    I can’t speak highly enough of the service we received from J Rymer’s on the occasion of my Mother’s death.
    They handled everything in a very caring and professional manner. Nothing was too much trouble which made a sad time a lot less stressful than it would otherwise have been.
    Special thanks go to Martin and Heather.
