Hurtons funeral Directors acted with professionalism, compassion and grace at my mums funeral on the 30th of September this year. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wishing for a funeral for a loved one, they ensured that everything ran smoothly and nothing was too much trouble for them. They got every little detail correct and made me feel confident in the process on the day.
Response from E Hurton & Son Funeral Directors
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. It is incredibly helpful to other families in the same circumstances as yourself. We are very proud of our team and the care they give and it means the world when we hear from the families that we have looked after. Your kind words mean a great deal to the team who always work very hard to deliver great care.

Hurtons have always been our families 'Go To' funeral directors. These times are always terribly sad and difficult for the immediate family, and the recent loss of my beloved father was possibly the hardest of all for me personally.
Initially, I was slightly reticent about contacting them on this occasion as E Hurtons are now part of a far larger entity, Dignity Funerals, and I felt the former personal touch may no longer be there.
These doubts were totally unfounded - the whole experience was as stress free and caring as it could have been under the circumstances
On the evening that my father passed away, two relatively young gentlemen came and took my father into their care. Their compassion, thoughtfulness and empathy at was at that time the worst moment in my life was beyond amazing.The two men could not have been kinder or shown any greater respect; one of them was called Tom, sadly I did not get the other ones name - but truly remarkable young men
There after the team guided us through the whole process, including finding us a vicar who was a 'match' for our preferences - our parish is currently without its own vicar - and Mark C was just the man.
The direction from the pall bearers and the funeral director, whom we have known for many years,was everything, my wonderful father would have wished for.
Thank you on behalf of all of our family for being there for us

The whole process was made effortless from start to finish. From our first meeting with Julia who explained all the details & the options to us thoroughly to the very smooth running of the sad day of the cremation itself. We have to say that Steve & his colleagues couldn’t have made the day any more perfect. The whole service was personal & private, exactly how dad wanted it. Thankyou to you all.

From the initial contact I found Hurton's to be very helpful and caring. They made the whole process simple and straightforward at what is a very emotional time. The funeral itself was carried out with the greatest of professionalism, and respect to us and the deceased, to which we are hugely thankful.

I would just like to thank Julia and all of the staff at Hurton's for all the help, understanding and support we received during the preparation of Mum's funeral service and on the day of the service. It was a very difficult time for all the family made more so due to the current restrictions in place (COVID19) but with your help it was made easier to deal with.

Thank you from all the family

During this particularly sad time I felt empathy and helpful advice whenever it was needed. Special thanks to Julia and Olivia. I thought that Hurtons went above and beyond during the whole period and especially on the day of my sister’s funeral service. They even supplied an extra limousine due to there being more flowers/wreaths than expected.

When you lose a loved one, it is heart breaking. In such difficult times as these with forever changing rules and guidance, it is incredibly difficult to steer a way through everything you need to do. All the staff at E. Hurton & Son provided excellent support, with their personal touch at every step to ensure nothing, even the slightest detail was overlooked. Their professionalism, contact and kindness throughout the process was impeccable. From the arrangements for the burial, the service in the church and the journey to mums final resting place everything was covered, organised and checked. Mums final day was just as she would have wanted and perfect in every way. We will be forever grateful.
