- Rating 5.07 September 2018Everything was handled perfectly from the first contact to the collection of the ashes. All staff managed the process in a very compassionate way. The vicar also delivered a very personal funeral service. The whole day went extremely smoothly allowing me to concentrate on the occasion and everyone who came to pay their respects.
