I really cannot fault the service from Ken Gregory & Sons, our family have used them since before they were part of 'Dignity' and I am so glad that the high level of service we have always received in the past is still evident today. All the arrangements, mainly dealt with by Clare Hicks were absolutely perfect and the ceremony carried out on the day faultlessly. The only small quibble I have is that I requested a download of the webcast and as yet have not been able to obtain one. Clare told me that I should be able to download it directly from the website, but the website says that it must be organised through the funeral director (or crematorium), understandably so that nobody can download it without the family's permission. I would appreciate if this could be address with all haste, since the online link is due to expire very soon.

The professionalism of Ken Gregory & Sons during what was a very difficult time for us and dealing with many restrictions due to Covid. From the first initial contact with Joanne through too the order of the service with Matthew was second to non. Nothing was too much trouble. I was guided every step of the way by a very courteous team. Thank you to each and everyone of the team!

I have dealt with the Sutton-in-Ashfield branch over the last 4 years and have found them so caring and understanding to the difficult / heartbreaking situations we, as a family, have experienced.
This starts from the first telephone call, carries on through the planning of the funeral and Christian service and contacting all the people involved. The smooth running on the day is so professional and unhurried - such a lot of the strain is taken care of by their more than helpful staff.
They also follow up afterwards to make sure everything went well.
An invitation to a 'Remembrance Service' takes place some time after which I've found so encouraging.
Throughout such a time of trauma you feel, and are, 'SPECIAL' - thank you!!

As a family we were needing guidance of what had to be done and we were certainly looked after well. Joanne went above and beyond, guiding us through the process of planning for my Dads funeral. We are so grateful to Joanne.

The funeral directors were very prompt in setting up a meeting and then provided all the information I required to arrange my mother’s funeral/cremation.
They were efficient and organised and provided a wonderful person to lead the ceremony.
The whole ceremony went very well and nothing more could have been asked of the directors. They were all polite and caring at this difficult time.

We expected the experience to be daunting but we were immediately put at ease by Joanne. We were treated in a friendly compassionate way yet professional way. We were not pushed into anything, all the advice was clear and understandable, but the decisions were ours.
We did go a number of times to the chapel of rest and at each time respect was given to my wife and every visitor.
On the day of the service things were run by David and again everything was as we expected. Both have also since rung us to check that we were ok with things.
