    All the staff at Rymers were lovely but our Funeral Director, Rich Jackson was absolutely amazing. He ensured that me and my family were treated with compassion and respect and we were fully supported at all stages of proceedings. A fantastic, high quality service and I cannot thank Rich enough.

    I found the Rymer funeral director service very efficient, respectful and caring. Everything was provided as requested in a timely manner and they were very patient when I wanted to change the wording and photo presentation on the order of service. I would recommend them.

    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.
