Terry and his team at Wroxham were brilliant. I can't thank Terry enough for all the support and help he gave us during a very painful period leading leading up to my husband's funeral. His support both before and after the funeral was exemplary.

Thank you for looking after us so well. Terry (Wroxham office)was both professional and caring throughout and exceeded our expectations in every respect. He gave us all the space and time we needed, both in making the arrangements and visiting the chapel of rest, and his support was very comforting and reassuring.

This was the second time I had used Gordon Barber, Hoveton in the space of a year. On both occasions I could not fault their service. Very kind, caring, great attention to detail and always at the end of the phone. They just took away all the worry of making the necessary arrangements for my loved ones. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gordon Barber to family and friends.

One hopes one doesn’t have to make that call but when the day arrived, thanks to Terry and all the staff at Gordon Barber, it was a relief to know that everything would be handled with respect and dignity. Terry was very helpful, patient and kind and all his suggestions were excellent. We are so pleased with the service and would highly recommend them. Finally, I feel that thanks to Terry and the staff at Gordon Barber FD, I gave my husband the best care and send off possible in these difficult COVID-19 times.
Response from Gordon Barber Funeral Directors
Thank you so much for this lovely review which means all the more at this very challenging time. The team are working very hard to ensure that each family receives outstanding care and I am so glad their dedication has given you the service you needed.
Rating 5.0
From the first moment we met with Terry, it was as if a huge weight had been lifted from us. This was our first experience at having to arrange a funeral, and as we had found ourselves in such a situation so unexpectedly as no parent wants to have to bury their children and that's where we found ourselves. The whole team at Gordon Barber were excellent all the way through, dealing with every aspect with great dignity and respect, allowing us to grieve whilst they lightened the load for us. We cannot speak highly enough of the service received and will definitely recommend Gordon Barber in the future. Thank you.

We have been very very happy with the excellent way all the staff at Gordon Barbers helped us arrange the funeral for our elderly friend when he died recently. From our initial phone call until the day the funeral took place they were on hand to answer any questions we had and guided us through the whole process professionally and sympathetically and helped to us to carry out the wishes of our dear friend. During such a difficult and sometimes confusing time, having a company like Gordon Barbers support has made such a difference. Thank you very much indeed.
