The staff were kind and helpful. The funeral director took care to find the precise music that we wanted and the funeral went very smoothly, with several people commenting that it was a beautiful service.

S&R Childs were just the most helpful and compassionate team I have ever had the pleasure to work with. At such a heartbreaking time in my life, they gave us the time we needed to make decisions, say goodbye and create the funeral we wished for. During the whole process, there was no pressure put upon us at all and when we made a request for a specific date, they accommodated us despite the extra work it took for them. I can say on behalf of the whole family that I cannot thank the whole team from the bottom of our hearts. From the point of picking my dad up from our home, giving us time and support to bathe and dress him to the actual cremation, we felt like no-one could have done even slightly a better job nor can we think of anything that could have been done better. Thank you ever so much for making the most awful time in our life a little better because of your kind, compassionate and supportive service.
