Cannot fault the service provided at what has been a very difficult period.
Michele was very efficient, kind and thoughtful with everything from start to finish and all went smoothly on the day.
The memory box and framed photo that I received at the end of the service were a wonderful surprise that brought a lump to my throat… I would highly recommend Gordon Barber, as they made a very hard time as painless and stress free as possible.
Response from Gordon Barber Funeral Directors

The second time we have had to use a funeral directors in a year and we were so pleased with the professional service Gordon Barbers provided the first time we had no hesitation in wanting to use them again and the family were happy to go with my recommendation. Always professional, caring, supportive, friendly and efficient. You never felt under pressure to make quick decisions and had absolute trust that everything would go well on the day of the funeral - which it did. I hope it will be a while before i need their services again, but if the situation arises I would always chose Gordon Barbers.

I and my family were most impressed with the funeral arrangements. We could not have wished for anything better. It was a lovely calm ride to S.Faiths which helped me to come to terms with what was happening.

My beloved husband Gordon would have been pleased with the service. It was taken with dignity and pride and enabled our Grandchildren and friend to say their heart warming piece. We were all very proud of them. The Civil Celebrant, Colin, made it so comfortable for them and put them at their ease. I thank him sincerely.

Ursula, naming no names, was absolutely brilliant, in how she was so kind and caring and looked after people, It was very much appreciated and will be in my thoughts forever.

Thank you Gordon Barber you did us proud.

It is very sad when you loses the one you love. I am very pleased that the service went very and for attendance at the crematorium was given with high respect and dignity. The funeral directors were perfect and it helped one to get over the sadness.

The Father James sermon was perfect, bring back memories from the past and to help others and myself to get over our lost love soul.
