We have used Phillips 5 times in the past 20 years and have always received impeccable service in every way. Recently they have helped make such a difficult and emotional journey manageable. It’s not just the funeral arrangements that they are amazing at but they excel with aftercare and compassion, going more than the extra mile. As a family we can’t thank all the staff enough for everything they have done for us and the care and compassion shown.

From my first contact with Andrew by phone and then meeting him he was calm and reassuring and made us feel relaxed whilst we were dealing with our loss. He was a great help with the choices we had to make. He was in constant contact with me making sure we were ok and that everything was to our satisfaction. The funeral was conducted beautifully by Andrew who was recommended by Andrew at Phillips. I’d like to thank you at Phillips for all your considerate help

From start to finish and beyond the funeral arrangements were handled with care and consideration to both myself and the deceased, and there was very good contact with me leading up to the day of the funeral, the little exras given to me after the funeral in a gift bag were a very nice gesture and we're appreciated and so we're the follow up calls afterwards, after another funeral by a well known company, l would recommend HJ Phillips & Son without hesitation and l can't think of anything they could do to improve on the service they provide as it is perfect and very well thought out.
All I can add is " Thank you ".
