The care and compassion we received from your staff was wonderful. From the moment you took Mum into your care through all the days she was with you until her funeral we had the help and respect we needed. As Mum had lived at St.Saviours Care Home we were able to walk with her to Church which was a lovely thing for us to do. All of Mum's family are very appreciative of the care from your staff - no names needed as they know who they are. Thank you.

I was very impressed with the quiet, thoughtful, caring way my sister and I were dealt with following our father's death. He had already taken out a funeral plan so most of the "big" decisions had been made, but we were sympathetically guided through what we needed to do. I could not fault the service we were given.

At a very sad time, our main contact and the Hurton Team really looked after us as a family.
Especially finding us the right celebrant at such short notice, to conduct the service at the Babworth Crematorium.
Everything from the support and advice we needed, we got it.

Thank you

We were satisfied with the funeral arrangements. The staff were very helpful throughout. The only downside was the cost which was extremely high for the services we received - almost £5000 - we did not even use any funeral cars for the funeral - just the hearse. I understand that funeral costs overall are being looked into by the government and in future there may be a ‘correction’ in this respect which will not be before time.

My family have used E Hurton & Son several times now in recent years for the funerals of several family members and on each occasion we have received excellent service from them. A personal service from start to finish. The staff are extremely helpful and help to make the whole process of planning the funeral much easier. The latest funeral they arranged for my family was only a few weeks ago in March. The member of staff at the premises guided me through the options for the Cremation venue, flowers, Press announcement etc. he was helpful but was not at all pushy. The fact they were able to arrange these things on my initial visit took a lot of pressure from me. I left confident that they would carry out my wishes for the funeral which they did. It all went very smoothly on the day. I could not recommend them highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff which really helped me through what was a very difficult time. Thank You.

Alison kept us continually informed of each aspect of my mothers funeral and responded quickly and efficiently to any queries and requests. Nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble and the icing on the cake was seeing Mr John Hurton.
