From our initial contact, my sister and myself felt supported in what was a difficult time, no matter that we had felt prepared for the inevitable. Ann was our contact and she was reassuring, both in her tone and professionalism.
We wanted a Celebrant to lead the funeral service and Ann suggested the perfect candidate for us to pay a fitting tribute to our dear mum.
In short, by the time of the funeral itself, we felt in safe hands and have no hesitation in recommending Ken Gregory and Sons.

So glad we decided to go ahead with Ken Gregory for our fathers funeral. They were brilliant from start to finish. From the 1st phone call they made us so comfortable, were empathetic, respectful and helpful throughout. Everything was explained clearly at every step of the way. Ann was excellent and so was Matthew. They took our cultural differences into utmost consideration and obliged to our every need for the day. Prices were reasonable but for the service received we would have happily paid more.

First class service from the staff, everything went just as planned. Nothing was too much trouble when making the arrangements and the staff on the day were very professional. They went over and above our expectations with assistance in sorting out the ashes for internment of not only our father who's funeral they handled for us but also of our sisters ashes who's death preceded our father but is to be interned with him.

We have used this Funeral Director for 4 generations, so when my husband passed away I had no need to be searching elsewhere.....I knew that he would be in the safest of hands, and I would receive the care, compassion and understanding that was needed to get through that most difficult time, which with all the staff I dealt with....they exceeded this being highly caring and extremely professional at every stage.
Everything on the day went just perfect.

We can't praise the company highly enough! As all dealings had to be by phone during this pandemic rather than face to face, we were a little concerned about everything coming together on the day. However, we need not have worried. The communication from everyone was amazing, they kept us very well informed throughout the whole process and were very patient with us when we wanted to take time to make important decisions. On the day they were all very kind, courteous, patient, understanding and professional in every aspect. Thank you very much to every one of them.
