The Funeral ran smoothly with great care and respect shown at all times. My late Godmother could not ask for more. Thankyou

Sue was out point of contact. She was respectful and adapted to mine and my sister's different manors with regard to the situation.

Everything was organised promptly with little involvement from us.

As we traveled so far, the 2 cars should have been able to communicate, we ended up going on a much slower route (didn't end up being a problem, in reallity it probably helped) due to not being able to advise the other driver.

From my Sister:

FD Barry was very accommodating and troubleshooted well eg music at end of service
All smooth and well planned and organised ...
Good attention to detail and happily explained and answered all my questions of varying sorts.
Chapel of rest was lovely.
Very reassuring of all plans.

One of the team requested to come to the funeral as he had come to the house to collect Mum after she had passed, which was a really nice personal thought.

We couldn't have wanted for more.

I would like to give huge thanks to Sue and the team who looked after us so well throughout the difficult time when Dad passed away. They were professional and compassionate, answered our questions clearly and supported us all the way through. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Everything from start to finish with Dignity and Hartness was 1000%, sue was a very compassionate caring lady who I would recommend to anyone who is in the same position as I was, she most certainly knows her job very well, talked me through it all step by step, the gentlemen who came to the house to take my loved one away were wonderful, gave us plenty of time to say our goodbyes, and were very discreet when leaving the house, on the day the gentlemen were very courteous and really made us feel comfortable let us take our time, every thing was handled with kindness and compassion from start to finish , thank you all so very much kind regards Debbie Darbyshire ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.
