Despite the situation all communication with S & R Childs went smoothly, Barry managed to strike a balance between professionalism and friendliness and nothing was too much trouble. They took care of my husband and treated him with the utmost dignity. Every thing from the very start until the end went smoothly and completed with great thought. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.

I tried to give you 5 stars but couldn't get one of them to work. On the day the organisers were brilliant, compassionate and we felt well-looked after. Our driver was really nice too. Barrie came up trumps on the day, and we really thought he was wonderful.
