I cannot reccomend Bernard & Sons funeral directors highly enough. They were totally efficient and respectful throughout the entire process, from when I contacted them to come to move my husband from our home, to the moment I collected his ashes after the funeral.

Ann who helped us organise the funeral was very kind and extremely helpful in sorting out our wishes and carrying them out. Very knowledgeable and gave us suggestions we might wish to consider.

The day of the funeral was just as we wanted and everything went very smoothly. Not one complaint.

As a company everyone was polite, kind, helpful and considerate to our feelings.

At a very difficult time as this was we could not have been looked after any better

Having dealt with B Bernard on several occasion over the past 20 years or more, it was a great relief to get wonderful help and support and of course service from Ann Kitto and her team. Their professionalism and care was clearly evident throughout our experience and made a difficult situation much easier to cope with. We certainly would recommend their services to one and all.

From the first moment me and my brother walked in to Bernard's they were polite and very kind and understanding about our mother passing away. Anna who looked after us explains everything clearly and looked after us in a very professional but also a warm and caring way. I could not find fault with anything that's why they get 5 stars.

I can't give enough praise to Ann and her team at Bernards in Scarborough. She kept me informed of ongoing progress at every stage, answered any questions I had and gave such a professional service. She also had such a kind and caring manner when explaining the options. The presentation of the order of service was beautiful, as were the flowers. On the day of the funeral, everything was well organised and ran smoothly. I couldn't have asked for more. I would highly recommend Bernards.
