    I would like to say a huge thank you to the team for the caring and professional way you helped us organise my Nans funeral. It was so important to get it right because it would have been her 100th birthday on the day and from the very first contact with you to the end of the funeral day, it went exactly as we had hoped. We would like to thank everyone involved with looking after Nan in the time she was in your care. You should all feel so proud of the service you provide as everything happened the way we wanted. Thank you for all your help and support.

    This is the second time l have used J Rymer Funeral Directors and both times the service l received was excellent. Mr Rymer was meticulous in his attention to detail at the consultation, making sure it was what l wanted gently giving me the choices and explaining the procedure. After which he kept me updated on the progress of all the arrangements by email.
    On the day everything was perfect, his staff were friendly and very dignified. Nothing too much trouble.
    I would certainly recommend this company they have been in business for many years and are very efficient and caring.
    Thank you.

    My brother and I were both extremely satisfied with the level of service provided by J. Rymers at the funeral of our mother. The whole occasion went off perfectly, and if my mother could have seen it, she would have been very pleased.
