    Everyone I had to speak to, from the initial phone call to the Dignity call centre to eventually being put in touch with Louise and Chris at Skipton directly, were friendly and caring and I felt like nothing was too much trouble for them.

    The whole process was quick and as easy as it could be a such a sad time and I felt thoroughly taken care of throughout the whole process from start, to the actual service and even afterwards.

    Many thanks to Louise and Chris at Skipton and the others I have spoken to at Dignity- by name and by nature most definitely!
