At all times we were treated with compassion and kindness. Everything including costs was explained simply and with no pressure to exceed budgets. Once we had decided on what funeral arrangements we wanted then all arrangements were taken care of with no worry to ourselves. We were called regularly to check that we as people were coping ok with the situation and always asked if we needed help with anything and after the funeral were called to make sure we were ok. This caring attitude made all the difference to what was a very sad and emotional time.

From the arranging of the service, to booking the celebrant.It was organised efficiently .Which is what you want, when your dealing with a loved ones death. Extras like the flowers and order of service could not be faulted. Everybody complimented on what a fitting service it was for my mother. It just makes what is a sad day go that little bit easier. Thanks Martin & Staff.

The service provided by all the staff at B Bernard & sons was literally second 2 none, nothing we asked was to much trouble, nor was it a problem when we changed our mind from one thing to another. They were so understanding with us all knowing how much we were grieving. I could not have chosen a more caring funeral director to take care of my dad, we all will always be eternally grateful for everything they did for us.

From the very first phone call to picking up the ashes nick and Emma spoke softly and with compassion, the service was a double cremation and it couldn't have gone any smoother Julie did a fantastic job of arranging the music and eulogies and I got a lot of feedback from friends and family that had gone to show their respect.

Everybody involved in mums care after death treated her and my family with the upmost care and compassion. Mum needed to go for post moterm and I was kept up to date with what was happening throughout her journey. The funeral directors even rang me on the friday to reassure me mum would be cared for over the weekend. Mum wanted a small intermite funeral and you helped us achieve this. Mum would of been proud. Thankyou

The service was seamless right from the start. All communication by e-mail, phone and in person was polite , caring and understanding. All promises were kept and deadlines met. Additional services offered outside of my father's pre-paid contract were carefully explained to help me make an informed choice.
