    A first class service throughout,. The understanding, empathy, information, and on occasions, the appropriate reaction to and understanding of, moments of humour were perfect at such a stressful time trying to organise the funeral Dad and the family wanted to send him on his way.
    Many many thanks.

    Our family used the services of Bernard & Sons, Scarborough in March 2019 for our brothers funeral. We found all of the staff to be caring, considerate and very supportive. We could not have asked for a better service. Everything was organised professionally and efficiently and the staff were extremely respectful. They helped us to give our brother a good send off.

    My Husband passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in mid December 2018. We both have pre-paid Funeral Plans with Dignity and right from the initial contact all staff were helpful, caring, professional and understanding. My Husband passed away in Hospital in Derby and with the Bank Holidays and weekends at Christmas, arrangements were difficult to make. Paperwork had to be made and cleared to allow him to be brought back to Scarborough, which in itself was very distressing. Paul promised me that no matter what, my Husband would be home for Christmas - and so he was. I viewed him in the Chapel of Rest and he looked so wonderful I was immediately calmed. The Funeral Service was handled professionally and respectfully. Our wishes were carried out in a very caring and supportive manner. This is the third family funeral that Paul has done for me/us and I cannot thank him enough for his care and attention to me as well as my Husband. He is now a friend.

    Bernard and Sons were recommended to us by the manager of the nursing home where my father had lived. From initial contact through to the handling of the funeral service and beyond, they were extremely supportive and sensitive; they carried out our requests to our complete satisfaction. To all the staff at Bernard and Sons with whom we had dealings: thank you very much for your guidance and support at this difficult and upsetting time.

    We received a very professional service with a kind personal touch.
    Emma was my first point of contact, so reassuring at this very difficult and vulnerable time.
    Ann made all the arrangements and directed Mum`s funeral in the most kind and professional manner, exactly the way we wished and also suggested some nice improvements.
    Thank you so much Ann, Emma and all the staff at B Bernard for looking after Mum so well.
    Best wishes
