All personnel with whom I had contact were approachable, efficient, professional and compassionate. I appreciated their patience and guidance as I had not had to organise a funeral previously. I was kept well informed of progress from the first phone call through to the internment of the ashes and always felt that support was there should I need it.
The personal, caring and professional approach of James and Ted was really valued and I am sure it would have been appreciated by my father too.

Thank you for your 5* review and lovely comments.
Rating 5.0
From my very first phone call to Mark Young (AGAR’s) notifying him of my mother’s death, through to his final phone calls to me after the funeral , his handling of everything has been exemplary. I am a supernumerary Methodist minister and I have had professional dealings with hundreds of funeral directors and that gives me perspective.
The COVID 19 pandemic has imposed additional difficulties on people in all walks of life. Mark’s professionalism and pastoral sensitivity is second to none and I can highly recommend AGAR’S Funeral Directors service.

The service we received was exceptional. Staff were, at all times, quiet, calm, respectful and understanding, especially James who looked after us magnificently. All our requests were fulfilled completely. On the day of the funeral, the staff were immaculately dressed and courteously conducted us through the proceedings. The hearse and funeral car were spotlessly clean. In short, everything was exactly as we had hoped for and precisely what my dear Dad had wanted. No complaints whatsoever.

The whole affair was handled extremely well, both during the build up and also on the day of the funeral. Geri, from E & A Agar, was both sympathetic and professional throughout and ensured that all of my Mother's wishes were adhered to.

I can only offer my thanks to everyone involved in making this sad occasion run so smoothly.
