    L Hartness, and Sue in particular, were excellent in everything they did for us. All requests were dealt with and communication was first class whether by phone, email or office visit. Responses were always prompt and everything was made clear.

    I found the service second to none. The funeral of my brother was organised to perfection and we felt we could just relax and let Sue take care of everything which was particularly important as it was taking place in London and we live in Oxfordshire. We were happy with the service but would say it was very expensive so would expect that all was perfect.
