordon Barber. From my initial Meeting with Celia to begin discussing the arrangements right through to the Funeral and support in the subsequent days, I was treated with utmost respect and great patients was shown with my many queries. The Team were very supportive and accommodating as we discussed our plans and their advice was greatly appreciated. We too were cared for compassionately on the day of the funeral and were given time at every stage. Malcolm, who was exceptional, and his colleagues were compassionate and unobtrusive.

Overall We were extremely pleased with the service we were offered.
