    We were treated with exceptional sympathy and excellent care throughout our visit to John Wards. Dave went through the funeral arrangements on our first visit with us, putting us at ease and was so helpful. On second visit Julie took photo's we needed adding to service leaflets and checked everything was as we wanted.
    They were very helpful and kept us informed every step of the way. Would recommend them to everyone needing help to arrange a funeral. Thank you very much.

    As in most cases this is the first dealings with Undertakers.
    I was very impressed with how they handled both my daughters and myself. Being a very trying time they showed great compassion and made us deal with the arrangements without difficulty. They kept in constant contact to ensure we were satisfied.
    The Cremation service was professionally carried out we could not have been more pleased. Many of the congregation applauded how smooth it was done.
    I have completed a Funeral Plan for myself thanks to John Ward.

    We have sadly had the deaths of both my parents in January, and I can honestly say that the service, compassion and support we received was perfect, just what my family and I needed at a truly difficult time.
    Special thanks to Julie and David who have continued to be there for me. I would highly recommend!

    I have had wonderful service from the team in Daventry, special mention to Julie and David. I lost both my parents in 17 days, and they are so supportive and professional.
