Phillips was so caring and they listen to what I had to say the person that dealt with me David was very understanding and help me a lot and the little things telling me he spoke to my partner and when I went to see him he knocked the door to me that was the sign of respect and at the end of it all they gave me a keepsake which I will cherish and David said to me he was there if I needed someone to talk to.

Outstanding service from everyone involved with Phillips and Dignity.
The passing of both my parents in such a short space of time was really hard to deal with, but David the funeral arranger was incredible in how he looked after us, understanding the grief and heartache we were going through, nothing was to much trouble and so easy to deal with, we just asked and it was done.
The professional attitude, respect, care of my parents and presentation was really top notch something that I’m so grateful for.
On the day of the funerals everything was perfect, Spencer along with all his colleges showed the upmost respect and professionalism at all times, we can’t thank them enough.
I really do recommend this funeral directors so much, we’ve actually decided to make sure these people look after us on our departure, just not yet I hope.

I found all of the employee,s very curtious , respectful and helpful. They made a difficult time a lot easier with knowledge, care and understanding. I was able to do all the processes needed at my speed, I never felt rushed or stupid when I asked questions. The care offered by Phillips for myself and my family was second to none. They took care of my mother with the respect and dignity at all times. They were profesional yet very human. I am so thankful for the little touches they provided at a very difficult and upsetting time.

David has been excellent, respectful nature and conversation was very comforting, the service you provided over all was superb, took away the stress and worry and ensured everything was taken care of from the newspaper acknowledgement, flowers and arranging the non religious humanist for the service, nothing was to much trouble and communication on arranging the funeral again was excellent. My cousin was well looked after at Phillips and presented looking peaceful at the chapel. The day of the funeral went so well, Spencer our director on the day was so respectful as was the rest of our team. Myself and the family are very happy the service Phillips provide and have over the years been the family's preferred funeral directors.

Phillips of Corby provided us with a service that was excellent. We were guided every step of the way with thorough professionalism. All of the staff were aware of what was required and communicated this throughout. The courtesy and sensitivity were very reassuring.
They have every reason to be proud of their company.
